Is the use of GeoGebra advantageous in the process of argumentation?

The purpose of this study was to investigate the advantages and disadvantages of using GeoGebra in an argumentative application. For this purpose, the data were collected from eight prospective elementary mathematics teachers via video recordings, reflection papers and interviews. Data were analyzed through qualitative data analysis methods. According to the results, making accurate drawings, creating confident justifications based on exact measurements, dragging objects to see relationships and saving time were the main advantages of GeoGebra in argumentation. On the other hand, not attending class discussion and not reasoning the relationships after measuring with GeoGebra were the disadvantages for argumentation.

A Rasch measurement example in a grant application process
Çapa Aydın, Yeşim (2003-04-25)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of a Rasch-based procedure to calibrate responses for funding applications. The data set included 112 proposals and 66 readers, who independently scored randomly assigned proposals using a scoring instrument. The data were analyzed using FACETS (Linacre, 1999). The analysis indicated that the instrument succeeded in separating proposals into four distinct strata of quality. The proposal quality measures were found to be trustworthy in terms of their ac...

DEMİRSÖZ, TALAT; MISIRLISOY, MİNE; Karancı, Ayşe Nuray (2018-12-01)
Objective: This study aims to examine the effects of the induction of thought-action fusion (TAF) on appraisal process, by using an enhanced paradigm which integrates the favourable aspects of Sentence Completion Task (SCT) with Obsessive-Compulsive (OC)-like perseverative reasoning (PR) task. The study also aims to evaluate the effect of psychoeducation (PE) on alleviating the level of TAF-Induction experience. Method: A total of three groups were formed. The first group with high OC traits (47 participant...

Eğeci, İlke Sine; Gençöz, Faruk; Department of Psychology (2010)
This study aimed to verify the propositions regarding the application procedures indicated in the cinematherapy literature. Moreover it was also aimed to frame the rationale of cinematherapy on a theoretical basis by integrating the procedures of cinematherapy intervention technique into Transtheoretical Model (Prochaska & Norcross, 2003) and to discover the mechanisms that the applications function through. Finally, it was also aimed to apply cinematherapy intervention technique to the domain of relationsh...
