Teacher autonomy encompasses pedagogical activities oriented towards planning, instruction, and assessment, as well as administrative tasks required by the education system. Therefore, it is imperative to focus research on teacher autonomy in specific tasks, using data collection procedures suitable to the context. In this study, the aim is to validate an original scale for collecting data on teacher autonomy in classroom settings under criteria established by Self-Determination Theory, in the framework of basic psychological needs. The method comprises a nonexperimental quantitative design, using a random cluster sample that is understood as a probability sampling because participant teachers only work in primary education levels. Results demonstrate that the scale possesses a strong degree of robustness regarding construction, application, and data collection. In conclusion, the validated scale identifies teacher autonomy as an explanatory variable in the model.

Educating our students in developing countries such as Vietnam is becoming necessary. So first of all, this study aims to identify factors that impact on students’ decision to work for a foreign company for those who are studying in the field of social sciences and humanities. Based on 508 responses, the results from linear regression analysis shows that Self-Interests, Self-Outcome Expectations (internal factors), University’s Gains, and References (external factors) were factors that affect student workplace choice. Meanwhile, the factor of capacity (“Self-efficacy”) to perform the task (“Working environment”) has no statistical relationship. This result suggests for educational managers, business managers in general and foreign enterprises in particular to coordinate vocational education for students.

This article reveals the features of nonverbal thinking in children with autism spectrum disorders. The article summarizes the experience of studying approaches to understanding nonverbal thinking in children aged 5 to 7 with autism spectrum disorders. Of interest is the described dual coding theory, the aspects of which should be the basis for the formation of nonverbal thinking in children with autism. The analysis of psychological, pedagogical and specialized literature allowed us to define the concept of "nonverbal thinking". Special attention is paid to the definition of criteria, indicators and the selection of methods for the experimental part of the study. The study of nonverbal thinking revealed that children with autism can name objects and use them. The practical significance of the study lies in the fact that the proposed means that contribute to the formation of nonverbal thinking in children aged 5 to 7 with this pathology can be used in the correctional and developmental work of teachers, teachers-psychologists, teachers-defectologists and parents who raise their children.
