Ibrahim Mohammad Hammad

This study aimed at finding the level of female students' performance of Islamic Schools in Telawah in the U.K. Study Population is all female students in recent years in the Islamic Schools and their number is (196) students from different Islamic Schools in the East Midland and Sheffield. Quasi-experimental study sample included (158) female students who have studied the nine rules under consideration in this research. To implement this study the following research one Quranic text is selected from the first ten the parts assigned for the students to study and the verses (87-98) of Al-Baqarah were selected. The students' performance evaluation of in the Telawah of these verses was done according to the following procedures: A committee was formed from the researcher and the two specialists teachers of Telawah; the committee listened to the recorded Telawah on a tape from the recorder for each member of the sample alone;the student's result was adopted in any of these rules in the event that two members agreed at a minimum and thus it is possible to limit the number of mistakes that have occurred with each student of the students included in the study; accordingly, each student was given a score of (100) in each rule of the nine rules, then in the whole rules combined; and finally, to be certain of the validation of procedures for conducting the study to evaluate the students' performance, the committee after two weeks of the first evaluation listened again to the recorded Telawah of 20 students from the students sample. The coefficient correlation was calculated between test scores for this regular sample by using the Pearson Correlation Coefficient reaching (0.88) and this is an accepted correlation, which shows the reliability of the judgments of the arbitrators.
To answer the questions included in the study, the following appropriate statistical treatments were used:
Frequencies, means, and percentages were used to calculate this in each rule of the nine rules and for the sample members who have attained the mastery level in a number of rules; T-test was used to compare the average performance of the sample in each rule of the Telawah rules with the approved mastery level in this study, which is the score (70); and Pearson's Correlation Coefficient has been found to find the correlation strength between the students' performance level in each rule of the nine rules compared with other rules and the rules as a whole. The results of the present study showed that the percentage of those who reached acceptable mastery level in the whole of the nine rules is (9.5%), which is an indicator of the low level of students' performance in Telawah. In the light of the finding of this study, the researcher recommended the following:

1- Holding Continuous training courses for teachers in Telawah.
2- Holding Training courses teachers in modern methods of teaching.
3- Caring for Arabic Language and linking it with the rest of the subjects as possible.
