  • Development of a Scale to Evaluate Virtual Learning Environment
           Satisfactionn

    • Authors: Nazire Burcin Hamutoglu, Orhan Gemikonakli, Merve Savasci, Gozde Sezen Gultekin
      Pages: 201 - 222
      Abstract: Recent advances in information and communication technologies (ICT) have resulted in improvements in the delivery of education. It is a well-known fact thatlearning technologies currently have a pivotal role in education. Amongst them, Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) are widely used in education. The role of VLEs in improving quality and interaction in education as well as enabling better achievement through the use of a wealth of activities in teaching and learning is widely reported in the literature. However, there is a gap regarding the development of measurement instruments, especially in the Turkish context. Therefore, this study reports the development of a scale to evaluate students’ satisfaction with respect to the use of VLEs in educational settings to address this gap. The dimensions of the scale are contribution (CONT), satisfaction (SAT), and communication (COM), and the scale is formed of 13 items. The sample consists of students enrolled in the Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technologies, studying on blended and face-to-face learning programs. First, the reliability of the instrument was calculated by Cronbach Alpha coefficient and test-retest reliability correlation coefficient. The Cronbach Alpha coefficients were found to be 0.87, 0.83, and 0.81 for CONT, SAT, and COM sub-dimensions respectively. The overall reliability of the scale was 0.92. EFA and CFA were conducted on the data collected from two different sample groups (206 and 186 students for EFA and CFA respectively) for the validity analyses of the scale. Results confirm that the scale is valid and reliable. While the t-test analysis shows no significant difference between gender groups, ANOVA revealed significant differences when year of study is considered.

  • Analysis of the Relationship between University Students’ Problematic
           Internet Use and Loneliness

    • Authors: Mustafa Tevfik Hebebci, Mack Shelley
      Pages: 223 - 234
      Abstract: The computer is part of the information and communication age, and the Internet today is the most used communication tool. Studies have shown that there is a relationship between problematic Internet use and loneliness. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between problematic Internet use sub-scales and loneliness. In this study, data were collected from the college students at an Anatolian University in Turkey. The participants of this study consisted of 392 undergraduates. Of the participants, 43% are male (n = 167) and 57% female (n = 225). The average age for the participants is 22 years old. The Problematic Internet Use Scale and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Loneliness Scale were used as data collection instruments. In the present study, structural equation modeling (SEM) procedures are used to explore the relationships that exist among the variables.  The findings of the study revealed that while university students’ social benefit/social comfort of Internet has a direct effect on their excessive Internet use and negative consequences, it is related to the loneliness level indirectly. In addition, it is seen in the research model that with an increase in the negative consequences of the Internet, the loneliness level was raised. Another result from the study is that when university students’ excessive Internet use increased, their loneliness level decreased.

  • Reliability, Validity and Turkish Adaptation of Self-Directed Learning
           Scale (SDLS)

    • Authors: Zeynep Işıl Buzlu, Burak Öğe, Emine Ezgi Fuçular, Tuğçe Çevik, Merve Denizci Nazlıgül, Erol Ozcelik
      Pages: 235 - 247
      Abstract: Self-Directed Learning Scale (SDLS) developed by Lounsbury, Levy, Park, Gibson, and Smith (2009) was used for determining individuals’ self-directed learning. The purpose of this study was to translate the SDLS into Turkish and to investigate its reliability and validity with a sample of 272 university students. The SDLS, the Modified Schutte Emotional Intelligence Scale (MSEIS), Self-Directed Learning Inventory (SDLI), and the Causal Uncertainty Scale (CUS) for determining convergent validity was applied to the participants. Factor analyses results verified the uni-dimensionality of the scale. The test–retest correlation of SDLS was 0.82, whereas Cronbach alpha coefficient of the scale was founded as 0.85 in the reliability analyses. Correlation coefficients representing for convergent validities varied from -0.30 to 0.72 (p < .01) and criterion validity of the scale was determined as0.236 when cumulative GPA was used as criterion in the assessment of concurrent validity. The findings suggest that the Turkish adaptation of SDLS is a valid and reliable tool to measure self-directed learning in Turkish samples.

  • An Iterative Method for Empirically-Based Q-Matrix Validation

    • Authors: Ragip Terzi, Jimmy de la Torre de la Torre
      Pages: 248 - 262
      Abstract: In cognitive diagnosis modeling, the attributes required for each item are specified in the Q-matrix. The traditional way of constructing a Q-matrix based on expert opinion is inherently subjective, consequently resulting in serious validity concerns. The current study proposes a new validation method under the deterministic inputs, noisy “and” gate (DINA) model to empirically validate attribute specifications in the Q-matrix. In particular, an iterative procedure with a modified version of the sequential search algorithm is introduced. Simulation studies are conducted to compare the proposed method with existing parametric and nonparametric methods. Results show that the new method outperforms the other methods across the board. Finally, the method is applied to real data using fraction-subtraction data.

  • Effects of Various Simulation Conditions on Latent-Trait Estimates: A
           Simulation Study

    • Authors: Hakan Kogar
      Pages: 263 - 273
      Abstract: The aim of this simulation study, determine the relationship between true latent scores and estimated latent scores by including various control variables and different statistical models. The study also aimed to compare the statistical models and determine the effects of different distribution types, response formats and sample sizes on latent score estimations. 108 different data bases, comprised of three different distribution types (positively skewed, normal, negatively skewed), three response formats (three-, five- and seven-level likert) and four different sample sizes (100, 250, 500, 1000) were used in the present study. Results show that, distribution types and response formats, in almost all simulations, have significant effect on determination coefficients. When the general performance of the models are evaluated, it can be said that MR and GRM display a better performance than the other models. Particularly in situations when the distribution is either negatively or positively skewed and when the sample size is small, these models display a rather good performance.

