An investigation into the implementation of alternative assessment in the young learner classroom
Çetin, Lynn Marie Bethard; Özbek Gürbüz, Nurdan; Department of English Language Teaching (2011)
The purpose of this study was to explore and develop a better understanding of the implementation of alternative assessment in the young learner classroom. This in-depth, qualitative study focuses on teachers’ practices and beliefs, as well as the student perspective and the role of alternative assessment in the instructional process. Case studies were carried out on nine different English language teachers and their use of alternative assessment strategies and tools over a six month period in their first, ...
Survival and recovery of calcareous foraminifera pursuant to the end-Permian mass extinction
Groves, JR; Altıner, Demir (Elsevier BV, 2005-09-01)
Ninety-one percent of calcareous foraminiferal genera became extinct during the end-Permian mass extinction. The Early Triassic Epoch was a survival phase characterized by a short-lived proliferation of disaster forms and then I prolonged interval of low diversity. The orders Miliolida and Lagenida experienced limited taxonomic re-diversification in Early and Late Anisian time, respectively. All fusulinoidean fusulinides became extinct in Late Permian time, and only two non-fusulinoidean genera persisted in...
Perceived roles, resposibilities and challenges of CT's in the procedure of teaching practice course in practicum
Sağlam, Gülderen; Yemenici, Ayşegül; Department of English Language Teaching (2007)
This research study aims to investigate how cooperating teachers (CTs) in Partnership Schools working with pre-service teachers (PTs) from Universities in Ankara and Bursa reflect on challenges they face according to their own perceived roles and responsibilities in the process of implementing their complicated and demanding work to contribute to pre-service teacher training in schools. The present study specifically focuses on cooperating teachers’ perceived challenges in relation to the feedback process a...
Timing of depositional regime changes during the Late Cretaceous evolution of the Southern Pontides (Ankara, Central Anatolia, Turkey)
Sariaslan, Nisan; Altıner, Sevinç; Altıner, Demir (Elsevier BV, 2020-08-01)
During the Cretaceous, vast amounts of marine sediments were deposited along the south-facing active margin of the Eurasia. A stratigraphic section of 91 m was analyzed for planktonic foraminifera (75 samples), with the aim of establishing a refined biostratigraphy of Cenomanian-Campanian deposits in Central Anatolia. A biostratigraphic framework comprising nine biozones was established. In ascending order, the Rotalipora cushmani, Whiteinella archaeocretacea and Helvetoglobotruncana helvetica zones were de...
Emergence of communication in RObots through Sensorimotor and Social Interaction (ROSSI)
Şahin, Erol(2011-10-31)
Starting from the assumption that cognition is embodied, the ROSSI project addresses the question how the possibility of communication between agents (e.g. humans and robots) is effected by differences in sensorimotor capacities.This is an important issue, given that robots are expected to become more common in non-structured environments, such as homes or hospitals. While there is a trend towards humanoid robots, it is clear that for the foreseeable future there will still be substantial differences in phy...
