This study was based on the current growing trend of implementing e-learning in highschools. Most endeavors have been inefficient, rendering an objective of determining the initial steps that could be taken to improve these efforts by assessing a student population's computer skill levels and performances in an IT course. Demographic factors were also taken into account while formulating these recommendations. Basic computer skill levels were measured through the administration of the Technical Survival Skill Test (TSST) questionnaire, developed by the University of Toronto. Academic performances were evaluated through several assignments designed by the IT course instructors. The main result of this study indicated that computer skill levels did have a direct correlation with a student’s academic performance level. The database was further parsed based on demographical factors, resulting in a set of recommendations to enhance the effectiveness of e-learning.
The result of the study showed that English summative tests at the odd semester at SMPN 12 South Tangerang have attained 33.3%. It means that the result of summative test at the odd semester of SMPN 12 South Tangerang is categorized into “Insufficient” level of a content validity in contructing English summative test. SMP UTAMA have attained 20%. It means SMP UTAMA is categorized into “Poo r ” level of a content validity. However, 20% of the question items that confirmed to English syllabus at SMP IT MADANI 8. It showed that SMP IT MADANI 8 is included into “Poor” level of a Content Validity. Therefore, the writer conclude that three junior highschools in South Tangerang that have accredited A, B, and has not acredited yet still had not attained a good validity because English summative test had not represent all the indicators.

I hereby declare that this thesis entitled “ The influence of student engagement and teachers’ performance to students’ satisfaction in public senior highschools in Bandung (Indonesia) ”, a descriptive study at the public senior highschools in Bandung , Indonesia, iswhollythe product of my own work in all its contents.

An emerging consensus exists in the school reform literatureabout what conditions contribute to student satisfaction. This among many variables includes student engagement and teachers’ performance. Satisfied students are more likely to be committed and continue their studies (as measured by a higher retention rate) than unsatisfied students, who are likely to be less willing to regularly attend classes, and are more likely to quit their studies. However, some students report that they are not satisfied at school and they do not find schooling enjoyable and interesting at senior highschools. In response to this problem I intent or propose to carry out a research to investigate on the most important independent variables namely, student engagement and teachers’ performance for students’ satisfaction. Teachers’ performance will includ e the use of ICT in the process of learning.

This study investigated the culture representation of two prescribed English textbooks suggested by the Indonesian Curriculum and Publishing Centre (Puskurbuk) used in highschools in Indonesia. Its aim was to investigate whether the representation of culture supported the main goal of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teaching, which is intercultural communicative competence (ICC). For this purpose, culture was classified as source, target, and international target culture (Cortazzi & Jin, 1990). A classification on the level of ICC was also conducted to these textbooks. It was found that the prescribed English textbooks portrayed the culture of local (Indonesia), the culture of target countries (American and British), and the culture of other international countries in a quantitatively similar portion. However, qualitatively, the presented culture tended to be artificial instead of substantial. Comparison and contrast among cultures were not found, therefore, intercultural competence was not achieved.
Lots of scholars emphasize that education is the best way which leads a country to betterment. It is quoted from Nelson Mandela that ‘education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’ thus it is also noteworthy for poverty eradication and employability improvement. Following this, Indonesia Ministry of Education and Culture from 2004 keeps increasing the number of vocational highschools (VHSs) in many provinces. Though in 2012 the ratio of vocational highschools to senior highschools was still 47:53, the government attempts VHSs could reach 55% in 2015. This decision is fairly reasonable after evaluating the rising number of the unemployment rate for senior high school graduates which rises up to 1.841.545 (BPS, 2013). For the unemployment rate always affects a nation’s economic sustainability, the graduates of VHSs are highly expected to be professional employees regionally, nationally, and not to mention globally.
In essence, the success in the learning process is not only determined by the accuracy of teachers in choosing the method used, the independence of students in their learning also has a very large role. Independent learning does not mean learning alone but learning that relies on the activities and responsibilities of the student to achieve learning success. Independence of the student in question is the attitude of students to not depend on others for every problem facing learning. Students are required to be able to resolve an issue with the ability to learn and their own efforts so that students with high self-reliance can obtain better performance.
The first phase of this two-year study aims at describing the teachers’ awareness to include culture in the teaching and learning process, what cultural aspects are included in the English textbooks used in a number of schools in the Province of DIY and how the cultural elements are inserted in the books. The research data were obtained through a focus group discussion (FGD) attended by 20 English teachers from 5 regencies in the Province of DIY and from 7 English textbooks used by these teachers. The data from the FGD were analyzed using qualitative data analysis, while the books were discerned using content analysis. The results of the analyses show (1) the teachers have inserted cultural elements in their teaching and learning process, following the explicit and implicit modes of insertion used in the textbooks; (2) the cultural elements in the books consist of knowledge, behaviors, and artifacts; and (3) there are 409 western cultural elements and 739 Indonesian ones, but they are not followed by adequate explanations to anticipate confusion and misunderstanding.

presentation in Table 4.2 can be seen that the total number of positive scale is respectively 78 and 56 and both of which are subtracted by the total number of both negative scale namely disagree and strongly disagree namely -22 and -8. This item, then show the total number 104 or 0. 84 which is higher that the previous component which has only 0. 05. It means that the level of student’s contentedness is higher than classroom situation showing the costiveness so we can say that teaching aids and facilities is enough, but the data interview presents that teaching aids and facilities however should be considered. It deals with the interview data shows in Participant 2/ A-19, A-22 and A-23 which respectively word such as “…the students do not have a guided book…” “…maybe, the total of books is limited. It is probably only for the teacher…” when the participant is asked the questionerr – the teacher uses the facilities such as book, dictionary, visual aids, so on (Q-01). This description is so concerned when we compare with other schools outside Indonesia, where the students are lent by the schools some books. Dealing with data interview quoted from Participant 2/ A-57 and Participant 5/ A-25 below, a description teaching aids and facilities hoped by the students can be described.
