The existence of UINAR is more than just an educational institution, but within UINAR's body, there is a social history of the Aceh People. After the transformation to UIN, the students are offered with a more diverse study program that is no longer only focused in Islamic studies, UIN Ar-Raniry opens greater access to students from the general public. However, this act of changing into Islamic University went through ups and downs. The idea of changing the IAIN Ar-Raniry became spotlighted by Acehnese community groups. There was a debate in public discussion and argumentation in mass media, and also among UIN Ar-Raniry's academic community. They argued that this kind of act would raise concerns about the loss of Islamic studies after being changed into UIN. In the midst of the worry of the elements of society about the change to UIN, UINAR has proven the worries wrong and remains strong and the change is very influential on UINAR competitiveness.</span></span></pre> Fridiyanto Fridiyanto ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2017-12-29 2017-12-29 22 2 21 43 Are Islamic Boarding Schools Ready? The Use of the Computer-Based Test in the National Exam Policy for English Subject http://jurnal.radenfatah.ac.id/index.php/tadib/article/view/1638 <p>The question of “Are Islamic boarding schools ready for using the computer-based test in the national exam policy? is interesting and challenging. Looking at the various conditions of Islamic boarding schools throughout Indonesia, the use of the computer-based test in the national exam policy for English subject is challenging for santris and ustazd (teachers). It is challenging because Islamic boarding schools are characteristically underprivileged and santris live in disadvantaged conditions under firm rules. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the use of the computer based test in the national examination for English subject at Islamic boarding schools. In this paper, I will discuss about the characteristics of English examination, the national examination policy in Indonesia, the national examination with computer based test, and the national examination in Islamic boarding school, and whether Islamic boarding schools are ready for using the computer-based test in the national exam policy for English subject.<strong></strong></p> Eka Septiarini Carolina ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2017-12-29 2017-12-29 22 2 44 53 Performance Management and Quality Culture Reflection towards the Professional Teachers of the ASEAN Economic Community Era http://jurnal.radenfatah.ac.id/index.php/tadib/article/view/1639 <p>Educational problems are so complex. It spurs so fast and moves dynamically through time and place, and those which are stagnant and rigid will be crushed. What Umar bin Khattab has said, "Educate your son according to his time" indicate that education moves over the times and places that continually change, and it necessitates renewal in all aspects, reinforced by the circumstance that today all information is easily accessed from the virtual world due to technological advances so that innovation becomes imperative. The organizational quality culture cannot be denied. It is last guardian of the continuity of education in addition to continuous improvement on the quality of educators. Otherwise, though not obvious, there will be a substitution of players with tight competition as globalization spreads in every sector. Every society knows that it is the education as a pioneer. Quality is not accidental work. It is sustained by the curriculum and educational system, and most importantly the professionalism of educators, for being the spearhead creators of creative, skilled and innovative resources, because people who truly have expertise (skilled labor) will survive in the ASEAN market, and hopefully Indonesian teachers can be ones</p> Serli Serli ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2017-12-29 2017-12-29 22 2 54 69 TEFL Students’ Language Learning Strategies: The Case of One State Islamic Institute in Indonesia http://jurnal.radenfatah.ac.id/index.php/tadib/article/view/1641 <p>The purpose of this quantitative study was  to examine the language learning strategies of TEFL students at State Islamic Institute of Kerinci.
