AN EXAMPLE OF EDUCATIONAL POLICY IN THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA
Katarina Aladrović Slovaček
University of Zagreb, Croatia
Abstract. When it comes to language contents, European language policies pay special attention to validation of achievements in mother tongue acquisition (The Common European Framework of References for Languages – Learning, teaching, assessment, 2001). In accordance with these guidelines, there is a curriculum approach to educational contents in the Republic of Croatia. The Croatian language curriculum has the largest number of school hours since, apart from learning language and literature contents; it also serves as a basis for acquiring contents of other school subjects. Croatian language as a school subject is divided into four fields: language, literature, language expression and media culture. Therefore, the knowledge of pupils is assessed by these fields. Since validation systems are considered to be an important segment of progress in language learning, individual assessment is recommended. In practice, however, one should make a distinction among assessment, validation and evaluation of acquired contents.This paper presents the results of empirical research showing the models according to which the teachers in primary and secondary schools in the Republic of Croatia validate the pupils’ achievements in learning of standard Croatian language.
Keywords: docimologycal models, assessment, evaluation and validation of language knowledge, Croatian language learning and teaching

Abstract. This paper is a product of long contemplation and elaboration of the goal and many other issues that emerged through the eras of education, with the sole purpose, by an approximate effort of philosophical and social aspect, for theeducation to be established in the group of universal sciences as impetuses of the modern society in Europe and further. The education is a philosophical and sociological immanence, which thepedagogic principles, attitudes and ideas typified and transcended in the area of education and the educational being of the humans, are based on. The education is a great necessity and a need, in which the presence and the future of the modern societies are incorporated for the development of the personalities of people and society in general. In other words, the people may become individual, personal, family, and social beings only if they are educated. The global education of people is the main condition for the globalization of the humane values. This is a conscious activity, which opens new horizons in the development of the modern European societies. The great sociological and philosophical basis, with great material and spiritual values could not be created without education. From this we can see the great importance of the education, which has a factor influence that connects all material, spiritual, sensory, thinking, intellectual and spiritual activities in people. All this means that the versatile education becomes a necessity for the further development of the democratic European society, and at the same time, provides enrichment with scientific knowledge because science is an integral part of the progress, since it has a connection to all forms of social awareness. On the other hand, as we have already said, knowledge is gained and obtained though all forms of the educational process, which is a guarantee for a healthy development of people and societies.

Abstract. The aim of the study is to compare pre-school children’s behaviors according to perceptions of mothers and teachers. Also, the study examines their behaviors in terms of the socio-economical level of the family. The articipants of the study were 136 mothers and 9 teachers who volunteered to be involved in the study. The research was carried out in 2009-2010 academic year, in 4 primary schools in Edirne. Being members of Ministry of National Education, these schools were located in different areas where families from different socio -economical levels lived. To gather data, for basic participant profile „Personal Information Form“ developed by the researchers was used. For main data seeking to find answers for preschool children’s behaviors at home and school, „Behavior Scale for Pre-School Children“ was used (Merrell, 2002). The Turkish version of the scale which was translated into Turkish in 2007 by Okyay and Fazlıoğlu was used. The validity and reliability issues of the Turkish version were also checked by the researchers. The data was quantitatively analyzed through SPSS 17.0 (Statistical Package Software). t-test, variance analysis, and LSD test were performed for the analysis. The significance level was determined to be as p<0.05. A meaningful difference was found between preschool children’s behaviors according to mothers’ and teachers’ perceptions in terms of the scale’s social cooperation, problem expression and learning problem sub-dimensions. Also, there is a meaningful difference between pre-school children’s behaviors according to perceptions of teachers in terms of the socio-economical level of the family. However, meaningful difference was not found in terms of social expression.

Abstract.. В съвремието процесите по създаване, съхраняване и прослушване на музикални произведения са подпомогнати от компютъра. Изградени върху основата на научни постижения в областта електрониката и физиката, компютърните технологии интензивно навлизат във всички музикални области. В този смисъл, докладът е позициониран върху проучване, което има за цел да установи какви са интересите на студентите – бъдещи начални учители, към музикално-компютърните технологии. В процеса на проучването са използвани анкета и интервю. Анкетата предоставя възможности за относително кратко време да се събере необходимият емпиричен материал и същевременно осигурява време за внимателно обмисляне на отговорите, след като респонденти- те имат пред себе си отпечатан въпросник. Чрез интервюто, в непосредствен разговор с анкетираните студенти, се осигурява допълване на данните от анкетата. Проучването се базира на контингент от студенти във втори и трети курс от Тракийски университет, Педагогически факултет, специалност ПНУП и НУПЧЕ. В резултат на анкетното проучване и проведеното интервю се очертава ясна картина и информация относно предпочитанията и интересите на студентите към използваните през свободното им време музикално-компютърни технологии за запис, конвертиране, запазване и съхранение, обработка и прослушване на музика. В заключение се правят изводи за актуалността на проблема по придобиване на знания, умения за музикално-компютърните технологии и техния пренос и приложение в обучението по музика в началното училище.

