An Investigation of eighth grade students' statistical literacy, attitudes towards statistics and thier relationship
Yolcu, Ayşe; Haser, Çiğdem; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2012)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the statistical literacy of 8th grade students and their attitudes towards statistics. Moreover, the relationship between their statistical literacy and attitudes towards statistics was examined. The study was conducted in Yenimahalle district of Ankara in the Spring semester of 2011-2012 academic year. The sample of this study was obtained through cluster random sampling. Nine schools were randomly selected for the study. A total of 1074 eighth grade students in...
Estimation in interval censored data
Bayramoğlu, Könül; Sürücü, Barış; Department of Statistics (2014)
Interval censored failure time data occur in many areas including medicine, economics, zoology, psychology, sociology and engineering. In such studies, the variable of interest is often not exactly observed, but known to fall within some interval. In this thesis, the likelihood functions for fixed and random interval censored data are obtained. Modified Maximum Likelihood and Copula Methods are utilized for the estimation of unknown parameters. Bivariate interval censored data are also considered as a gener...
Assessment of preservice mathematics teachers’ knowledge for teaching statistics
Mercimek, Oktay; Erbaş, Ayhan Kürşat; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2013)
The purpose of this study is to assess preservice teachers’ mathematical knowledge for teaching statistics (MKT-S). For this purpose, MKT-S instrument consisting of two dimensions, ‘content knowledge’ (CK) and ‘pedagogical content knowledge’ (PCK) was developed, and applied to 659 preservice middle school mathematics teachers (PTs). Confirmatory factor analysis showed that CK and PCK are two different dimensions of mathematical knowledge of teaching statistics. It was found that CK factor scores were highly...
Estimation and hypothesis testing in multivariate linear regression models under non normality
İslam, Muhammed Qamarul (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01)
This paper discusses the problem of statistical inference in multivariate linear regression models when the errors involved are non normally distributed. We consider multivariate t-distribution, a fat-tailed distribution, for the errors as alternative to normal distribution. Such non normality is commonly observed in working with many data sets, e.g., financial data that are usually having excess kurtosis. This distribution has a number of applications in many other areas of research as well. We use modifie...
Investigating middle school students’ achievement and strategies in proportional reasoning problems
Yılmaz, Gamze Öze; Akyüz, Didem; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2019)
The aims of the study are to specify the academic achievement of the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade students in proportional reasoning problems, to determine how the academic achievement of these students change according to problem types, to examine their solution strategies in these problems, and to reveal how these strategies diversify from fifth to eighth grade. To collect data in order to achieve these aims, a proportional reasoning test were prepared. The study was designed as a mixed study. I...
