Life and value orientations of Turkish University students

Cileli, M
Tezer, Esin
This study investigated the value orientations of optimists and pessimists and the value structures of each group. The Life Orientation Test and the Rokeach Value Survey were administered to 285 university students in Ankara, Turkey. Results indicated that there were differences in the value orientations of optimists and pessimists. The examination of value structures of optimists and pessimists revealved that optimists were likely to give priority to self-expansion, while pessimists tended toward self-restriction.

This study presents a technique for reducing the bias induced by arbitrary initial conditions in some discrete simulation studies. The technique relies on compensating the existing bias in a run by purposely introducing a deviation in the counter-direction during the subsequent run. Specifically, after obtaining a sample with initial condition X0, an antithetic companion run is generated starting from (2X̄ - X0). This introduces an adjustment equal and opposite to the indicated deviation, as measured by the...
Validation of the mathematical knowledge for teaching statistics instrument
Mercimek, Oktay; Erbaş, Ayhan Kürşat (2017-01-01)
The purpose of this study is to assess preserviceteachers’ mathematical knowledge forteaching statistics (MKT-S) and identify the relationship between the components of this knowledge. For this purpose, MKT-S instrument consisting of two dimensions, ‘content knowledge’ (CK) and ‘pedagogical content knowledge’ (PCK) was developed, and applied to659 preservice middle school mathematics teachers (PTs). Confirmatory factor analysis showed that CK and PCK are two different dimensions of mathematical knowledge of...

Performance outcomes of interorganizational trust in buyer-seller relationships: the case of the relationship between a pharmacy and a drug wholesaler
Şengün, Ayşe Elif; Wasti Pamuksuz, Syeda Nazlı; Department of Business Administration (2005)
This study examines the performance outcomes of interorganizational trust using both qualitative and quantitative methods. Using qualitative data from four informants and drawing on the literature on trust, we define interorganizational trust and derive a model of its outcomes. Regression analysis results indicate that trust is negatively related to transaction costs and positively related to cooperation, conflict resolution, satisfaction, and risk taking tendency. Dependence has a moderating effect on trus...
STAR models : An Application to Turkish Inflation and Exchange Rates
Yıldırım, Dilem; Öcal, Nadir; Department of Economics (2004)
The recent empirical literature has shown that the dynamic generating mechanism of macroeconomic variables can be asymmetric. Inspiring from these empirical results, this thesis uses a class of nonlinear models called smooth transition autoregressive models to investigate possible asymmetric dynamics in inflation and nominal exchange rate series of Turkey. Estimation results imply that variables under consideration contain strong nonlinearities and these can be modeled by STAR models.
