Developing An Islamic Adab-Based Teacher Leadership Model to Improve Teacher Performance in Islamic Boarding Schools

Purpose: This study aims to overcome the problem of improving teacher performance by improving the quality of teacher leadership. Research methodology: This development research adapts the Borg and Gall research and development model, with the research subjects being teachers. This study has five main objectives: describing the needs of teachers to develop an Islamic manners-based teacher leadership model to improve teacher performance, designing and developing a prototype of the model, evaluating the validity and practicality, and assessing the effectiveness of the teacher leadership model. Data were collected from experts and practitioners using observation methods, implementation surveys, and assessment sheets. Data analysis techniques involved quantitative and descriptive analyses. Results: The results of the development research indicate that (1) teachers’ need for Islamic adab-based teacher leadership is very high as a guide for learning and mentoring students on a daily basis; (2) the prototype of this teacher leadership model includes a series of steps, starting from the flowchart, framework, and components, to the stages of treatment for teachers; and (3) the assessment of the feasibility of the Islamic adab-based teacher leadership model shows a very high validity category with an average score of 3. 66, (4) Its practicality is assessed as practical with an average value of 3.20; (5) there is a real difference in the effect of applying the Islamic adab-based teacher leadership model at Insan Cendekia Madani High School before and after the application of the model to improve teacher performance with a survey of the impact of model implementation that reaches very high normality values of 0.529 and 0.128 > 0.05, t-test 0.000 < 0.05, and moderate N-Gain 0.60 < 0.70, with a percentage of moderately effective results at 58%.

Conservation of Palm Wine Using Ultraviolet Radiation

Purpose This study investigated the conservation of palm wine using ultraviolet radiation. Research Methodology The palm wine was conserved by sterilization with ultraviolet rays sterilizer. The time of contact of the rays and the intensity of the rays with palm wine was varied. The microorganisms considered include mould, yeast and bacteria. Results Results obtained shows that the microbial load of sterilized palm wine decreased with time of contact with rays. The microbial loads of the wine before and after sterilization were determined. More so, the microbial load further decreased during storage of sterilized samples. In fact, sterilization time of 240 seconds (4 minutes) reduced the mould and yeast from  to  and then to zero after 10 days of preservation. Limitation This research did not consider the effect of stirring on the microbial load reduction. Contribution This research has established an ideal sterilization time of 240 seconds (4 minutes) for palm wine sterilization.

The Influence of Organizational Behavior and Finger Print Technology on Employee Work Discipline at The Palopo City Land Office

Purpose: The aim of this research is that researchers want to determine whether organizational behavior and fingerprint technology influence the work discipline at the Palopo City Land Office. Research methodology: Quantitative methods were used in this study. This research was conducted at the Palopo City Land Office between October and November 2023. Data were obtained by distributing questionnaires to 80 respondents. The collected data were tested using multiple linear regression analysis with SPSS statistics application program version 20 to test two or more independent variables against the dependent variable. Results: From the results of the T test, it is proven that the organizational behavior variable has a partial effect on work discipline at the Palopo City Land Office, and that the fingerprint technology variable has a partial effect on work discipline at the Palopo City Land Office. The test results from this research show that fcount > Fiable or 117,552 3.11, with a significance value of 0.001 < 0.05, can be said to be significant because this proves that organizational behavior and fingerprint technology have a positive effect on work discipline. Implementation: Thus, it can be concluded that all independent variables in this research work together or simultaneously on the dependent variable. The coefficient of determination in this study was also 0.753 or 75.3%, which shows that organizational behavior and fingerprint technology can influence changes in work discipline, while the remaining 24.7% is explained by other factors outside of this research.

Development of a web-based Multimedia Learning Management System (MlMS) in High School Physics Learning

Purpose: This research aims to investigate: (1) students' needs for a web-based Multimedia Learning Management System (MLMS) in high school physics learning, (2) designing a prototype model for developing a web-based Multimedia Learning Management System (MLMS) in high school physics learning, (3 ) the validity of the web-based Multimedia Learning Management System (MLMS) development model in high school physics learning, (4) measuring the practicality of the web-based Multimedia Learning Management System (MLMS) development model in high school physics learning, and (5) the effectiveness of the Multimedia Learning Management System development model (MLMS) web-based in high school physics learning. Research methodology: The research method applied was research and development using the one-group pre-test and post-test design (ADDIE) model. The object of this research was high school students, with samples taken from four schools (three private schools and one state school) in South Tangerang. Results: The assessment results for static electricity material at schools I and II were in the medium category, with gain value of 0.64 and 0.63, respectively, while at school III, they were in the high category with a gain value of 0.70. Statistical significance (school I, school II, and school III) in Static Electricity shows t < 0.05, while in dynamic electricity material, schools I and II are in the high category, with the same gain value of 0.7 and a significant level t-test results t < 0.05. Implementation: The material expert validation results showed a validity level of 90.91% (very good), whereas the multimedia expert validation results reached 83.75% (very good). Professional physics teachers gave positive responses, with a material and multimedia acceptance rate of 84.82% (very good), whereas student responses reached 79.98% (very good). Effectiveness based on improving student learning outcomes was measured by providing pre-tests, treatments, and post-tests (One Group Pre-test, Post-test Design) using the N-gain value.
