In the conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic, the strategies carried out to break the chain of transmission, one of which is by limiting social activities. A physical distancing policy has also been created which causes the face-to-face teaching and learning process to be transformed into an online learning system. Research is needed on the factors that can affect the satisfaction of health professional students related to online learning which requires valid instruments to answer research problems. The aim of study is determining the content validity of the questionnaire as a research instrument on the factors that influence health professional student satisfaction with online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. The content validity of the instrument was carried out on 52 statement items by 7 experts. The validated instrument is an online questionnaire which refers to and adopts and modifies the questionnaire used by Pei-Chen Sun. The results of the validation of the 52 statement items obtained S-CVI/Ave by 7 experts of 0,953, S-CVI/Ave based on I-CVI of 0,945, S-CVI/UA of 0,731. Initial CVI of 0.890, but 4 items were eliminated, there were 48 statement items used as a research instrument with a final CVI of 0.935. The reliability test results obtained a Cronbach’s alpha coefficient value is 0.912. Calculating CVR, CVI and Cronbach’s alpha coefficient ensures that the questionnaire used as a research instrument is valid and reliable to assess the factors that influence health professional student satisfaction with online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine, 2020, Volume 7, Issue 6, Pages 2943-2949

Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient (α) is commonly engaged to measure the reliability in social, behavioural and education sciences. It is found to be observed that every study call for measuring a construct through multiple items. The estimation methods of Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient (α) and McDonald’s Omega coefficient (ω) absolutely considers that data is complete and normally distributed. Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient (α) relies on assumptions, whereas McDonald Omega coefficient (ω) is relying on fewer and better realistic assumption/s than the Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient (α). The impact of item deletion has been not observed on population reliability if Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient (α) item deleted, but in case of McDonald Omega coefficient (ω), it reflects true population estimates of reliability through the removal of certain scale of item.Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient (α) shall be replaceable with McDonald’s Omega coefficient (ω) and it is strongly recommended to use in place of McDonald’s Omega coefficient (ω). Literature Review of Cronbach Alpha Coefficient (α) and McDonald’s Omega Coefficient (ω) has been carried out by me to implement the McDonald's Omega Coefficient (ω) concept in the analysis of my research work data/responses.This concept is applicable, wherever the responses from a sample (i.e., out of universe) is required to be collected for analysis and to conclude (i.e., to arrive at decision) at a particular issue in under mentioned study area/s and they are business management (human resources, marketing etc.), medical (virus, diabatology, aids etc.,), arts, science, engineering (civil, mechanical etc.)

Video games can also be used to aid the students in overcoming difficulties and problems that they face throughout the educational process. Analysis reveals that vocabulary acquisition is the key for proficiency in a language. Interventions that focus on improving vocabulary have demonstrated a positive impact on the academic performance of English as Second Language (ESL) learners in several different environments. When foreign children for instance, Uzbek children are learning the English language, they are acquiring new vocabulary, which they need to be able to retain for future use, in order to commit the new vocabulary to long-term memory. Games, from classic children's games to high-quality video games, are a valuable addition to a school’s ESL program. The use of games in a learning environment is an effective tool to ensure vocabulary acquisition and language proficiency.
This article describes how games can be used as a vehicle to inspire foreign students to learn the English language, and how these games aid them to overcome difficulties and problems faced throughout the learning process. The benefits of using games to improve conversation skills of foreign students to prepare them for integration into university life will be highlighted. Furthermore, what makes computer games fun and a rewarding experience will be discussed. This article supports studies such as a study that examined learners using the computer game and whether playing the language game would develop additional English vocabulary or not.
