  • Development of the Meta-Cognitive Awareness Scale (MAS-EVA) for In-Class
           Teaching and Assessment of Students and Determination of its Psychometric
           Properties

    • Authors: Ali Yiğit KUTLUCA; Somayyeh RADMARD, Yilmaz SOYSAL
      Abstract: The purpose of the present study was to develop a scale that is able describe teachers’ metacognitive awareness for online monitoring and evaluation of their own in-class teaching and students’ intellectual outcomes. The current study was designed as a survey study that was also a scale development study. The participation of 356 teachers from different departments and seniorities working in institutions affiliated to the Ministry of National Education (MNE) in the 2019-2020 academic year was ensured in this study. In this five-step study, firstly the existing literature was scanned and a conceptual and thematic framework was created that would allow the evaluation of the learning-teaching process and the integration of meta-cognitive awareness with a pedagogy. Then, the item pool incorporating 45 expressions in accordance with the established theoretical framework was created and submitted to the experts’ opinion. Expert opinions were evaluated through the Lawshe technique. After taking the experts’ opinions, the final form of the scale incorporating 36 items was administered to the participants and the psychometric properties of the scale were identified. For this, the Cronbach Alpha internal consistency coefficient was calculated by performing exploratory and confirmatory factor analyzes on the data. As a result of analyzes, it was determined that the final form of the scale had a three-factor structure and consisted of 34 items. The sub-factors of the scale are named as follows: monitoring and evaluating in-class teaching activities and their intellectual effectiveness, evaluating the ways followed for the summative assessment of learner outcomes, and metacognitive colleague interaction and exchange of ideas. In addition, the Cronbach Alpha internal consistency coefficient of 0.96 showing the that the developed scale is reliable. The results regarding the psychometric properties of the scale were discussed based on the existing literature and necessary recommendations were presented.

  • An Investigation of the Relationship Among Gender, Social Behavior,
           Temperament Characteristics and False Belief Performances in Preschool
           Children

    • Authors: Nergiz TEKE; Müge ŞEN
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between gender, social behavior, temperament and false belief performances in preschool children. The research study was conducted with the quantitative correlational research method. The sample of the study was 61 children of the 48-72 month age group, selected by means of convenience sampling from a population of children attending public preschools in Ankara in the 2018-2019 academic year. The data of the research study was collected with the Preschool Social Behavior Scale – Teacher Form and Peer Form, the Short Temperament Scale for Children and the False Belief Performance Tasks. As the collected data did not meet the normal distribution conditions, it was analyzed by non-parametric tests. As a result of analysis, it was found that peer based assessment of physical and relational aggression scores were significant for boys. The scores for peer and teacher based assessment of prosocial behavior and total false belief performance was found significant in girls. A high level positively significant relationship between peer based assessment of physical and relational aggression scores was found in the children and also for the teacher based assessment of physical and relational aggression scores. Results showed that the children had a low level positive relationship between approach sub-scale scores and teacher based assessment of relational aggression and a low level positive relationship between the persistence sub-scale scores and peer based assessment of prosocial behavior scores. A low level positive relationship was also found between total false belief performances and prosocial behavior scores. It is thought that while the teacher and children evaluate the social behavior of the child's peer with what they experience in the interaction process, the teacher evaluates the social behavior with his observations, which causes differences in their evaluations as a result of the fact that the peers who are the subject of the interaction and the teacher who is the observer are in different positions and conditions.

  • Tendencies of Representation Studies in Mathematics Education in Turkey: A
           Thematic Content Analysis

