The survey took around one week, from 11th to 18th May, by using a google form. There were twenty participants from five different majors, namely English Education, Mathematics Education, Physics Education, Biology Education, and Arabic Education. Besides, each field was represented by four equal respondents, and equal gender, male and female. They are currently studying in semester six, which means that they will have teaching internship at schools in semester seven, or by the middle of this year.
