Using caption in teaching English as a second language has had its particular advocates throughout the history of language teaching. The present study intends to examine the potential effectiveness of captioned inputs for comprehension of English idiomatic expressions among EFL intermediate learners. It is set to determine how captioned inputs result in comprehension of English idiomatic expressions in comparison with non-captioned inputs. To this end, the Oxford Placement Test (OPT) was administered to 82 students in an English Institute of Shahrekord, Iran, to find out their English proficiency levels. The participants took a test of 40 multiple-choice items as a pretest to determine their background knowledge in English idioms. The questionnaire data revealed that learners who used captions could promote their attention and improved their learning processing. A reliable posttest was administered after teaching fifteen units of their English textbook during 15 weeks. The mean score by Kolmogorov-Smirnov showed the group using captioned slides of English idiomatic expressions outperformed the other group.

Operational auditing is an independent review including all aspects of an organization and an operational auditor has an overall objective to assess the quality of internal controls including its effectiveness and efficiency of operations, reliability of the financial reporting, and compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Operational auditing determines to what extent the manager has used the most efficient resources to achieve the most effective results. The aim of the research is to study whether applying risk-based audit would lead to increase the auditing efficiency process in operational auditing. In this research, Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) technique has been used to measure the efficiency. We can calculate the efficiency by some inputs or outputs in DEA method. To compare the obtained efficiency of operational auditing by DEA, inferential, non-parametric (or distribution free) statistical tests are used. SPSS and LINGO software and Compare Means are used to measure the efficiencies in the research. T-test results for average efficiency comparison have been divided to both model and non-model states and show that the risk-based average efficiency is significantly more than the non-model state. It is therefore concluded that applying risk-based auditing model can increase operational auditing efficiency process in output-oriented method.

In this paper, we examine the relation between ethics and mathematics and, through the formulas, we conclude a negative or positive behavior. If it was negative, it would behave incorrectly and if it was positive, it would be correct. Of course, each behavior is considered completely separate, and many of the benefits to each behavior may not be known yet. So any behavior will have either positive or negative effects; here is just one example of this template to illustrate them. Smoking was considered as a behavior. Given the advantages and disadvantages, an impact was defined for each, and eventually these impacts were expressed in terms of numbers, and the result was a negative number, which indicates that smoking is a negative behavior.

Nowadays negative implications of Globalization, the crisis of values, crisis of media, consumerism, and lack of cultural identification, impatience in the face of religion, virtual identification and loss of religious and traditional values are the main challenges confronting students. Besides transfer of knowledge, schools are responsible for educating the graduates, too. It means that it should invest in flourishing all existential dimensions of students including intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, and moral dimensions and care for their education and productivity. Now this question arises is that since religious education is a process accomplished through granting vision, genuine and practical obligation to the person, in harmony with his nature and far from force and pressure, in order to gain this- and other-worldly prosperity, can the school undertake this important responsibility or not and in the case of disability to fulfill this duty, should religious education be deschooled; i.e. the mission of religious education should be assigned to institutions other than school or not? The findings of this investigation show that religious education doesn’t have desirable situation and the new generation doesn’t receive the religious thoughts and behaviors as is qualified. Teachers use grade and other quantitative indices to teach values and morality and evaluate the progress in religious education of students; this results in duality of the student’s identity, personality and behavior, because they are not motivated internally to learn religious issues. On the other hand, in Islamic societies, the administrators and politicians cannot be irresponsible for the religious education of members of their society. According to the doctrines of the true religion, Islam, governors and politicians are obliged to attempt to accomplish this affair, so ministry of education in Iran as a public institution has taken the charge of this affair and schools are charged with delivering religious and divine education to the students and the necessity of deschooling the religious education is denied in Islamic republic of Iran and since our formal education is directly governed by the government and is mentioned in national document of school curriculum and also the document of fundamental transition in education, the objective of education is to educate a religious and committed human being, we may not separate the religious education of students from school. So the possibility of deschooling from religious education in Iran is denied, too. But the tenure of government and formal education relating to religious education is conditional upon conditions, that if accomplished, the tenure will be permitted. In this article these conditions are indicated in detail. International Journal of Advanced Studies in Humanities and Social Science (IJASHSS)
