As the result of an increasingly challenging economic environment, individuals are facing difficulties in the management of their financial obligations. These difficulties are arguably exacerbated by increasing life expectancies. For younger adults, there is the added financial responsibility of supporting the elderly and the retired, which impacts on their own retirement security prospects. In the face of these challenges, a large proportion of Malaysia’s elderly population do not have the financial means to support themselves. This study aims to assess the impact of financial literacy, potential conflict in retirement planning, attitude and goal clarity on an individual’s retirement preparedness. Placing financial well-being at the centre of policy consideration to ensure working adults are able to sufficiently fund their retirement. The study employs a Partial Least Squares-Structural Equation Modelling estimation technique to analyse a set of data of 200 working adults in Malaysia. Furthermore, the theoretical framework of the present study is grounded in a Life-Cycle Hypothesis (LCH). The results indicate that deviation from the optimal path, as suggested by LCH, can be attributed to variations in the determinants of retirement preparedness. The results demonstrate that financial literacy and goal clarity have a favourable impact on retirement preparedness, while potential conflict in retirement planning and attitude towards retirement are not significant predictors of retirement preparedness. These findings suggest the pervasive role of financial literacy in the financial preparedness of Malaysia’s elderly population and have implications for both, academic theory and policy design.

Most children with special needs in schools that provide inclusive education still experience difficulties with developing social relationships with peers; their social tendencies are often limited to peers who also have special needs. The purpose of this study was to examine the social participation of deaf students at the University of Lambung Mangkurat in Banjarmasin, Indonesia, which included 28 people, of whom 5 were deaf students and 23 were their peers. Social participation was examined through three indicators: friendships or social relationships, classmates’ acceptance, and student perceptions. We used a quantitative approach with a survey for this research. To collect data, we used interviews, questionnaires, and other documentation. The results of the study show that social participation in inclusive settings for deaf students with peers can provide positive benefits. This research has implications for lecturers, for preparing learning management approaches that build student social participation. Pages 25 to 40

Hospital "X" provides class A health service. Its service activities produce positive and negative impacts. One of them is food waste originating from hospitalisation. This research aims to obtain quantitative potential of food waste that contains carbohydrate starch (rice waste) and its utilisation. The method used is Absolute Deviations and then analysed using SEM. The results obtained from the arising of rice waste amounted to 36.25% or 0.29 kg per patient per day, and as a comparison of inpatients dispose of food waste an average of 953 grams per day in Portuguese hospitals (Dias-Ferreira, Santos and Oliveira, 2015) and food served to inpatients in hospitals, amounting to 41.6% wasted not utilised (Schiavone, Pelullo and Attena, 2019).

The Roles of International Regimes in Controlling an Environmental Crisis: A Critical Evaluation

Sugeng Riyantoa, Budi Winarnob, a,bDepartment of International Relations, Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta Indonesia, Email: ariyanto_sugeng@yahoo.com,  bbudiwinarno1947@gmail.com

Global warming and climate change are not more than an environmental crisis in the era of neoliberal globalisation. This has been a global issue, and at the same time, it has been gradually becoming a global threat of human security. The unity of the developed and the emerging countries is needed in order to strengthen international regime controlling this threat of environmental crisis.  In addition, a strong awareness of the world communities is also crucial  to put more pressure on the developed industrial and emerging countries to reduce their consumption of fossil based energies in one side, and in the other side, to bring international regime to have greater capacity and, therefore its roles are going to be more effective in controlling an environmental crisis. Without a common action among  the leaders of the developed industrial and emerging countries, and  together with a strong global awareness among world-wide communities, sooner or later, the environmental crisis, which has indeed been ongoing, is destroying our planet Earth.

