Development and Application of Three-Tier Heat and Temperature Test: Sample of Bachelor and Graduate Students

2010-06-01
Background of Study: Two-tier items compensate the limitation of simple multiple choice items that cannot measure the reason of selection of the alternatives. Three-tier items compensate the limitation of two-tier items that cannot measure the certainty of the responses. It is not common to use three-tier tests in the literature and there are validity and reliability problems with three-tier tests.

Identification of pre-service physics teachers' misconceptions on gravity concept: A study with a 3-tier misconception test
Kaltakci, Derya; Didis, Niluefer (2006-08-26)
In this study misconceptions, lack of knowledge and error are discriminated from each other and shown in percentages with a three tier Gravity concept test. It is conducted on 41 pre-service physics teachers on grades 4 and 5 at Middle East Technical University.

Development of a three tier test to assess high school students understanding of asids and bases
Çetin Dindar, Ayla; Geban, Ömer (2011-05-03)
Two-tier tests are such as assessment tools that can make available for teachers/researchers to determine students alternative conceptions and whether a student gives a correct response to a question by understanding the related subject since the secondtier of a test asks for a reason for the first-tier response. The purpose of this study was to develop a valid and reliable three-tier diagnostic test to assess students’ understanding of acids-bases concepts. For developing this test, interviews and open-end...
Development and application of a four-tier test to assess pre-service physics teachers' misconceptions about geometrical optics
Kaltakci-Gurel, Derya; Eryılmaz, Ali; MCDERMOTT, Lillian Christie (2017-06-01)
Background: Correct identification of misconceptions is an important first step in order to gain an understanding of student learning. More recently, four-tier multiple choice tests have been found to be effective in assessing misconceptions.Purpose: The purposes of this study are (1) to develop and validate a four-tier misconception test to assess the misconceptions of pre-service physics teachers (PSPTs) about geometrical optics, and (2) to assess and identify PSPTs' misconceptions about geometrical optic...
A statistical unified framework for rank-based multiple classifier decision combination
Saranlı, Afşar (2001-04-01)
This study presents a theoretical investigation of the rank-based multiple classifier decision combination problem, with the aim of providing a unified framework to understand a variety of such systems. The combination of the decisions of more than one classifiers with the aim of improving overall system performance is a concept of general interest in pattern recognition, as a viable alternative to designing a single sophisticated classifier. The problem of combining the classifier decisions in the raw form...
