Concurrent validity and test-retest reliability of the information processing styles

Baloğlu, Mustafa
Zelhart, PF
To investigate concurrent validity and test-retest reliability of thr Information Processing Styles, 62 students majoring in social sciences evaluated the accuracy of the checklist in describing their dominant types. Each student had a friend who read the descriptions of thy dominant types(s) of the student and rated their perceived accuracy of that categorization. Analyses indicated the inventory is reliable and valid.


Measuring striving for understanding and learning value of geometry: a validity study
Ubuz, Behiye (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01)
The current study aimed to construct a questionnaire that measures students' personality traits related to striving for understanding and learning value of geometry and then examine its psychometric properties. Through the use of multiple methods on two independent samples of 402 and 521 middle school students, two studies were performed to address this issue to provide support for its validity. In Study 1, exploratory factor analysis indicated the two-factor model. In Study 2, confirmatory factor analysis ...
Geometry knowledge test about triangles: evidence on validity and reliability
Ubuz, Behiye (2018-08-01)
In the present study we aimed to develop a multidimensional test assessing high school students' knowledge about triangles, and then to determine the validity evidence for it based on the internal structure and relations to another variable and its reliability. The test developed was administered to 557 tenth grade students. To assess the validity evidence based on the internal structure, the data were analyzed using confirmatory factor analysis, inter-dimension correlations and two-way MANOVA across gender...
Framing Open Design through Theoretical Concepts and Practical Applications: A Systematic Literature Review
Bakırlıoğlu, Yekta; Kohtala, Cindy (2019-09-01)
This study reports on the results of a systematic literature review on 'open design' in academic fields including and beyond design and HCI. The review investigates how studies are framed as open design and open-source design (including 'open hardware'): how researchers contribute to conceptual theorizing about open design or study its practical operationalization, in do-it-yourself 'making,' manufacturing and practices in-between these domains. Most of the papers reviewed were empirical studies from divers...
Convergence Error and Higher-Order Sensitivity Estimations
Eyi, Sinan (2012-10-01)
The aim of this study is to improve the accuracy of the finite-difference sensitivities of differential equations solved by iterative methods. New methods are proposed to estimate the convergence error and higher-order sensitivities. The convergence error estimation method is based on the eigenvalue analysis of linear systems, but it can also be used for nonlinear systems. The higher-order sensitivities are calculated by differentiating the approximately constructed differential equation with respect to the...
Strengths and weaknesses of problem-based learning in engineeriing education: students’ and tutors’ perspectives
Ateş, Özlem; Eryılmaz, Ali (2010-01-01)
This study aims to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of problem-based learning (PBL) implementations in engineering education and problems encountered in it from the perspectives of tutors and students. A case study design was employed in this study. To this end, four tutors, their five PBL modules, and fourteen students were selected. The data were collected by means of observations, interviews, and additional data sources. The results indicated that gaining engineer’s viewpoint and self confidence; imp...