Abstract. In a world where media, technique and technology occupy an important place in the human existence, the control of their presence in children’s and youth’s live is difficult. Besides the opportunities and didactic positivity that media as assets for educational activity possess, they can still be a source of negative impacts. That’s why, the child’s empowerment, since its early childhood, for proper media utilization in the educational aims is essential. Family and pre-school institutions are the key areas that have the power to do so. They can continuously and systematically perform selection and target the positive media influence in child’s development. During the media application process, several aspects must be considered, including: child’s age, transmitted media content, as well as the continuous monitoring and control of child’s activity. We conducted a survey in February and March 2013, in order to perceive the media usage in the families and their influence on the children. Our sample of the survey is consisted of 143 parents of children who attend major groups in two kindergartens in urban environment – Stip. By examining the views and opinions of the parents we wanted to see: how child’s leisure time has been organized, regarding the media usage; parents’ information and opinion about the available educational child’s contents; media influence on child’s perception and behavior.

GROUP IN FEMALE STUDENTS AGED 10
University „Ss Cyril & Methodius“ – Skopje
Abstract. The basic goal of this research is to determine the motor abilities of the female students aged 10 and their influence on the inter-personal relations in the class, i.e. the influence on the social status of the individual in the primary schools in Skopje, Republic of Macedonia. The sample of variables consists of 2 anthropometric and 6 motor variables, as well as 12 variables for determination of the social status of the individual in the group. The data obtained with the use of the descriptive statistical methods, such as: arithmetic mean, standard deviation, skewness, kurtosis, minimal and maximal result, will give an image about the researched statistical positions, which will be used in the further interpretation of the results of the research. The multivariate statistical methods accurately locate the influence of the motor abilities on the social status of the individual in the group – regressive analysis, where we will determine the influence of the criterion variable on the system of predictors with the coefficients of the partial regression and the coefficients of the multiple regression and the coefficient of determination. The obtained results allow us to make a scientific conclusion at the appropriate level with statistical significance of .05, whereby we notice that the female students who do a sport and have good motor abilities are positively accepted by their peers.

Abstract.. Тази статия разглежда проблемите от доцимологичен характер, свързани с евристичната оценка на проведените писмени изпити по Обща езикова култура за Тракийски университет, резултатите от които се използват от Университета за допускане и класиране на кандидатите. Обсъждат се възможни подходи за намаляване на отрицателното въздействие на грешна оценка при класирането на кандидати с подобни (близки) оценки поради важните жизнени последствия на оценката за учениците и за целите на приема в Университета. В тази връзка се предлага 33-степенна скала, чиито класове имат обхват, пропорционален на разпределението на грешката в обхвата на оценките. Използването на подобна скала, чиито класове зависят от грешката на оценката, прави процеса на оценяване точен, което намалява риска от неправилно класифициране.

Abstract. At a time of explosion of information, the school can successfully realize its tasks if it enables the students for independent work. The modern education should rely on the abilities of the students, to assess their activity as a basis in the teaching work and always encourage, direct and develop it. The school, as an educational institution, has a great interest in the development of the creativity of the students and the education in general. The students are creative, they may create by themselves if they are enabled to, and the teacher is the one who should provide appropriate encouragement. The basic activity of the teachers should be discovering the creative potentials of the students. A creative teacher encourages and respects the creative feelings of the student, carefully monitors them and studies the creative potentials of the students. The creative education enables the student to acquire new knowledge. The creative students do not expect an explanation to a given problem. They find a solution which is new to them with their resourcefulness and abilities. During the teaching process, the students should be enabled to think in a new way, to develop a logical and creative mind, and they should be enabled to independently acquire knowledge and use different sources of knowledge. The modern education includes models which are directed towards new strategies and are based on creative work with the students. The problem solving is the highest form of learning and this is why the students should be enabled to use this way of acquiring new knowledge. In this way, learning
turns into thinking and creating.