In implementing a regional autonomy, funding sourced from the Local Own-Source Revenue (PAD) is needed. One source of PAD comes from motorised vehicle tax. Motorised vehicle tax is a tax on ownership and/or control of motorised vehicles. So far, this tax has not been optimal in receipt, and there is an indication of non-compliance of taxpayers in paying taxes. Persuasive efforts are still being carried out by the government so that the public grows their awareness in paying taxes, and it is suspected that tax service factors, taxpayers’ awareness, and illegal levies are factors causing compliance of the taxpayer in paying motorised vehicle tax. The research method used was quantitative research. In this study, the type and source of data used was secondary data published by certain agencies and primary data which were a sample of 120 taxpayers from two regions, Bengkalis and Siak. The analytical tool used was Multiple Linear Regression (MLR). The results showed it was proven that the variables of taxation services, taxpayers’ awareness, and illegal levies simultaneously had a significant effect on taxpayer compliance in paying motorised vehicle tax. Some people still do not understand tax payment procedures. Thus, they often postponed the payments. The delay also occurred because the work days of workers from communities around the location of the oil palm plantations were from Monday to Friday so they did not have time to make payments. The results of the study also found awareness and illegal levies were also factors in the decline in compliance. The recommendation of this study is the Government provides payment counters on Saturdays and Sundays in the plantation area by placing Mobil Samsat Keliling (service given by using a car as payment counters). Then, attaching the procedure of tax payments and its requirments on the sheet of Vehicle Registration Certificate (STNK) or motorised vehicle tax (PKB) of each owner of a two-wheeled motorised vehicle when buying the motorised vehicle or when paying the tax. It will encourage the compliance of taxpayers of plantation sector in paying motorised vehicle tax, and it later can increase Local Own-Source Revenue (PAD) of the Riau Province. Pages 85 to 104

Currently Vietnam has 235 universities. Among those, there are 170 public universities, 60 private universities and 5 foreign-owned universities. All Vietnamese universities must follow the Vietnamese law of higher education, supervised and inspected by the Ministry of Education and Training; nevertheless, the 170 public universities are not necessary under this ministry but can be under different ministries or equivalent ones. Around ten years ago, many provinces in Vietnam established universities under themselves, of course public ones, so-called provincial universities. The Mekong Delta in Vietnam plays an important role in the development of the country, and some provinces in this area have provincial universities under themselves. However, the quality of these universities is questionable, while the unemployment of university graduates has recently been very concerned. This paper was to investigate the performance of provincial universities in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam. The study showed that key indicators of provincial universities in this area were considerably low. Then suitable solutions for such weaknesses were proposed to make these provincial universities in the mentioned area more developed. Pages 105 to 120

Organizations are heavily dependent on the job performance of their employees because their optimal performance causes organizational success or failure. Working conditions are changing rapidly. Therefore, the current study has examined the role of different sources of stress in job performance of employees. Life and work stress have been considered for the study. In addition the role of personality has also been considered as a potential moderator between the relationships of variables. Data were collected from the employees working in Indonesian banks. A questionnaire was used to collect data and was analyzed by using Smart-PLS software. Results of the study revealed that life related stress is negatively related with job performance. The relationship is significant and valued at -0.238. While work related stress was found to be associated with job performance which is valued at 0.343. The relationship is significant and the direction positive which means that employees tend to work better under stressful work settings. In addition to this the moderation results were also significant. The majority of the study hypotheses were accepted in light of the results. Overall the study makes a significant contribution to the available literature. Further, the study also provides some future avenues for research which are presented in the discussion and limitations section. Pages 135 to 152

The financial performance of any firm depends on various factors. The present study illustrates the relationship of differentiation strategy, business strategy and strategic change on the financial performance of firms and the mediating role of enterprise risk management. The main objective of the paper is to analyze the impact of these strategies as well as the mediating role of ERM. The complete paper consists of different sections including introduction, literature, methodology, framework, analysis of results and finally a conclusion. The numerous previous studies analyzed the impact of strategies on the financial output of firms. These studies proved that firm financial performance significantly depends on strategy formulation and implementation.  The quantitative data collection technique has been used in this study and data was collected through a structured questionnaire. The questionnaire was distributed among 400 respondents and 319 valid responses were used for analysis. Furthermore, the data was analyzed through performing SPSS and AMOS software. AMOS has been accompanied by a researcher for analyzing the convergent validity of the data. The results of the analysis show that all variables do not have a significant impact on financial performance. The strategic change and business strategy have a significant impact on financial performance while the differentiation strategy does not have a significant impact on the financial output of the companies. The strategic change and business strategies do not only have a significant impact but also a positive impact on financial performance. This shows that business strategy and strategic change are important for organizational financial performance. Pages 172 to 190

