Tandoğan, Buket; Delialioğlu, Ömer; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2019)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of instructional materials which were developed regarding ARCS model of motivational design and enhanced with augmented reality (AR) on students’ vocabulary achievement and motivation while learning ESP vocabulary in the field of engineering. The study was conducted at the School of Foreign Languages, Gazi University with 67 upper-intermediate level students for a 6-week period. The experimental group learned ESP vocabulary with ARCS based instructi...
Investigating the Impact of Long-term Professional development through Teacher Evaluation
Oktay, Özlem; Eryılmaz, Ali (Nesibe Aydın Education Inst, 2020-9-8)
Educational reform efforts support professional development (PD) programs for teachers as a means to establishing possible outcomes that may affect changing teacher practices, student learning, and impact on economic and educational foundations. PD programs require evaluation in order to appraise their effectiveness, and seeking participant opinion following program implementation is one such valid method. The aim of the current study is to determine in-service physics teachers' evaluation about the impact ...

Sarıcı, Esra; Kondakçı, Esen (null; 2016-04-17)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the contribution of goal orientations to 11th grade students’ understanding in chemical equilibrium concepts. A total of 321 11th grade students (177 females, 138 males, and 6 not mentioned gender) participated in the study. Data were collected using Chemical Equilibrium Concept Test and Achievement Goal Questionnaire. Chemical Equilibrium Concept Test consisted of 18 items in multiple-choice formats. It mainly measured students’ comprehension of dynamic nature o...
Investigating the performance of segmentation methods with deep learning models for sentiment analysis on turkish informal texts
Kurt, Fatih; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Information Systems (2018)
This work investigates segmentation approaches for informal short texts in morphologically rich languages in order to e ectively classify the sentiment. The two building blocks of the proposed work in this thesis are segmentation and deep neural network model building. Segmentation focuses on preprocessing of text with di erent methodologies. These methodologies are grouped under four distinct approaches; namely, morphological, sub-word, tokenization, and hybrid approaches. There is mostly multiple numbers ...
