AbstractThis study explored the relationship between vocabulary learning strategies and learner variables of Iranian learners of English as a foreign Language (EFL) with special reference to their personality types to examine what implications these associations have for teaching EFL. It tried to find any possible relation between vocabulary learning strategies use of Iranian EFL students and two personality types, namely emotionality and openness to experience. For so doing, a representative sample of the EFL students was chosen, which comprised 120 second year EFL students from Islamic Azad university of Tabriz. The data were collected using two questionnaires - Schmitt’s vocabulary learning strategy questionnaire and HEXACO personality assessment questionnaire;only two dimensions of emotionality and openness to experience were investigated in this research. The Pearson correlation coefficient was used to measure the associations between the learner variables and use of vocabulary learning strategies. The findings showed differences in strategy use indicating that these strategy choices are correlated with their personality type. It was found that there is a positive relation between emotionality and cognitive strategies, and also between emotionality and metacognitive strategies. The results also showed that there is a positive relation between openness to experience and memory, and social strategies.

We stand out the importance of its role connecting micro and macro organizational level offering a very important contribution when examining the strategy-as-practice perspective and integrative strategy formation process. The main goal of this research is to analyse the relationship between the integrative strategy formation process and the roles of middle management under the strategy-as-practice perspective. To check it out we adopted a qualitative methodology droving a case analysis in a Spanish University. Data was collected by means of personal interviews with members of different levels of the Institution, documents analysis and direct observation. In advance of some results we find out that the University develops an integrative strategy formation process and confers to middle management an important role extended all over the organization.

Pengaruh kesediaan dalaman, strategi pembangunan dalaman, strategi latihan dan strategi menghafal Al-Quran terhadap pencapaian subjek Hifz Al-Quran pelajar tahfiz di MalaysiaIntan Zakiah, Jamaluddin (2018)The achievements of tahfiz students are variable. Most studies in the field of tahfiz education concentrate on the external aspects such as techniques and methods of memorization, teaching and syllabus, environmental factors, facilities and institutions. However, not much researches were done focusing on the quality or characteristics of the students. The objectives of this study focus on the internal readiness, internal development strategies, training strategies, and Qur’an memorization strategies towards the performance. The study used a quantitative approach through questionnaires and supported by qualitative data using interviews and observation with the students and lecturers. A sample of 298 diplomas students from JAKIM tahfiz institutions were chosen using stratified random methods. Questionnaires were adapted from previous studies. Overall, descriptive data analysis showed students achievement were dominance at the outstanding levels compared to other achievement levels. The study found that the internal readiness (r = 0.167, p <0.01) and the Qur’an memorization strategy (r = 0.139, p <0.01) had significant relationship with the performance in the Ḥifẓ al-Qurʾan subject. While regression analysis showed that the component of internal readiness is the key predictor of achievement. The self-efficacy elements in the internal readiness components could predicts 8.9% of the achievement variances. While the findings of interview data and the observational had described the elements in the four variables in more details. The findings of this study illustrate that the internal readiness and Quran memorization strategy are the two most important characteristics of the tahfiz students. However, internal development strategies and training strategies component should also be addressed and have important roles. This study implies that developing all four characteristics in the students is fundamental for the improvement of the quality of the ḥuffaẓ generation. Its findings could also give specific guidances to the practitioners, policy makers, implementers of Tahfiz institution and science corpus.
