Should Multiple-Choice Questions Be Eliminated?

It is often debated whether multiple-choice questions should be removed from the scoring system. The main reason is that it is feared that it could make students less critical and less able to apply knowledge in depth. The following is a deeper explanation regarding using multiple-choice questions as an assessment design.

Multiple-choice as an option to carry out practical assessments

In assessment design,  not only we must ensure validity, reliability, and beneficial consequences but we also must consider practicality. Practicality in this case includes efficiency, ease of administration, and time savings that can be achieved using multiple choice questions. Multiple choice questions allow for assessment in classes with large numbers of students to be faster and more efficient than other assessment methods, such as essays, projects, or reflections.

Encourages students’ analytical thinking

The idea that multiple-choice questions make students lazy and not think critically is wrong. In assessment design, the difficulty level in multiple-choice questions can be adjusted from an easy level to a difficult one. Especially in language education, the difficulty level can be adjusted from surface-level understanding to application, analysis, and evaluation (C1 to C5). Well-designed multiple-choice questions will encourage students to analyze answer options and encourage critical thinking to choose the most appropriate answer.

We need to change our mindset to not only see the bad side of a type of assessment but also its potential. Even though learning preferences in schools are now output/project/differentiated based, multiple choice will still be a useful tool for teachers. We need to find a balance between open and closed assessment because after all a good teacher is a teacher who can adapt their learning and assessment according to the conditions and needs of the students.

Rinjani Mountain: A Dazzling Screen in Small Island

Written by Youme Hanesfu Noor 

Edited by Ninik Tri Astutik

Where is Rinjani mountain located? 

A trip to Rinjani mountain tourist attractions takes about three or four hours from Lombok International Airport. You can depart from the airport then will pass through the Jelojok market in Kopang, Central Lombok then proceed to North Lombok where Rinjani is located. Rinjani Mountain is a famous place in Lombok where it has become a place for climbing tours coming from all over the country year to year. Rinjani has been famous for its height reaching 3.726 meters making it the 5th highest mountain in Indonesia. Rinjani has a beautiful and amazing way, a huge water dam and a unique milk cave. The landscapes are full of steep cliffs, valleys and small rivers that come from mountain sulfur water. To reach Rinjani’s peak, you can go through the Sembalun route where its route is full of downhill. You will hardly find spring but it is easy to find people who sell food. Another way you can cross is through the Torean route also known as the heaven route because there are plenty of forests and valleys along the way. You will probably witness many monkeys climbing trees and every mountain way with a handful of bread and fruits given by people.

Why should we go to Rinjani mountain?

Rinjani is a heavenly place. There are famous landmarks because of their uniqueness such as Segara Anak and Susu Cave. Segara Anak is a huge water dam that has been a legendary story of the beauty of Mount Rinjani. With clear water, the huge water dam can be used for taking a bath or even drinking water. Don’t feel bad when the food stock runs out because people usually do fishing or prepare bait for catching fish. On the journey to the peak, many people probably don’t know there is a place called Susu Cave where ‘susu’ refers to the word ‘milk’. This place is a rest area to whoever returned from the peak. This is also famous as a place of ‘medication’ due to local residents’ belief that when people who bathe are like being reborn in other worlds and erased their committed sins.

What should we know about Rinjani Mountain? 

The top of Rinjani is not the only beauty we will see. Have you ever known that Rinjani Mountain has a place called the Pelawangan Gate? The older adults still believe in the custom that they must pray when going through the Pelawangan Gate. They said that they should pray for God’s protection when climbing the mountain because it is known that we entered a different realm. You may not believe it, just so that you know. 

What things do we need to be aware of? 

For people who are interested in visiting Rinjani, they need to prepare several important things before getting there. Beginners usually don’t know when to start. First, they need to be aware of their physical condition. This may sound trivial yet in fact, this is an important thing to not be underestimated. Second, you have to prepare items such as clothes, medicines, food and other personal equipment you may need. Another important thing is the weather, it’s a very cold and foggy place during the day and slippery at night especially in the rainy season. The temperature reaching 12 degrees celsius means that you need to prepare a thick coat, jacket,  blanket, and mantel to keep yourself warm. If you plan to climb at night, a flashlight is a must to see every track in the journey. One thing you need to know is you need to stick as a crutch in every step when you climb uphill and downhill areas. For that, you need shoes as well as hats to protect yourself. The shoes will protect your feet from dangerous objects and other factors, meanwhile hats will protect you from direct sunlight.


