The Role of Gender and Education on Decision-Making

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>In this article we investigated the predominance of six unique dimensions of decisionmaking. We defined those dimensions as rationality, acuity, autonomy, openness, control, and emotion-neutrality. Our data is based on an online survey conducted on a global scale. From this survey, we received a total of 356 responses, of which 204 (57.3%) are females, and 152 (42.70%) are males. Of the respondents, 139 (39.04%) work in the education sector as teachers, academicians, lab instructors, course assistants and the remainder in other occupations. Our results suggest that emotion-neutrality is positively associated with all the dimensions of decision-making except acuity. We found that emotion-neutrality plays a significant role in the decision-making processes. However, female respondents perceive themselves to be less emotion-neutral, a finding that is amplified in the education sector. Thus, female teachers are more likely to make emotional decisions.</jats:p>

On the design of a novel fully compliant spherical four-bar mechanism
Parlaktaş, Volkan; Tanık, Engin; Tanık, Çağıl Merve (SAGE Publications, 2019-9)
<jats:p> In this article, a novel fully compliant spherical four-bar mechanism is introduced and its generalized design methodology is proposed. The original fully compliant mechanism lies on a plane at the free position (undeflected position); therefore, it has the advantages of ease of manufacturing, minimized parts, and no backlash. First, the mobility conditions of the mechanism are obtained. The dimensions of the mechanism are optimally calculated for maximum output rotation, while keeping the deflecti...
Estimation of response errors in complex sample surveys
Fahmi, Fidan Mahmut; Öztaş, H. Ayhan; Batmaz, İnci; Department of Statistics (2013)
In this thesis, simple and correlated response errors are investigated. The optimum interviewer allocation settings has been investigated by using different experimental design models (Nested design, Nested and factorial factors design and Split plot design). The proposed designs considers several stages of an interactive process. Several linear and multiplicative models have been used to explain the factors effecting nonsampling errors. This naturally includes response error models. The response error mode...

Generalized linear models are widely-used statistical techniques. As an extension, generalized partial linear models utilize semiparametric methods and augment the usual parametric terms by a single nonparametric component of a continuous covariate. In this paper, after a short introduction, we present our model in the generalized additive context with a focus on penalized maximum likelihood and on the penalized iteratively reweighted least squares (P-IRLS) problem based on B-splines which is attractive for...
Investigation of preservice science teachers’ nature of science understanding and decision making on socioscientific issue through the fractal model
Adal, Elif Ece; Çakıroğlu, Jale; Department of Elementary Education (2019)
This is a qualitative grounded theory study to reveal how decision making (DM) processes on socioscientific issue (SSI) in a referendum case are operated by unsophisticated (Group U) and sophisticated (Group S) ones in terms of nature of science (NOS) understandings. Firstly, pre-study was conducted with focus group interviews with pre-service science teachers. With the findings, semi-structured in-depth interviews of main study for DM on SSI- the artificial meat was developed. In main study, 12 participant...