The present study attempts to analyse the role of Brand Prominence, Self-Connection and Authenticity in determining customer loyalty in the automotive industry of Indonesia through the mediating role of online trust. The primary data has been collected from the sample size of 314. To examine the impact of incorporated variables on customer loyalty, Confirmatory factors analysis and Structural equation modelling approach are incorporated in the study; several tests were applied including descriptive analysis, KMO and Bartlett’s test, rotated component matrix, convergent and discriminant validity. The results show significant differences in direct and indirect effects. The direct effects indicated that brand authenticity and brand self-connection are the significant and positive drivers of customer loyalty, while no significant statistical association was found between brand prominence and customer loyalty. Contrary, the indirect effects show that online trust significantly mediated the relationship between brand prominence and customer loyalty. Also, it acts as a significant mediator between brand authenticity and customer loyalty. Contrary, no mediation of online trust is observed in the relationship between brand self-connection and customer loyalty. Also, the study embraces several theoretical, practical and policy-making implications for the marketing management practitioners and strategy developers to attain high levels of customer loyalty. In the last, various limitations have been given along with the recommendations for in-depth findings by future researchers. Pages 191 to 209

Background: The adolescent population in Indonesia is almost 30% of the total Indonesian population. This number is quite large and has the potential to become an asset if  appropriately managed. At present, there is more and more risk of behavioural problems. This can be known from the number of news, cases, morbidity, and mortality due to risky behaviour such as high cases of HIV in adolescence, even the number of abortions is also mostly done by adolescents because of premarital sex and unwanted pregnancy. Therefore many sectors carry out adolescent health programs to improve adolescent health status. Health promotion media is one of the strategies in influencing program success. This study aims to identify the power, interests, and attitudes of various stakeholders in developing adolescent health promotion media. Methods: The research is a qualitative descriptive study through in-depth interviews and FGD. The total respondents involved were 22 people from various stakeholders involved in the development of adolescent health promotion media. Stakeholders involved from the government (health, education, religion, social, national narcotics institution), NGOs, media, parent representatives, and stakeholder providers (teachers from 10 high schools from 5 regions in Surabaya). Then the data were analyzed through thematic analysis approach. Results: Not all stakeholders have strong power, a positive attitude and active interest in developing adolescent health promotion media. Only 2 stakeholders (the health sector and NGOs) have the category of "saviour" because these stakeholders have a health program. Many stakeholders should be involved, but in reality, they still tend to overlap and some stakeholders even say that it is not important to have adolescent health promotion media. Stakeholder providers tend to have weak power and passive interest because adolescent health promotion media are usually given directly from stakeholder decision-makers. Conclusions: The development of adolescent health promotion media is the responsibility of various stakeholders who have programs with adolescents as the target groups. Adolescent health is a comprehensive health status from physical, mental, social, economic and spiritual. Therefore not only the health sector is responsible, but all sectors from various groups (decision-maker, provider, user, and representative). Synergy efforts through role optimization are one of the success strategies in developing adolescent health promotion media. Pages 287 to 299




Structuration in Religious Education: The Ideological Burdens of Islamic Education in Indonesian Schools

Mujiburrahmana, Irwan Abdullahb, Samsudinc, Muslim Zaenuddind, Hasnul Arifine, Sabirinf, a,d,eAr-Raniry State Islamic University, Banda Aceh, Indonesia, bGadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta, Indonesia, cInstitut Agama Islam Negeri (IAIN), Bengkulu, Indonesia,

This paper discusses one of the central issues of religious education in Indonesia, namely its perceived ineffectiveness in imbuing adolescents and youths with proper morals, as seen in their increase perpetration of crimes in recent years. Unlike previous studies, which have evaluated the effectiveness of religious education in terms of curricula, teaching competencies, and infrastructure, this study highlights the structural positioning of schools as the main reason for their inability to realise their mandate. Being extensions of the Indonesian State or of particular organisations, schools serve to advance particular ideologies, and as such lack to authority to develop a contextual religious education curriculum that meets students' needs. This study shows that, when positioned subordinately, schools are incapable of identifying students' interests or of providing contextual lessons that meet students' needs or prepare them for their everyday realities. The education system has positioned students as objects, and it is because of this objectification—through the dual processes of discipline and indoctrination—that the system has failed to produce moral graduates. Islamic education would be better able to imbue students with morality if its curricula were free of State/institutional ideologies. Pages 300 to 316

