Mental health includes several components of living a healthy life such as one's ability to enjoy life and to cope with stresses. Forgiveness is also one path to mental health. Present study aimed to investigate the predictive relationship of dispositional forgiveness with psychological resilience and to explore the role of marital status in dispositional forgiveness and psychological resilience among women. 160 women aged between 21-40 participated in the study and provided data on Heartland Forgiveness Scale (Thompson et al., 2005) and The Brief Resilience Scale (Smith et. al., 2008). Results showed a significant positive impact on forgiveness and psychological resilience among women. Findings further revealed that marital status was the significant determinant of forgiveness and resilience among women. It was found that married women have significant effects on forgiveness and resilience. Study has the implication to enhance the mental health by learning forgiveness skills, because universal forgiveness exercises can help to find best strategies to deal with feeling of stress, hurt, pain, revenge, resentment and so on.
This article attempts to probe the level of creative thinking of teachers at Philadelphia University in Jordan, and to define its relation with several independent demographic variables, namely age, gender, duration of experience, specialization, and personality types and traits. To accomplish this purpose, three questionnaires are administered on a randomly-chosen sample of (90) teachers at Philadelphia University, Jordan.
Findings point out that personality traits included in the study are found available in teachers of Philadelphia University at meager proportions. They can be arranged according to degree of availability in the following descending order: amiable, persevering, savvy, courageous and daring, intelligent, insightful, dynamic and active, and independent. The level of creative thinking of teachers at Philadelphia University is found to be somewhat moderate. Besides, there is no statistically significant relation between the creative thinking of teachers studied and each of the following demographic variables: gender, age, experience, and personality types. Specialization and amiability are concluded to affect the level of creative thinking: the first positively and the second adversely. The other personality traits studied are not available in proportions that considerably affect the level of creative thinking of teachers. As for personality types, they were found to be mainly Epimetheans and Apollonians. Several conclusions and recommendations concerning the teachinglearning environments and processes are outlined.
This paper addresses to assess the critical thinking ability of postgraduate students. The target population was the male and female students at University level in Pakistan. A small sample of 45 male and 45 female students were selected randomly from The Islamia University of Bahawalpur, Pakistan. Cornell Critical Thinking Test Series, The Cornell Class- Reasoning Test, Form X developed by Ennis (1964) were used to assess the students' critical thinking ability. SPSS version 20 was used to analyze the data. The percentage was calculated to assess the students' critical thinking ability. The t-test was used to make comparison of the students' ability on gender bases. The analysis, based on t-value, revealed an insignificant difference between the critical thinking ability of male and female students. Recommendations were furnished in order to improve the students’ critical thinking skills.
As per RTE Act 2009, all children between the age of 6 and 14 shall have the right to free and compulsory elementary education at neighborhood schools. The facilities as mentioned in the RTE Act should reach into the hands of students properly and the teachers should have a good awareness level. This article explores the awareness of RTE Act 2009 among elementary school teachers in Coimbatore District. In this article, survey method was adopted with 100 elementary school teachers taken as a sample from Coimbatore District. A Personal Data Sheet was used to collect demographic information like qualification, locale, teaching experience and type of management. It was found that awareness level of average group was highest with 58% of the total sample. The mean scores of teachers in rural area was higher than the mean scores of urban area. In this case mean scores of under graduate teachers and post graduate teachers as well as teachers having teaching experience between 0 and 10 years and between 10 and 20 years are almost equal. From the total analysis it was found that the teachers are required to have better awareness about RTE Act in order to attain the aim of the Act.
This monograph provides a neuroscience–based systemological, epistemological, and methodological rational for the design of an advanced and novel parametric statistical analytics designed for the biological sciences referred to as “Biotrichotomy”. The aim of this new arena of statistics is to provide dual metrics designed to analyze the Pre and the Post Hoc outcomes of biological phenomena. The data analysis methodology of “Biotrichotomy” as “Biotrichotometrics” uses the unique instrumentation of the qualitative to quantitative “Tri–Squared Test”and its associated Post Hoc statistic “Tri–Center Analysis” as in–depth data analytic psychometrics. Using these two tools together the researcher has a seamless longitudinal research methodology. Access through these procedures also allows the use of the traditional parametric statistical measures of central tendency within the trichotomous research design framework. In terms of post hoc metrics, Tri–Center Analysis involves the computation of normal distribution parametric measures to examine the values of an independent statistically significant Tri–Squared Test. Both systems of statistical analysis were initially introduced in the i-manager’s Journal on Mathematics and i-manager’s Journal of Educational Technology respectively, and the result of this paper illustrates their utility, usability, and viability.