Thus, every year tourists come to Rinjani Mountain to enjoy nature and capture breath-taking pictures. SO ARE YOU. Invite your friends to come to Lombok and climb the Rinjani Mountain. Don’t worry if you are alone because you can have road guides to get you into the journey. Enjoy every trip and keep safe so that you reach your destination with natural beauty. Let’s together see the beauty of the mountain which brings an extraordinary experience and the moment that can’t be forgotten.

Buying Interest in Korean Beauty Products in Indonesia

Written by Sekar Luhur Widjayanti

Edited by Chintya Arlita 

The cosmetics sector in Indonesia is witnessing continuous expansion year after year. The rapid growth of the cosmetics industry is directly linked to the increasing demand for beauty products. Beauty products have transitioned from being mere aspirational items to becoming essential commodities. The increase in the cosmetic sector in Indonesia is attributable to imported cosmetics rather than domestic cosmetics. Indonesian customers prefer global cosmetic items to local products, particularly those from South Korea. Companies have implemented various strategies to bolster consumer interest, including leveraging electronic word of mouth, refining brand image, and enlisting celebrity endorsers.

A consumer’s perception or comprehension of a product brand is portrayed in their memory through brand associations. Consumers utilize the brand image as a guide or reference when trying and using a product. Consumers with prior product experience are more likely to select well-known products or brands. Consumers believe a famous brand is trustworthy, high-quality, and easy to obtain. The indicators used to measure brand image factors include strength, distinctiveness, and favorability. In addition to brand image, firms employ various methods to stimulate consumer purchasing interest, such as using well-known celebrities to promote their products. The celebrity endorser who promotes it has a more substantial influence on consumer purchasing interest since celebrities are famous and the center of attention.

Lastly, electronic word of mouth refers to the positive or negative opinions about a product shared by consumers on the internet based on their usage experience. The findings derived from analyzing various dimensions of electronic word of mouth – namely intensity, sentiment, and content – lead to the conclusion that electronic word of mouth significantly impacts an individual’s online product choices. This information holds great relevance to a person’s decision-making process. The existence of recommendations or reviews given by other consumers can influence consumer purchasing decisions. In addition, security and services for online transactions can influence consumers to purchase using the e-commerce application. The existence of electronic word of mouth will help the parties involved in it, from e-commerce developers and sellers to buyers.

Expanding Horizons through Teaching Practice Overseas


After extended periods of canceled and postponed PBI UII’s programs due to COVID-19 restrictions, it is a relief that the programs are finally continued after there are no COVID-19 restrictions. PBI UII still withstands its programs; one of them is “International Teaching Practice” as a commitment to supporting the students’ professional development to become educators at the international level.

In 2023, PBI UII sends off 15 students to Australia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Philippines. They will be deployed in schools or universities to have teaching practice. Students fully prepared throughout the deployment get training from remarkable trainers aligned with their program placement.

Indra Waskita, one of the ITP 2023 awardees, expressed his gratitude for snatching the opportunity to teach in Thailand, “Alhamdulillah, I was extremely happy and thrilled when I was selected as one of the delegates to go abroad to teach.” He made tremendous efforts to ensure he could snatch the opportunity, “I was occupied with several trainings for a competition, so I had to manage my time wisely for both the Indonesian Drum Corps Association (IDCA) competition and the International Teaching Practice program.”

Additionally, PBI UII held several trainings to support the delegates’ teaching practice in their respective countries. For Indra, who is familiar with the Thailand language because he learned about it during the lockdown due to the pandemic, gained several insights from the workshop on Thailand Language, “I found new perspectives from Miss Satwika, our trainer of Thai Language Survival Workshop. She taught the Thai script with the Latin alphabet, which is different from my experience; I previously studied it with the Thai alphabet.” The workshop was held twice and lasted two hours respectively on different days. However, the training was conducted hybrid because Miss Satwika lived in Thailand, Indra, including the participants, had a great time learning about Thailand, especially when Miss Satwika asked them to speak in Thailand.

There has been a transformation in the program’s deployment from the past to the present. Previously, PBI UII only sent students to Australia, Thailand, and the Philippines. Now, PBI UII can send more students, and new countries have been added to the list, namely Vietnam and Malaysia. The vision to provide international exposure has grown stronger within PBI UII, as a global perspective is considered crucial for educators. PBI UII hopes to support students’ future endeavors through the establishment and continued pursuit of International Teaching Practice, enabling them to become future educators who will lead the way with open minds and hearts.