A firm’s value is one indicator which  measures the firm as a whole. The  firm’s value is a point of  attraction for investors, and if the value is high then the market will be more confident in its performance and can guarantee the sustainability of shareholders' interests. The proposal of this research is to analyse those factors that affect a firm’s  value . This research incorporates an  Independent Corporate Social Responsibility variable that can be measured by a Corporate Social Responsibility Index (CSRI) indicator, according to which the size of the firm is calculated by SIZE, dividend policy is measured by using the Dividend Payout Ratio (DPR),  liquidity is measured by using the Current Ratio, and the dependent variable of the firm's value is measured by TOBIN'S Q. In this research, the author incorporates  30 manufacturing companies that are found in the Indonesian Stock Exchange between 2016 and2018 . The result  shows that the size of companies and the dividend policy  significantly influence the firm’s value . Thus , Corporate Social Responsibility and liquidity do not have any significant influence on firm value . Pages 325 to 338

Reading can be considered an important skill as it extends the knowledge that learners need to learn a language. As a cognitive process, comprehension requires learners to create mental illustrations through active understanding within the content of the reading texts. Iraqi EFL intermediate learners face many difficulties in comprehending reading texts, therefore teachers need to demonstrate new active strategies in teaching reading. Thus, an experimental study was conducted. The study purpose was to detect the impact of using cubing strategy in teaching Iraqi EFL intermediate learners’ reading comprehension and evaluate to what extent it affects their attitude toward reading. The sample of the present study was distributed into two separate groups: experimental and control, with thirty learners for each category . The control group learners were tutored reading according to the prescribed method followed in the classroom, whereas learners in the experimental group were tutored according to the cubing strategy suggested. The study hypotheses state that the learners’ mean scores were not significantly different  in the reading comprehension post-test and reading attitude questionnaire post-administration for the two groups. Depending on the final results, it is concluded that teaching reading through the use of cubing strategy  has a prominent role in improving Iraqi EFL intermediate learners’ reading comprehension and attitude towards reading.

Health is one of the human rights that needs to be protected and receive serious attention from the Government. In the fifth precept of Pancasila, namely social justice for all Indonesians, clearly underlines  that the Government must be able to ensure health services for its citizens fairly in gaining access to quality health.  Many citizens complain of  discrimination and injustice in its implementation. Citizens feel that their rights including health rights do not get sufficient attention from the Government, complaints about the quality of health services as low and the vulnerable position of patients, especially those who are poor or disabled   mean that justice for citizens is   far from expectations. This study examines the concept of human rights protection for the rights of patients in obtaining health services and aims to find out how the concept of human rights protection can create positive laws and the concept of human rights protection for patient rights in obtaining health services. The method used in this study is normative empirical, that is legal research which examines  the phenomenon  of the operation of law in the community, how the implementation of positive legal provisions in action that occur in the community relate to human rights and patient rights in obtaining health services . The research is  descriptive. Secondary data is used consisting of primary  and secondary legal materials. The research approach is qualitative using the socio-legal research method, and looks at the legal concept as well as the implementation of patient rights in obtaining health services in relation to social, cultural, economic and political dynamics. The results of the discussion show that health is a fundamental human right for every human being in order to be able to live properly, productively and   improve his or her standard of living. Therefore, the Government must be responsible for meeting the health r needs of its citizens. Efforts to obtain  quality health services becomes a priority  for all patients, especially  the poor . The concept of  human rights protection for patients' rights in obtaining health care health services,  amongst them patients must include obtaining clear information about the health services they receive. Co-operation is also needed between patients,  doctors and health workers to be able to create  quality health services. Pages 381 to 393

This study aims to determine differences in the ability to solve citizenship problems in students who have different backgrounds in their majors and in their achievement motivation. It also aims to investigate the interaction between a student’s major and their achievement motivation, specifically determining whether it affects their ability to solve citizenship problems. The design of this study was to use a non-experimental causal-comparative research design. The research sample consisted of 74 students:  20 students from the Mathematics department, 18 students majoring in Chemistry, 19 students majoring in Physics and 17 students majoring in Engineering. Determination of the sample was done by a purposive sampling technique. Data collection was done by tests and use of a Likert scale. Data analysis used Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) 2x2 factorial design. The results of this study point to; 1) There is no difference in the ability to solve national citizenship problems in students majoring in Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Engineering; 2) There are differences in the ability to solve citizenship problems in students majoring in Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Engineering who have low and high achievement motivation, as is evident by the significance value being smaller than the real level (0,000 <0.050). 3) There is no interaction between differences in their major and the student’s motivation on their ability to solve civic problems. This study shows that the ability to solve citizenship problems in Engineering majors and other natural science majors is not different, and as such it is possible to teach the ability  with the same learning methods, and specifically the same problem-solving learning model. Students who have high achievement motivation have better problem-solving abilities, therefore teachers should encourage collaborative learning so that students collaborate in problem solving.

