This chapter considers the relationship between statistical analysis of coding based on theoretical schemes and conversation analysis of VMT participants’ structuring of their chats. It describes how a statistical test on a hypothesis regarding collaboration in VMT showed an unexpected result, whose understanding required the use of qualitative methods. The phenomenon behind the puzzling result was idenepsied using conversation analysis. The chapter explores an approach to coding based on analysis of how sequences of discussion of different topics are defined interactionally by chat participants as accomplishments of their postings. A form of “mixed methods” is proposed using codes for the different sequences and displaying the ordering of these longer sequences of interaction or compiling statistics of these codes.


Combining scaffolding for content and scaffolding for dialogue to support conceptual breakthroughs in understanding probability
Kazak, Sibel; Wegerif, Rupert; Fujita, Taro (2015-11-01)
In this paper, we explore the relationship between scaffolding, dialogue, and conceptual breakthroughs, using data from a design-based research study that focuses on the development of understanding of probability in 10-12 year old students. The aim of the study is to gain insight into how the combination of scaffolding for content using technology and scaffolding for dialogue can facilitate conceptual breakthroughs. We analyse video-recordings and transcripts of pairs and triads of students solving problem...
A marginalized multilevel model for bivariate longitudinal binary data
İnan, Gül; İlk Dağ, Özlem; Department of Statistics (2014)
This thesis 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 assu...
Using data analytics for collaboration patterns in distributed software team simulations
Dafoulas, Georgios A.; Serce, Fatma C.; SWİGGER, Kathleen; BRAZİLE, Robert; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Milewski, Allen (2016-08-05)
This paper discusses how previous work on global software development learning teams is extended with the introduction of data analytics. The work is based on several years of studying student teams working in distributed software team simulations. The scope of this paper is twofold. First it demonstrates how data analytics can be used for the analysis of collaboration between members of distributed software teams. Second it describes the development of a dashboard to be used for the visualization of variou...
Exploring the complexity of teaching: the interaction between teacher self-regulation and pedagogical content knowledge
Kondakçı, Esen; Akın Çelebi, Fatma; Kondakçı, Esen; Aydin-Gunbatar, Sevgi (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2017-01-01)
This study combined two important frameworks-teacher self-regulation and pedagogical content knowledge (PCK)-to reveal whether they were related to each other. To fulfill this aim, researchers utilized a case-study design. Data were collected from five preservice chemistry teachers through semi-structured interviews, lesson plans in the form of content representations, and video recordings of teaching practice. Both deductive and inductive analyses were used to analyze the data. Results indicated that prese...
An expert system for the differential diagnosis of erythemato-squamous diseases
Guvenir, HA; Emeksiz, N (2000-01-01)
This paper presents an expert system for differential diagnosis of erythemato-squamous diseases incorporating decisions made by three classification algorithms: nearest neighbor classifier, naive Bayesian classifier and voting feature intervals-5. This tool enables doctors to differentiate six types of erythemato-squamous diseases using clinical and histopathological parameters obtained from a patient. The program also gives explanations for the classifications of each classifier. The patient records are al...