Uang Panai: Makassar’s Enduring Tradition of Respect and Love Toward Women

Written by Bulan Indah Armalia

Edited by Ninik Tri Astutik 

Have you ever believed that humans bought humans?‘. Here is another unique culture coming from Makassar, South Sulawesi. This province has a unique cultural tradition known as Uang Panai. Uang Panai is a compulsory dowry from the groom or groom’s family to the bride’s family. The bride’s family receives customary presents as a symbol of respect for letting their daughter marry into the family. The Uang Panai or Panaik has been rooted and passed down in Makassar and Buginess culture from the prior generation. The amount of Uang Panai is typically discussed between two families and varies depending on its aspects. It includes the family’s social background and the bride and groom’s education level.

Women are deeply valued and respected in Makassar culture. The Panaik custom is a method of honoring a woman’s status in society and gratitude for the bride’s family to raise and educate the bride’s daughter. It is also a sign of the seriousness of the groom to get a woman he loves. The groom’s family must first seek permission from the bride’s family to propose and marry their daughter. Once the approval is granted, the two families will negotiate and agree on the given amount of the Panaik money. 

Generally, the Uang Panai ritual occurs a few weeks before the wedding. The first stage of the processions is Mappese-pese. A man will appoint a family representative to visit the bride’s family to propose to his chosen woman. Madutta or Massuro, the groom’s representative family, comes to negotiate the nominal amount of Panaik with the bride’s family. Mappenre, the groom’s family visit and bring the agreed-upon Panaik money to the bride’s family. After completing the previous stage, it is time to determine which good day to hold the reception party, Mappettu.  

Throughout the years, the custom evolved, and some families have begun to include modern items like electronics and home appliances along with their Panaik money. This custom provides gold, silver, jewelry, textiles, or other valuable items. The Uang Panai ritual is more than simply a formality. It also symbolizes the symbiotic relationship of two families to come together and deepen their bonds during the time. In conclusion, the Uang Panai tradition is a unique cultural practice in the Makassar community and reflects the values or beliefs of its community. This tradition has stood the test of time and remains an essential aspect of the Makassar culture as part of Indonesia.

Exploring Yogyakarta’s Rich History: A Journey through Vredeburg Fort Museum

Photo via Wikipedia

Written by Amelia Putri

Edited by Ninik Tri Astutik


Do you know there is a very famous museum in Yogyakarta? If we cross Jalan Malioboro, along this road up to zero kilometers, we will find commercial and colonial buildings, including Vredeburg Fort Museum. Have you heard about this building? It’s your sign to come to this Museum if you haven’t. But how do we go to the Museum? To get to the Vredeburg Museum, we can use public or private transportation, and you can freely choose which one you prefer. One public transportation we can use in Yogyakarta is Trans Jogja. Then, what is Trans Jogja?

Trans Jogja is a public transportation widely used by Jogja people, from young to adults. Trans Jogja runs daily from 05:30 to 21:30, except on special days when the operating hours’ change. With these hours of operation, it will be easier for the local community to use the Trans Jogja. First, you can wait at the bus stop near your house. The bus will stop every ten minutes. Second, you have to buy a ticket that costs around Rp. 3,600, and Rp. 2,700 when you’re on a subscription. Along the way up to the Museum, you will stop at the Malioboro bus stop. Arriving at the Museum, you pay Rp. 3,000 for the entrance tickets and you can see everything in the Museum. Then, what is Museum Vredeburg? And what will you see in this Museum? 

Vredeburg Fort Museum is one of the buildings that has become a silent witness to historical events in Yogyakarta since the Dutch colonial arrived in Yogyakarta. The Vredeburg Fort Museum has four diorama rooms. Diorama 1 consists of 11 mini-ramas depicting events from the time of Prince Diponegoro to the Japanese occupation of Yogyakarta. Diorama 2 consists of 19 mini-ramas depicting the historical events of Proclamation Day from the Dutch Military Aggression in Indonesia. Diorama 3 consists of 18 mini-ramas depicting events from the Renville Agreement to the recognition of the sovereignty of the United States of Indonesia. Diorama 4 consists of 7 mini-ramas that depict historical events from the period of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia to the New Order period. 

