Evaluating expert advice in forecasting: Users' reactions to presumed vs. experienced credibility

In expert knowledge elicitation (EKE) for forecasting, the perceived credibility of an expert is likely to affect the weighting attached to their advice. Four experiments have investigated the extent to which the implicit weighting depends on the advisor's experienced (reflecting the accuracy of their past forecasts), or presumed (based on their status) credibility. Compared to a control group, advice from a source with a high experienced credibility received a greater weighting, but having a low level of experienced credibility did not reduce the weighting. In contrast, a high presumed credibility did not increase the weighting relative to a control group, while a low presumed credibility decreased it. When there were opportunities for the two types of credibility to interact, a high experienced credibility tended to eclipse the presumed credibility if the advisees were non-experts. However, when the advisees were professionals, both the presumed and experienced credibility of the advisor were influential in determining the weight attached to the advice.

Comparative study of risk measures
Ekşi, Zehra; Körezlioğlu, Hayri; Department of Financial Mathematics (2005)
There is a little doubt that, for a decade, risk measurement has become one of the most important topics in finance. Indeed, it is natural to observe such a development, since in the last ten years, huge amounts of financial transactions ended with severe losses due to severe convulsions in financial markets. Value at risk, as the most widely used risk measure, fails to quantify the risk of a position accurately in many situations. For this reason a number of consistent risk measures have been introduced in...

Evaluating learning management systems: Hexagonal e-learning assessment model (HELAM)
Ozkan, Sevgi; Koseler, Refika; Baykal, Nazife (null; 2008-12-01)
A considerable amount of research has been conducted on evaluating success of information systems. However, there has been little research addressing the conceptualization and measurement of elearning systems success within educational organizations. Evaluation of information systems within the growing e-learning sector is currently receiving attention, and this research study proposes a conceptual e-learning assessment model, HELAM (Hexagonal e-Learning Assessment Model). HELAM has been applied to 23 e-lea...
Bridging the gap between theory and practice through engaging teacher candidates in research
Seferoğlu, Gölge (2018-10-12)
Teacher candidates may have anxiety in relation to conducting research stemming from either their lack of research knowledge and skills or their lack of research experience which may result in their developing an avoidance strategy towards research throughout their career. In order to break down potential barriers to holding a positive attitude towards teacher research, positive experiences and support are essential. Therefore, during their undergraduate education teacher candidates should be encouraged to ...
