Sustaining Clients’ Index of Satisfaction at the Graduate School Level in a Catholic University in Northern Philippines
Original Research
In a higher education institution that subscribes to the standards of quality and excellence, it normally becomes part of its routine activities to ensure sustaining its stakeholders with high degree of satisfaction and delight through the regular conduct of customer satisfaction surveys (CSSs). In St. Paul University Philippines (SPUP), the first ISO 9001-certified private university in the Philippines, CSSs are regularly done to assess how well it has succeeded in providing quality services and products both to its internal and external customers. This study is conducted in the Graduate School level of the University to primarily assess the extent of the graduate school student graduates’ satisfaction with respect to the quality of services and products provided to them by SPUP using a questionnaire based survey tool. Generally, the graduate participants in both the master’s and doctoral programs are very satisfied with the academic services and products that the University has provided them with, in areas such as general services, quality of service given by its academic and non-academic support staff, learning support facilities, learning experience and research related concerns. This study noted that despite the high ratings given by the participants on almost all areas, the University needs to improve its lodging and accommodation services for its foreign students as well as the services of the University Canteen and its other food satellites, its computer laboratory facilities and its document reproduction/duplicating facilities.

Teachers’ Selected Factors on Truancy among Adolescents in Secondary Schools in Kenya
Original Research
The study investigated the contributions of teachers’ factors on truancy among adolescents in secondary schools in Manyatta, Embu County, Kenya. A survey design was employed. The respondents were three hundred and twenty that were randomly selected from two thousand three hundred and eighty four. The instruments for data collection were student’s questionnaire, deputy principal’s questionnaire, record analysis and researcher’s observations schedules. Data was analysed through descriptive statistics and Chi- square was used to test for the association between the teachers’ factors and truancy. The findings revealed that some teachers were not involved in the discipline of the students. Further, the study observed that the teachers were administering harsh punishment and in most cases the punishments were not proportional to the offence committed. In addition, the guidance and counselling services were not effective in most schools. Moreover, the study observed that the teachers’ factors were significantly associated with truancy among the students. Therefore, the study recommended that all teachers to be involved in matters of discipline in schools. The disciplinary measures to be modified in consultation with the students and teachers. The counselling services need to be activated and managed by trained teacher counsellors. Further, the study recommended peer counselling training to be offered to all students.

Techniques for Writing Learning Objectives in Teaching Chemistry in High School
Original Research
Determining the learning objectives clearly is to show the teacher's responsibility and commitment to the learners according to the published subject program. On the basis of specific goals, teachers easily design lessons to help students develop the necessary competencies. Based on Bloom's cognitive levels, we have proposed verbs as well as learning objective writing forms for teachers to refer to. From that applying for the specific lesson plan “Alcohol” belongs to high school chemistry program in Vietnam including: (1) objectives, (2) plan of teaching, (3) worked examples and (4) homework. The results of analyzing pedagogical experimental data on high school students show that designing teachers' teaching goals has a great influence on deciding the success of the lesson. Comparison before and after the impact of designing goals on learning outcomes of learners shows the feasibility of the study.

Using Student Facilitator in Group Working of a Large Class
Original Research
In attempt to create more interesting and motivating lessons for university students, and inspiring learners’ autonomy, teachers in Foreign Language Department of Thai Nguyen University of Economics and Business Administration (TUEBA), Viet Nam have been working industriously to find out the most appropriate methods matched with teaching context. It, however, has been a trouble with all of them because the number of students in each class is up to 60, even more. Hence, it is such a challenge to conduct their lectures effectively because there is a lack of fully attention from all of their students. The answer for this problem is to use the role of students themselves as facilitators for class activities, which is considered an appropriate solution. Thus, in this paper, the investigation on the effectiveness of this strategy is discussed.

The Effect of Using Active Learning Strategies on Secondary EFL Learners' Grammar Achievement
Original Research
This study aimed at investigating the effect of using active learning strategies on Saudi 1st secondary EFL learners' grammar achievement. The researcher adopted the quasi- experimental approach. The sample of the study consisted of (45) male learners of King Abdullah Secondary School, Najran, Saudi Arabia. The participants were distributed into two groups. One of the groups represented the control group of (22) students; and the other represented the experimental one of (23) students. The active learning strategies were used in teaching the experimental group, while the traditional grammar teaching method was used with the control one. A 20-item grammar test was designed to be used as a pre and post- test. The data analysis of the post-test grammar scores revealed that there were statistically significant differences between mean scores of the experimental and the control group favoring the experimental group; that is to say, the experimental group outperformed the control group. Thus, the implementation of the active learning strategies proved to have a positive effect on Saudi 1st secondary EFL learners' grammar achievement.

Pre-service Teachers’ Perception of Readiness to Teach in Light of Teachers’ Standards
Original Research
This study examines the extent to which the graduate teachers from Bahrain Teachers College (BTC) meet Teachers’ Standards which are set by the Ministry of Education in Bahrain (MoE). In particular, the study explores the extent to which pre-service teachers at BTC are equipped with the appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes to implement these standards. Mixed research methods were employed to conduct this study. On one hand the findings revealed that the results were mixed regarding the pre-service teachers’ perceptions of readiness to teach in relation to content knowledge, dealing with parents, school administration and MoE. On the other hand, they indicate that pre-service teachers show strong agreement with the effectiveness of the BTC’s teacher education program in preparing them to implement the Teachers' Standards (Mean= 4.10, SD = 0.85).