When I visited the Museum, one room caught my attention: the digital diorama. The diorama was displayed with a projector and explained about “Serangan Umum 1 Maret.” This immersive experience made me understand better and appreciate the value of Yogyakarta’s history. A visit to the Vredeburg Fort Museum truly enriches the passage of time and offers a deeper understanding of the historical events that shaped this city. 

For this reason, the Vredeburg Fort Museum is a must-visit destination for a glimpse into the historical events in Yogyakarta. With four diorama rooms, the Museum beautifully presents key moments to enhance our self-awareness of the Special Region of Yogyakarta. A visit to this famous Museum is a journey that will make visitors feel the deep historical significance of this region.

A Queen of Diplomacy Against Patriarchy: Ratu Kalinyamat

Written by Kayla Artamevia Putri

Edited by Ninik Tri Astutik


Today is a free day at Hyde Park. There are plenty of activities people usually do. Instead, people listen to bird songs, watch the ducks walking into the lake, parents play with their kids in the playground, and I am laying down on the grass under the tree, reading the book I bought two days ago. I am also waiting for my friend, who is busy queuing for vanilla ice cream among a group of children at the ice cream stall. 

Instead of focusing on the book, I open Twitter on my phone and read the latest issue about patriarchy and gender equality that is controversial in Indonesia. I immediately thought about how patriarchal culture still exists around me, even in my family. 

“Hey! I thought you were reading your book tho, no?” said Ban. 

Banyu Mahajana, my Indonesian best mate. He is studying and attending the same Uni with me in London. Back to the topic, he finally came back complete with the two ice creams in his two hands after patiently waiting in the ice cream stall. 

“I did, but I chose to read this hot issue in Indonesia. You know FOMO is my middle name. Thank you for the ice cream, by the way!” I said. 

“What kind of hot issue again, now? Mim, please stop reading the endless issue on Indonesia’s Twitter trending!” said Ban with a laugh and continued eating his ice cream. 

“It’s about the patriarchy issue, Ban. There is a group of women who share the knowledge about patriarchy and gender equality, then some freak men on Twitter said that it was not even a big deal and women are supposed to be under man, though.” 

“Oh I see, I almost forgot that some Indonesian people are still dealing with those kinds of issues.”

“I don’t know how Ibu Kartini would feel if she knew about this. She fought about women’s rights, but now there are still men who think that it is not a big deal, huh?” Ban answered. 

“I know in Islam, the position of women is under the men, but the way that people see this is like they only think about the benefit of themselves, not about the women who are always being the victim,” repeated Ban. 

“Talking about Ibu Kartini, do you know Ban, there was a woman like Kartini and she was a Queen in Jepara, her name is Ratu Kalinyamat.” I said. 

“Oh, really? I haven’t heard about her.” said Ban curiously. 

“She was a Queen of Jepara, she was known to be very assertive, brave and she broke all assumptions about women leaders. But do you know what, even though she is a Queen and the leader of the navy, she is still submissive and respectful to her husband like what Al-Quran said!”

After her husband died, Ratu Kalinyamat became the ruler of Jepara. In the 16th century, she brought Jepara to glory. Her nickname was written in the history notebook of Diego do Couto, a historian from Portugal and said, “Rainha de Japara, senhora poderosa e rica, de kranige Dame.” which means queen of Jepara, a powerful and wealthy woman, a woman of courage. Ratu Kalinyamat developed various strategies in various sectors (economic, social, political, and defense) and established diplomatic relations with multiple kingdoms in Nusantara. Moreover, she also set up the shipyard industry in Jepara by utilizing teak wood as a superior commodity. Her journey was written in the book ‘Literature of Java’ by Dr. Th Pigeaud. It stated that the Jepara shipyard industry was the best and most extensive in Southeast Asia, and its products were in great demand by European nations. 

She is an inspirational woman in leadership and a symbol of determination because of her decision-making processes. It proves that women can play a vital role in communities and break down the barriers perpetuating gender-based discrimination. Now, it is our time to advocate and support women’s empowerment in creating a more inclusive society to contribute to a better world. 

Banyu just listened to my story with an O expression until we realized the sun was about to set. That’s how we usually spend our free days. 

