Purpose The purpose of this clinical focus article was to discuss the important relationship between executive function and language skills and to provide speech-language pathologists (SLPs) with strategies for promoting student success. Background and Method The impact of executive function processes on language and literacy begins in the preschool years and becomes increasingly important from third grade onward. These executive function processes play a more dominant role when tasks require students to integrate and synthesize multiple linguistic and other subskills in order to read and comprehend, write, complete projects, and study for quizzes and tests. In this clinical focus article, we provide a brief overview of research-based executive function strategies that are beneficial for all learners and are essential for students with language weaknesses as well as learning and attention difficulties. We focus on the key executive function processes that are the foundation of academic performance, namely, goal setting, organizing and prioritizing, thinking and problem-solving flexibly, accessing information in working memory, and self-monitoring. We discuss a theoretical framework for understanding and promoting metacognition and executive function as part of assessment and treatment plans for SLPs. Finally, we address the importance of executive function strategies for improving students' effort, academic performance, and resilience. Conclusion SLPs can promote student success by offering structured and systematic approaches to teaching executive function strategies.

The purpose of this paper is to define the concept of (3, 2)-fuzzy sets and discuss their relationship with other kinds of fuzzy sets. We describe some of the basic set operations on (3, 2)-fuzzy sets. (3, 2)-Fuzzy sets can deal with more uncertain situations than Pythagorean and intuitionistic fuzzy sets because of their larger range of describing the membership grades. Furthermore, we familiarize the notion of (3, 2)-fuzzy topological space and discuss the master properties of (3, 2)-fuzzy continuous maps. Then, we introduce the concept of (3, 2)-fuzzy points and study some types of separation axioms in (3, 2)-fuzzy topological space. Moreover, we establish the idea of relation in (3, 2)-fuzzy set and present some properties. Ultimately, on the basis of academic performance, the decision-making approach of student placement is presented via the proposed (3, 2)-fuzzy relation to ascertain the suitability of colleges to applicants.

En los últimos veinte años, el Ministerio de Educación de Perú viene aplicando y acompañando la medición de logros de aprendizaje de los estudiantes de la educación básica por medio de evaluaciones nacionales e internacionales a gran escala. Estos estudios están llevando no sólo a conocer las causas de los logros de aprendizaje, sino al de tratar de revertir alguna situación no deseada. La investigación, en proceso, en la cual se basa este artículo, tiene como objetivo identificar de qué manera la inteligencia emocional influye en el rendimiento académico de estudiantes de nivel secundario de una institución educativa en Lima, Perú. Esta investigación fue orientada por la metodología cuantitativa y se utilizó de métodos estadísticos para inferir las relaciones entre la inteligencia emocional y el rendimiento académico de los alumnos en cada área curricular, a través de datos obtenidos por el test BarOn ICE: NA, y las calificaciones de los alumnos. Los resultados comprobaron la relación existente entre la inteligencia emocional y el desempeño escolar, mostrando que los componentes de la inteligencia emocional varían según el área curricular específica.     In the last twenty years, the Peruvian Ministry of Education has been implementing and accompanying the measurement of learning achievements of students in basic education through large-scale national and international assessments.

The research, in process, on which this article is based, aims to identify how emotional intelligence influences the academic performance of secondary school students in an educational institution in Lima, Peru. This research was guided by the quantitative methodology and was used statistical methods to infer the relationships between emotional intelligence and academic performance of students in each curricular area, through data obtained by the BarOn ICE: NA test, and the qualifications of the students. The results verified the relationship between emotional intelligence and school performance, showing that the components of emotional intelligence vary according to the specific curricular area.

This study investigated the effect of cooperative learning strategy on senior secondary school students’ performance in Mathematics. The study adopted a quasi-experimental research design. The sample for the study consisted of one hundred and forty-four (144) Senior Secondary School two students, selected from Awka Education, Anambra State, Nigeria. The instrument for data collection was Mathematics Performance Test (MPT). The instrument was validated by three experts and had a reliability index of 0.89 obtained through the use of Pearson product moment correlation. Three research questions and three hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. The collected data were analyzed using mean and standard deviation to answer the research questions, while t-test statistics was used to test the null hypotheses at 0.05 alpha levels. The result of the study showed among others that senior secondary school students performed highly when taught Mathematics concepts using cooperative learning instructional strategy; both the male and female students benefitted equally from the cooperative learning strategy. Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended that Mathematics teachers should adopt cooperative learning strategy as an effective learning strategy in order to improve senior secondary school students’ academic performance. Also, school management boards should organize workshops, seminars and conferences to expose teachers and students constantly to the use of the strategy for maximum academic output.

The participation of parents in the performance of their children’ schooling activities play a significant role in the promotion of their school status and performance. The purpose of this paper therefore, was to establish the relationship between parents’ involvement in education activities and learners academic performance in 12Year Basic Education (YBE) schools in Nyarugenge district in Rwanda. The study adopted correlation research design while questionnaire, interview guide and document analysis review were used as data collection instruments. The target population was 1343. The study used simple random and stratified sampling techniques to get the sample size of 308 respondents. The study findings revealed there is a high significant positive relationship between parents’ participation in education activities at school and high score grades with 0.852. The correlation between parents’ participation in education activities was 0.873 and the correlation between parent’s participation in education activities at school and marks in discipline was .949 thus P = 0.000< 0.05. The study recommended that government should consider developing and implementing policies that support parents’ involvement in education activities. Parents should assist their children in doing their homework and set within their families an adequate environment by stimulating instructional activities and also time related to their students to revise their lessons as they also need to be cared for regarding their special needs. School principals have to cooperate with teaching staff and parents to enhance academic performance in their schools. Keywords: Parental involvement to education, learners’ academic performance and 12 years basic education

The goal of the Spiral Progression Approach (SPA) is that the teaching process will lead to boosting cognitive improvement. This study aimed to evaluate SPA in teaching Science and Mathematics students using the modified post-test only design. The first batch of the K-12 program is the treatment group. In contrast, the last batch under the Basic Education Curriculum is the comparison group. The Wilcoxon rank-sum test was used to determine a significant impact on the students' academic performance. Results showed a significant impact in Biology and Chemistry but not in Integrated Science and Physics. There was also a significant impact in Trigonometry and Statistics but not in Elementary Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, and Plane Geometry. However, the student's academic performance remained below satisfactory in Biology, Chemistry, and Trigonometry, and Statistics. Hence, teachers must be experts in their respective fields and undergo rigorous training to improve their strategies and become globally competitive educators.
