This study aimed to examine freshmen and senior college students' episodic and semantic memory use in classroom context regarding short and long time delays and college experience level. Data were collected in 2014 and 2017, right after students' final exams (T1) and 5 weeks later (T2). Students were given exemplar questions from their final exams and asked whether they remembered a specific learning episode (episodic memory), if they knew the information (semantic memory), or they guessed the answer while answering exam questions. Senior students in 2017 were asked the same set of questions that they had answered in 2014 as T3. The analyses revealed that the ratio of remember responses to all types of responses decreased within 3 years, whereas know ratio remained stable. Moreover, remember‐to‐know shift occurred only for senior students. This study is important for demonstrating endurance of semantic memory longitudinally, and salience of college experience level cohort sequentially.

Elibol, Nur; Şahin Acar, Başak; Department of Psychology (2014)
The aim of this thesis was to examine the role of episodic and semantic memory on exam performance, while considering type of the question and age at two time points; right after the exam and five weeks later. Freshmen and senior students were asked to complete a questionnaire consisted of exemplar questions from final exams, and they were asked whether they remembered the specific learning episode corresponding to episodic memory, or they knew the information without remembering the learning episode corres...
The effect of multiple intelligences based instruction on students physics achievement
Gürçay, Deniz; Eryılmaz, Ali; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2003)
The main purpose of this study is to compare the effects of the Multiple Intelligences based instruction versus traditional instruction on ninth grade students' physics achievement. MI inventory, Attitude Scale Toward the Content أCoulomb̕s Lawؤ, Multiple Choice Physics Achievement test on the content أCoulomb̕s Lawؤ, and MI based Physics Achievement rubric were used as measuring tools. The study was conducted with 268 ninth grade public high school students in Sincan district in the spring semester 2002-20...
The Impact of The Metacognitive 7E Learning Cycle on Students Epistemological Understandings
Yerdelen Damar, Sevda; Eryılmaz, Ali (2016-03-01)
This study investigated the effect of metacognitively stimulated 7E learning cycle on tenth grade students’ epistemological understandings in physics. The participants of the study included 107 (49 Female, 58 Male) tenth grade students at two public high schools in Ankara. A quasi-experimental with matching-only pretest-posttest control group design was employed. Two intact classes of each school were randomly assigned to the experimental and control group. The experimental group was instructed based on the...