    • Authors: Muharrem Gencer, Türkay Nuri Tok, Aydan Ordu
      Pages: 274 - 288
      Abstract: While organizations have a power struggle with their environment and with other organizations in the globalised world, employees who are the most important resource of the organization also have power struggle among themselves. To be successful in this power struggle, employees, especially managers, use a number of political games in the organization. Developing the scale of power base games that school principles use is the aim of this study to detemine how and how much school principles use power base games in schools which are educational organizations. The sample of this study consists of 213 teachers working in Yeşilova and Karamanlı districts of Burdur city in 2015-2016 educational year. In the evaluation of the scale by authorities, Lawshe technique was used and then, Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) and Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) were used. After the analyses, it was found that this scale is a reliable and valid measurement tool which consists of 41 items and six dimensions as sponsorship, making alliance building, empire building, budgeting, expertise and lording.

  • The Effects of Dynamic Criteria Mapping Assessment on Students’
           Conceptions and Writing Skills Development

    • Authors: Amare Tesfie Birhan
      Pages: 289 - 300
      Abstract: Learner center assessment procedure and application is very crucial for students writing skills improvement. Hence, this study aimed to explore the effects of dynamic criteria mapping assessment on students’ conceptions and writing skills development with reference to Vygotsky, zone of proximity development. To examine the issues, time series, quasi experimental research design was employed. The major data gathering tools were pre and post-tests, questionnaire and focus group discussion. Multistage sampling technique was employed to choose the sample of the study, and 63 first year software engineering students were the subjects of the study. Among these participants, 32 students were assigned to experimental group and the other 31 students’ were assigned to control group. The findings indicated that dynamic criteria mapping assessment was effective in improving students writing skills development; students were able to construct sentence with better text structure and arguments. Furthermore, they used various cohesive devices, appropriate punctuation marks and dictions in their writing. Moreover, the assessment techniques had changed their conceptions on learning writing skills and engagment in writing assessment. Generally, the researcher learned that dynamic criteria mapping assessment strategy was vital to enhance students writing skills and conceptions on learning writing skills. Lastly, it is recommended that teachers should prepare various and dynamic criteria with their respective students while they assess their students writing skills, and teachers should not use judgmental assessment techniques.

  • Data Fit Comparison of Mixture Item Response Theory Models and Traditional
           Models

    • Authors: Seher Yalçın
      Pages: 301 - 313
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to determine the best IRT model [Rasch, 2PL, 3PL, 4PL and mixed IRT (2 and 3PL)] for the science and technology subtest of the Transition from Basic Education to Secondary Education (TEOG) exam, which is carried out at national level, it is also aimed to predict the item parameters under the best model. This study is a basic research as it contributes to the information production which is fundamental for test development theories. The study group of the research is composed of 5000 students who were randomly selected from students who participated in TEOG exam in 2015. The analyses were carried out on 17 multiple choice items in TEOG science and technology subtest. When model fit indices were evaluated the MixIRT model with two parameters and three latent classes was found to fit the data best. According to this model, when the difficulties and discrimination averages of the items are taken into account, it can be expressed that items are moderately difficult and discriminative for students in latent class-1; the items are considerably easy and able to slightly distinguish the students in  latent class-2; the items are difficult to the students in the third latent class and they can slightly distinguish the students in this group.

  • The Use of Three-Option Multiple Choice Items for Classroom Assessment

    • Authors: Erkan Hasan Atalmış
      Pages: 314 - 324
      Abstract: Although multiple-choice items (MCIs) are widely used for classroom assessment, designing MCIs with sufficient number of plausible distracters is very challenging for teachers. In this regard, existing empirical studies reveal that using three-option MCIs provides various advantages when compared to four-option MCIs due to less preparation and administration time. This study examines how different elimination methods to reduce four-option MCIs to three-option MCIs influences test reliability, item discrimination, and item difficulty. The research findings have revealed that they did not harm test reliability and item discrimination, except for item difficulty. Results are discussed in relation to promote quality classroom assessment.

  • Measurement Invariance of Science Self-Efficacy Scale in PISA

    • Authors: Nermin Kıbrıslıoğlu Uysal, Çiğdem Akın Arıkan
      Pages: 325 - 338
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to find out whether the science self-efficacy scale in PISA 2006 and PISA 2015 applications ensure measurement invariance. Sample of the study consists of 4791 students in PISA 2006 and 5071 students in PISA 2015 implementation. Multi-group Confirmatory Factor Analysis (MGCFI) was performed to determine invariance of the science self-efficacy scale across year and gender. The analyses were concudted in SPSS and Lisrel programs. Invariance stages were examined (ΔCF and ΔTL) by means of the comparıson of fit indexes. The results of the study indicated that the science self-efficacy scale satisfied all stages of invariance by gender both in 2006 and 2015. Also only structural and metric invariance was provided for both genders across years. Configural invariance, metric invariance and scalar invariance were satisfied for the total group across years.
