Development of Self Regulatory Strategies Scale SRSS

Çapa Aydın, Yeşim
The purpose of this study was to develop a scale assessing high school students' use of self-regulatory strategies while studying. In the pilot study, the scale was administered to 422 students. Eight factors were obtained through explanatory factor analysis: namely, motivation regulation, effort regulation, planning, attention focusing, summary strategy, highlighting strategy, using additional resources, and self-instruction. In the validation study, the 29-item final version of the scale was administered to 616 students. Results of confirmatory factor analysis confirmed eight factor solution. The Cronbach's alpha for each factor ranged from .68 to .82. Additionally, results of Multivariate Analysis of Variance revealed significant gender differences. Findings provided some evidence for the validity and reliability of the Self-Regulatory Strategies Scale scores.

Development and Validation of Chemistry Self-Efficacy Scale for College Students
UZUNTIRYAKI, ESEN; Çapa Aydın, Yeşim (2009-08-01)
This study described the process of developing and validating the College Chemistry Self-Efficacy Scale (CCSS) that can be used to assess college students' beliefs in their ability to perform essential tasks in chemistry. In the first phase, data collected from 363 college students provided evidence for the validity and reliability of the new scale. Three dimensions emerged: self-efficacy for cognitive skills, self-efficacy for psychomotor skills, and self-efficacy for everyday applications. In the second p...

Eymur, Guluzar; Cetin, Pinar; Geban, Ömer (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2013-08-01)
The purpose of this study was to analyze and compare the alternative conceptions of high school students and preservice teachers on the concept of atomic size. The Atomic Size Diagnostic Instrument was developed; it is composed of eight, two-tier multiple-choice items. The results of the study showed that as a whole 56.2% of preservice teachers and 59.4% of high school students correctly answered six or more questions out of eight. New alternative conceptions about atomic size, which could be grouped under ...

KARA, MEHMET; Yıldırım, Zahide (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-03-01)
The current study reports the findings of the first step of a comprehensive performance improvement study, identification of the optimal behaviors. In this sense, this study aims to determine the optimal faculty behaviors in distance education based on the perspectives of the stakeholders based on the framework of transactional distance (TD) theory. The data were obtained from the stakeholders of distance education practices; distance education experts from eight universities, and faculty members, administr...
The contribution of cognitive and metacognitive strategy use to seventh grade students' science achievement
Akyol, Gülsüm; Öztekin, Ceren; Department of Educational Sciences (2009)
The purposes of the study were to examine the differences in the level of students’ cognitive and metacognitive strategy use and to investigate the contribution of cognitive and metacognitive strategy use (rehearsal, elaboration, organization, critical thinking, and metacognitive self-regulation) to 7th grade students’ science achievement. This study also interested in exploring the relationships between students’ background characteristics (gender, prior knowledge, socioeconomic status) and the variables i...
Effect of structuring cooperative learning based on conceptual change approach on students' understanding of the concepts of mixtures and their motivation
Belge Can, Hatice; Boz, Yezdan; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2013)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of structuring cooperative learning based on conceptual change approach on grade nine students’ understanding the concepts of mixtures and their motivation, compared to traditional instruction. Mixtures Concept Test (MCT), self-efficacy for learning and performance, task value, control of learning beliefs, and test anxiety sub-scales of Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ), and mastery approach goals, mastery avoidance goals, performan...
