Abstract

Most TOEIC test takers who score low are unfamiliar with the format of the test. This study aims to identify the problems that will likely become obstacles in the Reading Section of the TOEIC test. The data come from the results of the English I online final exam in the second term of 2017/2018 as well as the English II online mid-term and final exam in the first term of 2018/2019, all of which were held in Politeknik Negeri Batam. The exams are part of Moodle-based e-learning courses. The data consist of questions which have a low percentage of correct answers. The analysis was done by classifying the questions based on the five abilities measured in the Reading Section (vocabulary, grammar, specific information, inference, and connection). Based on the analysis, it can be observed that the biggest challenge comes from grammar, while the search for specific information poses little to no problem at all. It means the students still consider Reading Section of TOEIC test requires no special attention.

Abstract

This research aims to describe: (1) the March 2015 National Geographic article Fleeing Terror, Finding Refuge and its March 2015 National Geographic Indonesia Indonesian translation Mencari Tempat Berlindung’s thematic structure and progression, (2) the translation techniques employed and its effect on the translation’s thematic structure and progression, and (3) its effect on the translation quality. This study belongs to the qualitative research at the descriptive level, employs embedded case study approach, and focuses on the translation product. The data consist of the Themes of the National Geographic Maret 2015 article Fleeing Terror, Finding Refuge and its National Geographic Indonesia Maret 2015 Indonesian translation Mencari Tempat Berlindung collected through content analysis and the result of the informant’s translation quality assessment collected through questionnaire and focus group discussion. This study revealed that the translation employs more marked Topical Theme than the source text and the percentage of the translation’s Rheme-based progressions (the simple linear and split Rheme progression) is higher than the source text’s. The thematic structure shifts—mostly a shift from the unmarked to the marked Topical Theme and vice-versa or a change in the Topical Theme constituent—can be caused by the use of these six translation techniques: transposition, modulation, reduction, amplification, established equivalent, and particularization. Of these six, particularization does not cause any Thematic progression shift. These six techniques that can cause a shift in the Thematic structure can also decrease the translation’s quality. Keywords: Thematic structure, Thematic progression, translation techniques, translation quality assessment

Abstract

Tanjung Bemban is one of the seas found in the Nongsa sub-district, Batam city which is currently developed as a tourist attraction. This research aims to find out the hydro-oceanographic component, which consists of tide and the current and wave pattern in the sea of Tanjung Bemban Nongsa. To collect the data regarding tide, Tide Pole method, using measuring sign, is used, To collect data of sea current, Float Tracking (Lagrangian) method, by measuring distance and displacement of floating objects in the sea, is utilized, To collect the data of the wave, Wave Pole method, by measuring wave height, is employed. Based on the result of the research, it is clear that the tide of the sea is categorized as the semi diurnal, since there are two tides in one day with identical height, which occur sequentially and regularly. The highest flow reaches 260 cm and the lowest ebb 19 cm in the 4 days of observation, with 15 minutes interval. The measuring of ocean current is carried out for every 30-second intervals. Current velocity in Nongsa sea ranges from 0.02 m/s to 0.26 m/s. The current moves from east to southwest and west, even though some move northwest and north. Wave height is quite low, between 18 cm and 23 cm. Hydro-oceanographically, the Tanjung Bemban Nongsa area can be developed into a strategic tourism area

Abstract

This study aims to obtain a geological model which is close to the truth and compare accuracy between the time domain 3D image of the PSTM results with the depth domain 3D image of PSDM results. There are 3 parameters to determine the accuracy of an interval velocity model in the production of a geology model: depth gathering that is already flat, semblance that has concurred with zero residual move-out axes, and depth image which conforms to the marker (well seismic tie). The analytical method employed is Horizon Based Tomography, which is a method to correct the seismic wave travel time error along the analyzed horizon. Reducing errors in the travel time of the seismic wave will decrease depth errors. This improvement is expected to provide correct information about subsurface geological conditions. The results showed that the depth domain image generated by the PSDM process represents the actual geological model better than time domain image produced by the PSTM process, evidenced by the sharpening of the reflector continuity, reduction of pull-up effect, and high resolution.
