Two-tier tests are such as assessment tools that can make available for teachers/researchers to determine students alternative conceptions and whether a student gives a correct response to a question by understanding the related subject since the secondtier of a test asks for a reason for the first-tier response. The purpose of this study was to develop a valid and reliable three-tier diagnostic test to assess students’ understanding of acids-bases concepts. For developing this test, interviews and open-ended questions were administered to high school students and related literature was reviewed; the findings obtained from these steps construct the three-tier test.

Kaya, Kadir Yucel; Çağıltay, Kürşat (2017-01-01)
The purpose of this study was to deduct guidelines from an introductory programming course to understand the critical points based on the opinions of the students. These critical points could be a guide for future course designs. An introductory visual programming course was designed for novice learners during 2014, fall term at Middle East Technical University, Turkey. Qualitative data were collected with interviews and observations. From the interviews, five themes emerged: communication, computational th...
Development and application of a four-tier test to assess pre-service physics teachers' misconceptions about geometrical optics
Kaltakci-Gurel, Derya; Eryılmaz, Ali; MCDERMOTT, Lillian Christie (2017-06-01)
Background: Correct identification of misconceptions is an important first step in order to gain an understanding of student learning. More recently, four-tier multiple choice tests have been found to be effective in assessing misconceptions.Purpose: The purposes of this study are (1) to develop and validate a four-tier misconception test to assess the misconceptions of pre-service physics teachers (PSPTs) about geometrical optics, and (2) to assess and identify PSPTs' misconceptions about geometrical optic...

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...
Assessment in the 5th grade mathematics classrooms: a case study of the teachers’ practices
Uçar Sarımanoğlu, Nihan; Çakıroğlu, Erdinç; Department of Elementary Education (2016)
The purpose of this study was to examine the mathematics teachers’ assessment practices in the 5th grades. In that manner, it was aimed to figure out the mathematics teachers’ classroom assessment procedures and their use of the assessment results. It was also aimed to understand teachers’ views about the students’ learning of mathematics, the factors affecting teaching mathematics, and their views about assessing students’ learning of mathematics. In order to achieve these purposes, a multiple case study d...
