However, people believe that it is impossible to develop multiple forms of tests that have the same psychometric properties.</p> <p><strong>Contribution: </strong>The study therefore analyzed the linear equating of senior school certificate multiple-choice examination papers in Economics.</p> <p><strong>Method:</strong> A Non-equivalent Groups Anchor Test (NEAT) design was adopted for the study. The sample for the study consisted of 1,119 senior secondary three students. The 2009 WAEC, NECO, and NABTEB SSCE multiple-choice Economics papers were adapted and used for data collection with 0.67, 0.64, and 0.60 coefficients of content validity as well as 0.79, 0.76, and 0.70 reliability coefficients. Data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistics, T-scores, and Analysis of Variance. </p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> Findings revealed that there was no difference in examinees’ ability, thus equating process could take place. The finding also revealed an F-value of 1.953, which was not significant at the 0.05 alpha level since the p-value (0.142) was greater than 0.05. It showed a score of 41 in WAEC and NECO was equivalent to 42 in NABTEB. It also showed a score of 45 in WAEC was equivalent to 46 and 50 in NECO and NABTEB respectively.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> The researchers therefore concluded that the 2009 WAEC and NECO SSCE Economics multiple-choice items tended to be equivalent while that of NABTEB was different. It was recommended among others that a regulatory body could be established to monitor and standardize these examinations conducted in Nigeria</p> Dorcas Sola Daramola, Adekunle Thomas Olutola, Mohammed Idris Jimoh Copyright (c) 2022 Dorcas Sola Daramola, Adekunle Thomas Olutola, Mohammed Idris Jimoh https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 http://journal2.uad.ac.id/index.php/spekta/article/view/4447 Wed, 14 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Building Information Modeling (BIM) Basic Competency Training to improve Building Construction Service Design Products in Banyumas Regency http://journal2.uad.ac.id/index.php/spekta/article/view/6887 <p><strong>Background</strong>: Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a technology in the field of Architecture, Engineering and Construction that is capable of simulating all information in a development project into a three-dimensional (3D) model. One of the government's efforts in dealing with the Industrial Revolution 4.0 is implementing the use of BIM, and construction technology innovations in each project cycle. By applying the BIM method, both managers, consultants and contractors are able to save processing time, costs incurred and the required workforce. The application of BIM technology can minimize the impact of work delays, increased costs, and construction failures.</p> <p><strong>Contribution: </strong>The results of the analysis of the needs of partners show that not all construction service businesses, especially in Banyumas, know and implement BIM. This community service activity is intended to provide basic training to construction service businesses regarding the operation of BIM using Tekla Structures.</p> <p><strong>Method</strong>: The method used is a partner needs analysis survey, lectures, demonstrations, discussions, and mentoring.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> The results of this dedication show that as many as 81% of participants understand the BIM concept after participating in this activity.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> The holding of this training will provide an overview, improve skills for construction services in Banyumas. Furthermore, it can be applied to the construction process (planning, implementation and maintenance), so that it will produce competitive construction service design products</p> Dani Nugroho Saputro, Nor Intang Setyo Hermanto, Gandjar Pamudji, Arnie Widyaningrum, Heryawan Susanto Copyright (c) 2022 Dani Nugroho Saputro, Nor Intang Setyo Hermanto, Gandjar Pamudji, Arnie Widyaningrum, Heryawan Susanto https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 http://journal2.uad.ac.id/index.php/spekta/article/view/6887 Wed, 14 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 A Community Empowerment Through Motorcycle Reparation Training at Youth Organization http://journal2.uad.ac.id/index.php/spekta/article/view/6839 <table> <tbody> <tr> <td> <p><strong>Background</strong>: In Karangtanjung Village, Sidoarjo, the youth and women have solid cadet members. However, so far the activities carried out are of a social nature and do not focus on economic development. Youth organizations in the Karangtanjung Village often receive visits from several universities to provide counseling. However, the visit did not involve training. For this reason, the University of Sunan Giri Surabaya community service team carried out community service activities. This activity aims to provide training on motorcycle engines.</p> <p><strong>Contribution: </strong>Economic development from the participation of youth in the village through businesses in the motorbike service sector</p> <p><strong>Method</strong>: Direct training to youths and get to know various minor problems on motorbikes.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> The results of this community service activity can be said to be successful and did not encounter significant obstacles. There were 30 participants who already had an understanding of how to lightly maintain motorbikes and how to carry out motorcycle maintenance and repairs. All residents of Karangtanjung and University of Sunan Giri appreciate the community service activities that have been carried out.</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Youth organizations have the ability to carry out minor motorcycle repairs which can be used as initial provisions if they are going to become entrepreneurs in the automotive sector</p> Rahayu Mardikaningsih, Ella Anastasya Sinambela, Didit Darmawan, Samsul Arifin, Jahroni Jahroni, Arif Rachman Putra, M.

