This study examines factorial structure and the gender invariance of the Turkish version of the Survey of Attitudes toward Statistics (SATS-36). The SATS-36 has 36 items measuring six components: affect, cognitive competence, value, difficulty, effort, and interest. Data were collected from 347 university students. Results showed that the Turkish version of the SATS-36 had a six-factor structure and it was gender invariant. Internal consistency coefficients supported good score reliability for the subscales of the SATS-36.

A marginalized multilevel model for bivariate longitudinal binary data
Inan, Gul; İlk Dağ, Özlem (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-06-01)
This study considers analysis of bivariate longitudinal binary data. We propose a model based on marginalized multilevel model framework. The proposed model consists of two levels such that the first level associates the marginal mean of responses with covariates through a logistic regression model and the second level includes subject/time specific random intercepts within a probit regression model. The covariance matrix of multiple correlated time-specific random intercepts for each subject is assumed to ...