Moh. Fadlia, Diah Pawestri Maharanib, Airin Liemantoc, a,b,cFaculty of Law Universitas Brawijaya, Email: amfadlifhub@gmail.com,  bacademictraveler@gmail.com,  cairin.liem999@gmail.com

MOOCs are one of the disruptive innovation phenomena capable of destroying conventional education methods. The aim of this research is to offer solutions regarding ashift in the educational paradigm and the formulation of an anticipatory policy towards the the transformation of disruptive innovation into sustaining innovation. The results of this study indicate that MOOCs have become an alternative means of improving the quality and equity of education. The education paradigm in Indonesia is currently undergoing a transition process. The old education paradigm, which focusses on the role of lecturers conducted in the classroom, has slowly shifted into a learning process that no longer requires face-to-face meetings in the classroom. The Indonesian Government has issued several laws and regulations in regulating the Indonesian Online Learning System. However, this policy still needs a lot of improvements to develop MOOCS from disruptive innovation into sustaining innovation. This namely involves determining a new direction of the paradigm of MOOCs regulation in Indonesia, improving cooperation among stakeholders, improving infrastructure for supporting the MOOCs system, and improving the culture of digital literacy.

The prime objective of the current study is the exploration of links amongst career management policy, career development, career information, employee satisfaction, job security and job performance.  In addition, the study has examined the mediating role of employee satisfaction in the relationship between career management policy and job performance, between career development and job performance, and between career information and job performance. Lastly, the moderating role of job security in the relationship between employee satisfaction and job performance was examined. The study offers a perspective that explains the relation between job satisfaction and the level of happiness of employees. Employee happiness levels are also measured by job satisfaction, which fulfils the employee’s needs and desires at the workplace. Happiness levels correlate with employee efforts to attain their needs and desires. The intangible variable can be observed and expressed through the emotional feelings; job satisfaction is one of the intangible variables. If the job meets acceptable physiological as well as psychological needs, the level of job satisfaction increases. The current study has filled this gap. However, this study is among the pioneering studies on this issue. Employing the survey-based methodology; the SEM-PLS technique was used to test the hypothesised relationships. So, the current study has used SEM-PLS as a statistical tool to answer the research questions raised in this study and research objectives envisaged in the current study. Private school teachers in Indonesia were given surveys to collect the data of the study. The findings of the study have provided support for the theoretical foundation and the proposed hypothesis of the current study. The current study will be helpful for policymakers and practitioners in understanding the issues related to career management policy, career development, career information, employee satisfaction, job security and job performance. To the author’s knowledge, this is among very few pioneering studies on this issue. Pages 458 to 482

The aim of this article is to  analyse equity mutual fund’s daily performance-persistence. In addition, this research-work also provides current and previous literature on equity mutual fund analysis. This study attempts to calculate the daily performance of equity mutual fund from 2011 until 2015 using the risk-adjusted performance measures, such as Sharpe ratio, Treynor ratio and Jensen Alpha ratio. The Spearman’s rho correlation is used as the parameter to evaluate the relationship between product performances on a yearly and semiannually period. The quantitative results revealed that out of the 56 equity funds studied, Indonesia equity funds are not persistent on the yearly period. Besides, it is considered as partial persistence on semiannually period but with no pattern. Therefore, it can be seen that there is no persistence occurred in Indonesia equity funds. However, negative persistence is found in Thailand equity funds for both yearly and semiannually period. Pages 516 to 534