Educators have excellent opportunities to develop professional competencies that can be enhanced, one of which is the ability to technically and creatively create innovative learning designs that facilitate educators' ability to optimize students' abilities.</p> <p><strong>Contribution: </strong>The contribution of this research is to raise awareness among educators in the digital arena of what is required to develop innovative and creative History learning media. Other matters related to educators' confidence in leveraging technology in History learning also need to be optimized.</p> <p><strong>Method</strong>: Synthesis method. Researcher synthesized information naturally to help others see connections between things.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> The t-test result indicated that the post-test scores were significantly higher for the experimental group (M = 41.71, SD = 2.14) than for the control group (M = 20.41, SD = 4.3), t = 4.130, p &lt; .001. In other words, there was a significant difference in the mean post-test results between the experimental and control groups. As such, Edmodo can positively impact the academic performance of higher education students. When being applied to the experimental and control methods, the ratio was 2.62, which was greater than the reference value (1.2). This showed that Edmodo effectively improved students' study skills and knowledge.</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> The impact of this result can be explained by the fact that Edmodo increased the use of collaborative e-learning in the experimental group to keep students informed. A good website provides students with high-quality information, creativity, participatory activities and collaboration in a category called Social Networking and Communication. The application of digital literacy by utilizing media in History learning can be done by utilizing the existing facilities at Edmodo</p> Bih Ni Lee Copyright (c) 2022 Bih Ni Lee https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 http://journal2.uad.ac.id/index.php/spekta/article/view/6276 Wed, 14 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Capacity Building of Library Human Resources through Senayan Library Management System (SLIMs) Training for Digital-Based Collection Processing http://journal2.uad.ac.id/index.php/spekta/article/view/6594 <p><strong>Background</strong>: Library is one of the supporting elements in the learning process in the institutions. The circulation of borrowing and returning books is an activity that runs in the library. The process of improving library services can be carried out by officers through various aspects started from the development of collection materials to the dissemination of information. However, in current conditions, there are still many circulation service processes carried out by libraries using conventional media by recording in the library ledger for every user who borrows books.</p> <p><strong>Contribution: </strong>The purpose of the activity is to provide knowledge to library managers to be able to take advantage of the Senayan Library Management System (SLiMS) in improving library services.</p> <p><strong>Method</strong>: The methodology used is through training and counseling to a librarian.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> The results of community service activities that have been carried out are the transformation of library processing using digital media in the form of the SLiMS application. Improved services to library users are becoming more optimal. This can be seen in the list of visits increasing to 30% every month and regulations on borrowing books reaching 25%, while delays in returning books have decreased to 2%. This has an impact because the process of tracking book collections is very easy so that the identities of the users are stored and can be monitored by librarian.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Services to library members are getting better and the knowledge of library managers is getting optimal in carrying out library processing with the help of SLiMS</p> Yadi, Alharia Dinata Copyright (c) 2022 Yadi https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 http://journal2.uad.ac.id/index.php/spekta/article/view/6594 Wed, 14 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Usage and Impact of Teachers Self-Assessment Practices on Teaching of Upper Basic Social Studies in Kwara State http://journal2.uad.ac.id/index.php/spekta/article/view/4016 <table> <tbody> <tr> <td> <p><strong>Background</strong>: Self-assessment is a mechanism that enables teachers to reflect how their own work meets the goals.
