The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of web supported statistics education environment for graduate level students. The intention of the study was to construct a web support system for traditionally offered Educational Statistics course in order to decrease both instructor and students efforts to communicate, present, reach and use the resources. The subjects of the study were 21 graduate students of Educational Statistics course offered. None of the subjects was offered an on-line course before. The study used both quantitative and qualitative measurements to analyze the effectiveness of the site and perceptions of the users. The results of the study indicated that there was an improvement in students' achievement related to educational statistics through web supported instruction. Besides, the perceptions of the students were collected with interview questions about the functions and usability of the system. The highly positive perceptions of the students showed that, it is necessary for the students to have such a course support system.

Akar, Hanife (2010-01-01)
The purpose of this study was to understand the impact of the social constructivist environment on student achievement in teacher education. An experimental design where the experimental group (n = 66) was subjected to social constructivist environments, and the control group (n = 59) was subjected to traditional learning instruction was used. All the participants were administered an achievement test as a pre-test, and post-test. The same test was also administered as a retention test after a three-month s...

Aypay, Ahmet; Erdogan, Mehmet; Soezer, Mehmet A. (Wiley, 2007-12-01)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the differences among schools using student responses in the Trends in Mathematics and Science Study-1999 (TIMSS-99) data. Schools were classified into two groups based on eighth grade students' overall achievement in science. Two different discriminant function analyses were performed to distinguish high- and low-performing schools, based both on classroom practices and factor structures (student-centered activities, teacher-centered activities, attitudes toward...