Social media has generated a huge buzz in today’s world. At present, internet users spend more 4.5 hours per week on social networking sites globally. This indicates how people interact and connect with each other to share their ideas, and engage with products, brands and organizations. It is generally only popular among younger generations who get touched by the trend of social media not so much the middle-aged and the older generation. Initially, the purpose of using social media was socializing whereby the user was able to connect with their friends and relatives. Later on, it developed widely as the tool of professional marketing to increase brand awareness among consumers as this was relatively cost effective. The world of digital communication creates many ways to promote the product consciousness and with the support of social media, it becomes one of the fastest ways to reach consumer’s knowledge since consumers are nearly always connected and contributing to a variety of online events. In addition, social media has become a dominant online platform of consumer knowledge of their online shopping activities. The reason behind this research is to observe the influences of social media network on consumers’ purchasing choices through available social commerce in Indonesia. Pages 727 to 747

The growth, development and increasing frequency of the use of popular music genres in various social cultural activities of the Simalungun community in the Raya District, Purba District, and Silima Kuta District have narrowed the space and continuity of local vocal music traditions that are rich in local wisdom and constitute the identity of the Simalungun community in North Sumatra. This condition is caused by the low musical energy provided by the community towards their local vocal music traditions. This research is descriptive-comparative and by applying ethno musicological and ethno history approaches, this paper will first, map and document local vocal music traditions that still exist in the Simalungun community; next, will examine what factors are causing the change and continuity of the vocal music tradition. The results of this study indicate that the poor effort of inheriting vocal music traditions in the community and the narrowing of the 'space' of the context of use and changes in community musical behaviour as a consequence of the popular culture development, information technology, education, economics and politics in the midst of Simalungun society, are the main factors of becoming the agent of change as well as a threat in the continuation of the local vocal music tradition of the Simalungun community.

Asri Sundaria*, Sunarti Mustamarb, a,bFaculty of Humanities, University of Jember, Email: a*asri.sundari175@gmail.com

Ritual is an integral form of Javanese society and has resulted in the change of different understanding about the rituals of children participating in symbolic meaning. The changes can be seen in the flow of urbanisation and religion which can submerge a system; then it causes clashes in the traditional (rural) society that considers symbols in Ruwatan children has meaning,  values, norms. While the modern (urban) society considers the symbols in children's Ruwatan has meaningless or no values. Pages 767 to 787

Background: Handwashing by health professionals is often associated with efforts to prevent cross-infection in hospitals. The handwashing compliance of health professionals is still below 40%. This is very risky, causing nosocomial infections in visiting patients. Incidences of phlebitis in infusion is one indicator that must be considered when addressing infection prevention and reaching control targets with indicators below 1.5 per mile. Methods: This study uses a quantitative analytical approach, aiming to analyse the relationship between the effectiveness of implementing health professional handwashing training with incidences of phlebitis in hospitals. Compliance with handwashing behaviour of health professionals was observed by auditing the quality of handwashing through the Five Moments and Six Steps protocol, carried out by the Infection Prevention Control Nurse (IPCN), which consisted of doctors (n = 30) and nurses (n = 70). Incidences of phlebitis were measured through daily recordings and monitoring by the Infection Prevention Control Link Nurse (IPCLN) in four rooms. The results were validated by the IPCN and the hospital's control and prevention committee. Data analysis used SEM WarpPLS. Results: There is a significant relationship between nurses not handwashing and incidences of phlebitis, with p value: 0.007 (highly significant), obtaining an R-square determinant or R² = 0.19, meaning that 19% of nurses, who are ineffectively handwashing, are at risk of causing phlebitis. There is no relationship between doctors’ handwashing with incidences of phlebitis, with the p value: 0.416 (not significant). Conclusion: There is a significant relationship between the implementation of the Five Moments, Six Steps protocol for nurses and incidences of phlebitis. Pages 788 to 798

The purpose of this study was to analyse a set of questions in geometry lessons using performance assessment through the Rasch Many-Facet Measurement Model approach. The data was collected from 250 junior high school students using 3 raters. Performance instruments in the form of rubrics are used to assess the process of students working on problems, and each question has a different rubric. The Rasch Many facet Measurement Model (MFRM) is used to analyse data to see three aspects namely facet person, rater agreement and domain difficulty. The results show that an appropriate index measures the high feasibility and low feasibility of the facet person in terms of number one through number five having a good enough item validity value and high reliability. The high feasibility and construct value following the MFRM shows that this measurement model can measure the accuracy of the scores for each facet. Pages 799 to 821
