Common content knowledge (CCK) is comprised of the knowledge of rules, techniques, and tactics and can be used to define the scope of what teachers teach in their lessons. Developing reliable and valid measures of teacher knowledge such as CCK strengthens our understanding of what teachers know and in turn the field's ability to help teachers in their practice. There are, however, few validated tests of CCK of sport for teachers. The primary purpose of this study was to provide content and concurrent validi...
A power comparison and simulation study of goodness-of-fit tests
Sürücü, Barış (Elsevier BV, 2008-09-01)
We give the results of a comprehensive simulation Study Of the power properties of prominent goodness-of-fit tests. For testing the normal N(mu, sigma(2)), we propose a new omnibus goodness-of-fit statistic C which is a combination of the Shapiro-Wilk statistic W and the correlation statistic R. We show that the test of normality based on C is overall more powerful than other prominent goodness-of-fit tests and is effective against boil) symmetric as well as skew alternatives. We also show that the null dis...
A test of Hirschi's social bonding theory - A comparison of male and female delinquency
Oezbay, Oezden; Oezcan, Yusuf Ziya (2008-04-01)
In this study, Hirschi's social bonding theory is employed to identify what aspects of the theory can explain male and female delinquency and whether social bonding variables can equally explain male and female delinquency (generalizability problem) in a developing society, Turkey. The data include a two-stage-stratified cluster sample of 1,710 high school students from the central districts of Ankara, the capital of Turkey. The findings suggest that social bonding variables play a more important role for m...
A Causal Model of Students Achievement in an Introductory Mechanics Course
Eryılmaz, Ali (1999-01-01)
The purpose of this study is to find out the factors affecting students' achievement in introductory mechanics by employing the Factorial Modeling (FaM) procedure by using Statistical Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS) program. The subjects were 30 preservice physics teachers at Middle East Technical University (METU). Data were collected from Mechanics Diagnostic test, Science Logic test, and the information in the students' files at the METU registration office. This study had seven variates; (i) student...
