The Efficiency in the Cognitive Representation of Information among the Students’ Enrolled in the Faculty of Education at the University of Hail in the light of some variables (Published)

The present study aimed to identify the extent of efficiency in the cognitive representation of information among the students’ enrolled in the faculty of education at the University of Hail. The study’s sample consists from 320 female and male students. The researcher used the cognitive representation scale which was developed by Rajab (2007). It was found that the level of the cognitive representation efficiency is moderate among those students. The efficiency in adopting the feature comparison model is ranked first. The efficiency in adopting the cognitive network modelis ranked second. The efficiency in adopting the spreading activation model is ranked third. It was found that there is a statistically significant difference between the students’ cognitive representation efficiency level which can be attributed to gender. The latter difference is for the favor of females. It was found that there is a statistically significant difference between the students’ efficiency levels which can be attributed to the academic year. The latter difference is for the favor of fourth year students. It was found that there is a statistically significant difference between the students’ efficiency levels which can be attributed to the academic achievement level. The latter difference is for the favor of the students whose academic achievement is excellent.

With Mobile Technology (MT) getting smaller, cheaper and easier to carry, the new generation has been bombarded with various mobile technology devices that seem to be invading every single aspect of their lives. Educators and learners in higher education institutes need to realize the extent to which undergraduate learners are ready to deploy MT as learning facilitators. Hence, our present study aims to find out the students beliefs and views on the importance of MT in their educational life. In order to fulfill the study’s objectives, 328 undergraduate students were randomly selected across four different departments at the College of Basic Education in Kuwait, during the spring semester of the academic year 2012/2013. The data were collected based on the informants’ responses on 18- itemed questionnaire that was mainly designed to reflect on the students’ views over the main study objectives. As a result, the students’ responses were categorized into three dimensions that should eventually fulfill our study goals; interest in MT devices, efficiency of various MT devices, and the importance of MT application in the students’ education. The study results revealed the students high interested in MT deployment within their education as they motivate them to learn and provide them with wider learning opportunities, especially in the discipline of distance learning. Students have also perceived MT as more efficient. Older students tend to agree less. Efficiency of MT has further been pressed in the discipline of language learning.

The study examined the impact of records keeping on office managers in tertiary institutions in Nigeria. Two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. A descriptive survey research design was used for the study.The study was carried out in Ebonyi and Enugu States of Nigeria. The entire population comprising of 100 office managers was studied. A four point response item questionnaire was used as the instrument for data collection. Two experts in the department of business education and one expert in educational measurement and evaluation were given the drafted copies of the questionnaire for face and content validity. Cronbach Alpha was used to ascertain the reliability of the instrument. The data collected were analyzed using mean, standard deviation and t-test statistics. The findings of the study showed that records’ keeping is very important for effective planning of the office. Despite the importance of records keeping on office management, it has been constrained by lack of funds, insufficient skills, poor storage, and lack of infrastructure etc. Furthermore, the null hypotheses were accepted. Based on these findings, the researcher recommended that government and school authorities should provide adequate funds and sufficient skills for the effective management of office records, there should be adequate training and retraining of office managers, also there should be adequate infrastructure in the school.