“The Juxtaposition of Online and Offline Education in A Pandemic Era”

Bima Baihaqi Candra MAN 2 Kota Malang

The pandemic has taken a toll on most country’s states of education. In Indonesia, millions of children are forced to adapt to online learning. Approximately 60 million primary to secondary students must study at home and rely on gadgets to enable their education since the government announced that schools are closed indefinitely. From early 2020 till this very day, most schools are practicing online learning. Previously, however, some schools have tried to establish offline learning for a short period. Schools have returned to the digital learning method due to the increasing number of covid and the reports of new variants. The implemented digital curriculum has become the norm of learning in this pandemic in Indonesia. From homework, presentation to school events have adapted to a digital structure. The transition to online learning was sudden and unprepared; however, it could produce maximum results with the proper actions. Online learning has several advantages and disadvantages; likewise, its counterpart both exceeds each other in different features, and below are the aspects in which both excel on their respective elements.


           The appearance of online learning provides mobility and flexibility, in which teachers and students can set their own learning pace. Schools now can set schedules per their needs. Some Indonesian schools now adopt shortened programs compared to the usual, leaving the students with more free time that students can utilize for self-improvement or family bonding activities. With the geographic restrictions lifted by online learning, schools can reach out to a more extensive range of students. Moreover, online learning can be archived with the recording feature, allowing the materials to be viewed later on by the students for future references at a time of their convenience.


           Online learning also provides affordability. Before the digital era, Indonesian schools primarily relied on hard copy materials for the learning process. Students must purchase hard copy materials such as books or worksheets known as UKBM at the local bookstore or the school’s cooperative at a relatively low price. However, in an online environment, education materials are available anywhere. From websites to social media posts, study materials are inclusive as ever these days. With the hard materials replaced, students and teachers are at ease since studying materials can be delivered within a single click. Establishing online learning also eliminates the cost of transportation meals, not to mention the hard copy materials, therefore creating a paperless learning environment, bringing economic affordability while also being beneficial to the environment.


           Despite the advantages mentioned above, online learning still possesses several disadvantages in Indonesia. The country is still experiencing learning loss due to the nonoptimal realization of online learning. Learning loss is a condition in which a country’s education is degrading. The World Bank data stated that as a result of the pandemic, the country (Indonesia) has lost about a half year of learning. Online learning has yet to be realized optimally, primarily in rural areas where educational facilities are limited. Rural education aside, these are the negative traits of online learning common in many Indonesian students.


           The flexibility that online learning provides is often taken for granted by both students and teachers. From the student’s perspective, students and teachers can take online learning anywhere as long as they have an internet connection. In previous times when offline schools still existed, to undergo a vacation, a permit must be submitted and signed by the teachers. Recently, however, for students to ask permission to be dismissed from online learning is just within a click. As a result, many students can be absent without a specific permit from the school. On the other hand, from a teacher’s perspective, it is more or less the same as the students, and it is affecting the quality of the learning process in which it is producing less optimal results due to unfocused lectures.


           It is undeniable that online learning’s affordability has helped the citizens financially. However, the downsides are that the technology that online learning requires is considered relatively expensive in Indonesia, mostly in rural areas. Rural areas lack proper facilities and funding, and as a result, online learning is unable to be conducted optimally. Therefore, rural areas are constantly experiencing learning loss due to the government’s latest policy to close schools.


          In addition to its affordability, whereas students can get materials digitally, we can infer that in this pandemic, students must be in front of a gadget to participate in online learning for long periods. The LED on devices emits blue light radiation, potentially harmful to eye health. Most online schools have shortened the study schedule to give students a rest from harmful radiation from their phones. However, knowing the characteristic of Indonesian adolescents, they would most likely keep using their phones to surf social media or enjoy digital entertainment, thus increasing blue light exposure, which affects their eye health.


           Lastly, but the most critical aspect of learning itself, the presence of a teacher is essentially the most contributing factor to a country’s educational development. The process of online learning eliminates the real-time chemistry between students and teachers. Chemistry is essential as it strengthens the bond and increases the study spirit of the students, therefore enabling students to produce optimal results. Whereas in online learning, the conversation between teachers and students feels awkward and silent. Students require real-time interaction to build chemistry and to understand the subjects thoroughly. It provides them productivity support and learning with satisfaction, and later on nurtures their problem solving and critical thinking skills, which online learning has yet to offer.


           From the aforementioned points comparing online and offline learning, we can infer that offline learning offers better benefits for the country’s future. Online learning will surely be the norm of education in the future, and it can be conducted optimally with a better system and the proper equipment and primed planning. However, offline learning has again been put on hold with the current situation in which the pandemic is rising with new variants in several significant provinces. Therefore, regardless of the learning method, as fellow students, we can only do our best while hoping for the pandemic to rest.
