An Experimental investigation of ICT expertise by gaze analysis

Kaya, Erdi
The aim of the present study is to contribute to the approaches used for the division of experts and novices according to the approaches and differences in question answering. For this purpose, an experiment was conducted with 41 participants. The subjects were divided into two groups as experts and novices according to their information test scores. Then the participants answered a set of questions based on ICT and their eye movements were recorded. The participants were then divided as high performers and low performers according to the experimental task scores. The results showed that the information test on paper was not successful to divide the participants as experts and novices. There was a significant difference between high performers and low performers in terms of gazing at the correct answers compared to incorrect ones. On the other hand, no significant differences were obtained in other gaze measures. The conclusion is that the investigation of the differences between high and low performers by eye tracking is subject to a limited set of measures.


A design based research on the use of a blended learning environment
Gedik, Nuray; Özden, M. Yaşar; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2010)
The purpose of this study is to examine and describe student and instructor experiences and perceptions of course design, and identify the critical issues regarding the use of a blended learning environment. A design based research (DBR) framework with qualitative approaches was carried out by collecting data from an undergraduate course offered to sophomores. The primary approach was phenomenology using the lens of heuristic inquiry. Interviews, questionnaires, documents, observation notes, instructor diar...
A metamodeling methodology involving both qualitative and quantitative input factors
Tunali, S; Batmaz, I (Elsevier BV, 2003-10-16)
This paper suggests a methodology for developing a simulation metamodel involving both quantitative and qualitative factors. The methodology mainly deals with various strategic issues involved in metamodel estimation, analysis, comparison, and validation. To illustrate how to apply the methodology, a regression metamodel is developed for a client-server computer system. In particular, we studied how the response time is affected by the quantum interval, the buffer size. and the total number of terminals whe...
A quantitative investigation of students' attitudes towards electronic book technology
Bulur, Hatice Gonca (SAGE Publications, 2020-09-01)
The purpose of this study is to analyse the factors that have an impact on technology adoption for e-books utilizing the Analytic Hierarchy Process and Multiple Regression Analysis methods. Findings indicate that perceived usefulness and ease of use are the most significant determinants in using e-books. Of key significance is that Analytic Hierarchy Process results show that consumers make pairwise comparisons, adding environmental concerns to the selection process. Recognizing the importance of all these ...
The effect of the hypothetical learning trajectories and the contribution of the eye-tracking technology in understanding the young children’s mathematical patterning recognition and generalization
Yılmaz, Nursel.; Şahin, Volkan; Department of Elementary and Early Childhood Education (2019)
The primary aim of this study is to evaluate whether patterning instruction based on a hypothetical learning trajectory (HLT) is more efficacious than the same instruction presented in an integrated manner or business as usual. The HLT-based and integrated instruction were developed using Design-Based Research (DBR) involving three phases and two iteration cycles. The patterning HLT and accompanying instructional activities proposed by Clements and Sarama (2009) was the starting point for the HLT-based inst...
The Extended-OPQ Method for User-Centered Quality of Experience Evaluation: A Study for Mobile 3D Video Broadcasting over DVB-H
Strohmeier, Dominik; Jumisko-Pyykko, Satu; Kunze, Kristina; Bici, Mehmet Oguz (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011)
The Open Profiling of Quality (OPQ) is a mixed methods approach combining a conventional quantitative psychoperceptual evaluation and qualitative descriptive quality evaluation based on naive participants' individual vocabulary. The method targets evaluation of heterogeneous and multimodal stimulus material. The current OPQ data collection procedure provides a rich pool of data, but full benefit of it has neither been taken in the analysis to build up completeness in understanding the phenomenon under the s...
