Abstract: The research aimed to develop the evaluation model on learning management of foreign language teachers in the world class standard primary schools by using research and development process. The research was divided into 4 stages: (1) analyzed and synthesized the concept of learning management of foreign language teachers in the world class standard primary schools (2) constructed an evaluation model (3) trialed the evaluation model and (4) evaluated the evaluation model. The instruments used in this research consisted of an interview form, observation forms, evaluation forms and a questionnaire. The qualitative data were analyzed by contents analysis. The quantitative data were analyzed through basic statistics comprising percentage, mean, and standard deviation. The Wilcoxon Matched Pairs Signed Ranks Test and The Mann-Whitney U-Test were employed for testing hypotheses. The results of the study were as follows: 1) The concept of learning management of foreign language in the world class standard primary schools followed the principles of the Basic Education Core Curriculum B.E 2551. It was integrated by the world class curriculum to accelerate the potential of learners to the citizenship of the world; however, most WCS have not had the evaluation model on learning management. 2) The evaluation model on learning management of foreign language teachers in the world class standard primary schools consisted of 4 components: (1) the goal of evaluation (2) the objects of evaluation (3) the method of evaluation, and (4) the criteria of evaluation. 3) The discriminant validity of the evaluation model was statistically significant at .01 level. This improved the development of teachers on learning management which indicated that the mean score of the second evaluation was higher than the first evaluation with statistically significant at .01 level. 4) The evaluation model on learning management of foreign language teachers in the world class standard primary schools had overall standards for utility, feasibility propriety and accuracy at the high level. Classified by four aspects, it was found at the highest level in utility and accuracy, while other aspects were at a high level.

Abstract: The aim of this study was to assess helmet use and associated factors among motorcycle riders during Songkran festival in Thailand. A cross-sectional survey was conducted to determine the prevalence of helmet use among Thai motorcycle riders (sample size = 18,998) during four days of the Songkran festival. For this sample, the population of motorcycle riders was consecutively selected using quota sampling from 12 petrol stations in four provinces from each of the four main geographical regions of Thailand. The study was conducted at petrol stations at roads in town, outside town and highway at different time intervals when trained field staff administered a structured questionnaire and performed an observation checklist. Results indicate that 44.2% of the motorcycle riders and 72.5% of the motorcycle passengers had not been using a helmet. In multivariable analysis demographics, environmental factors, helmet use experiences and attitudes and recalling a lower exposure to road safety awareness (RSA) campaign were associated with non-helmet use among motorcyclists. It appears that the RSA campaign may have some positive effect on reducing non-helmet use among motorcycle riders during the Songkran festival.
