Validity of science items in the student selection test in Turkey
Uygun , Nazlı; Berberoğlu, Halil Giray; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2008)
This thesis presents content-related and construct-related validity evidence for science sub-tests within Student Selection Test (SST) in Turkey via underlying the content, cognitive processes, item characteristics, factorial structure, and group differences based on high school type. A total number of 126,245 students were present in the research from six type of school in the data of SST 2006. Reliability Analysis, Item Analysis, Principle Component Analysis (PCA) and one-way ANOVA have been carried out t...

Şen, Şenol; Yılmaz, Ayhan; Geban, Ömer (2018-06-01)
Bu çalışmanın amacı, lise öğrencilerinin elektrokimya konusundaki kavramsal anlamalarını belirlemek amacıyla üç aşamalı bir kavram testi geliştirmek, güvenirlik ve geçerlik çalışmalarını yapmaktır. Çalışmaya 268 lise öğrencisi katılmıştır. Öğrencilerin, yaşları 16-20 arasında değişmektedir. Çalışmada üç aşamadan oluşan 29 soruluk bir test kullanılmıştır. Kapsam ve görünüş geçerliği için uzman görüşü alınmıştır. Madde analizlerini yapmak için testin toplam puanlarına göre alt %27 ve üst %27’lik gruplar belir...
Investigation of students probabilistic misconceptions
Mut, Ali İhsan; Bulut, Safure; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2003)
The purpose of the study was to investigate the students̕ probabilistic misconceptions with respect to grade level, previous instruction on probability and gender. The sample of the study was 885 students from different types of the schools (general high schools, private collages, Anatolian high school, vocational high schools, and elementary schools) and from grade levels (5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10). The sample represented a range of students with respect to socio-economic level and cultural background. To coll...
Developing a three-tier test to assess high school students' misconceptions concerning force and motion
Türker, Fatma; Eryılmaz, Ali; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2005)
The purpose of this study is to develop a three-tier test for assessing high school students̕ misconceptions concerning force and motion. The first tier is a traditional multiple choice item, the second tier presents several alternatives addressing the reason for the response for the first tier, and the third tier asks if examinees are confident for their responses to the first two tiers. In the process of test development, Force and Motion Test Requesting Reasoning was developed and utilized to determine t...
A marginalized multilevel model for bivariate longitudinal binary data
Inan, Gul; İlk Dağ, Özlem (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-06-01)
This study considers analysis of bivariate longitudinal binary data. We propose a model based on marginalized multilevel model framework. The proposed model consists of two levels such that the first level associates the marginal mean of responses with covariates through a logistic regression model and the second level includes subject/time specific random intercepts within a probit regression model. The covariance matrix of multiple correlated time-specific random intercepts for each subject is assumed to ...