    • Authors: Hayrunnisa AYYILDIZ; Meral CANSİZ AKTAS
      Abstract: The aim of this research is to examine the studies made in the context of representation in Turkey between 2002-2020 from a holistic perspective. For this purpose, 41 articles and 53 graduate theses, which are open to access and whose full texts can be accessed, in the YÖK National Thesis Center, Google Scholar search engine, YÖK Academic, TÜBİTAK-ULAKBİM DergiPark and EBSCOhost-ERIC databases related to representation between 2002-2020 are included in the research. These studies were examined in detail according to their publication years, types, research methods used, sample or study groups, aims and results and analyzed with thematic content analysis. According to the findings obtained from the studies examined, it has been seen that there are more studies on representations in recent years, and articles and master's theses are dominant as a genre. Considering the research methods used in the studies, it was determined that the most studies were done with the case study method, which is one of the qualitative methods. As the sample/study group, mostly teacher candidates and middle school students were used in the studies. Most studies have aimed to examine representations in the context of a topic or learning domain. One of the common conclusions of the reviewed studies is that pre-service teachers and students have low ability to transition between different representations of related concepts and topics, and they have difficulties and fail in the process. In line with the results obtained from the studies examined, various suggestions were made for future studies on representation

  • The Views and Practices of Preschool Teachers on Gaining Patterns

    • Authors: Ensar YILDIZ; Berrin AKMAN
      Abstract: In the current study, it was aimed to investigate preschool teachers’ opinions about the process of handling the concept of pattern. To this end, one of the qualitative research methods, the explanatory case study design was used and in the selection of the participants, one of the purposive sampling methods, the criterion sampling method was employed. In the first stage of the current study consisting of two stages, a total of 50 preschool teachers participated while a total of 15 preschool teachers participated in the second stage of the study. In the collection of the data, a semi-structured interview form developed by the researchers was used. In the analysis of the collected data, as in the qualitative data analysis methods, content analysis and two cases analysis were conducted in the MAXQDA Analytics Pro 2018 (18. 2. 5) program. As a result of the study, it was determined that the preschool teachers used only the repeated pattern type while handling the concept of pattern. It was also found that they only used colour, number, shape and object patterns from among the repeated pattern types and that they used the instructional methods of demonstrating and having students do, presentation and play while handling the concept of pattern. Moreover, while planning the activities, the teachers were found to include large group activities to the greatest extent. As a result of the study, it was concluded that the preschool teachers’ level of knowledge about the subject of patterns is insufficient and that while handling the concept of pattern, they mostly used legos, wooden blocks, worksheets and toys. The resources most frequently used by the preschool teachers while planning their daily schedule were found to be the online resources while the resources least frequently used by the preschool teachers were found to the preschool teaching activity pool, the opinions of their colleagues, the knowledge they retained from their undergraduate years, and the ready-to-use printed materials. In-service training, on-the-job training or coaching are suggested by field experts in line with the needs of teachers through the cooperation with universities and the Ministry of National Education.

  • Investigation of the Effect of Augmented and Virtual Reality Applications
           in E-Learning on Students' Use of Microscopes

    • Authors: Zennure ABDÜSSELAM; Sinan ERTEN
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of applications developed with augmented and virtual reality technologies on subjects that require the use of microscopes in the e-learning process in science lessons on students' academic achievement, course engagement and self-efficacy beliefs in microscope use. The research was conducted in a quasi-experimental design with three groups, two experimental and one control. In this process, the teaching practices towards the control group (CG) were conducted with the use of the course presentations prepared by the researchers and the content of the Education Information Network related to the subjects covered in the research. While the students in the augmented reality experimental group (AREG) were taught with the same course presentations and augmented reality microscope application (MikrosAR), the students in the virtual reality experimental group (VREG) were taught with the same course presentations and virtual reality microscope application (MikrosAR2). In the study, data were collected through an academic achievement test, a scale of self-efficacy belief in microscope use, a course engagement scale and an observation form. The relationship between pre-test and post-test scores was performed using Kruskal–Wallis one-way analysis of variance. Observation data obtained from learning environments were calculated as frequency and presented by digitizing. Correlation analysis was applied to determine the relationship levels of the variables discussed in the study. According to the results, it was seen that there was no significant difference between the groups in terms of academic achievement, and all the materials used in the groups related to the subject had an equal effect on the students in the e-learning environment. Furthermore, it was observed that students in VREG had significantly higher self-efficacy beliefs in microscope use than students in AREG, therefore, the use of virtual reality technology in the e-learning environment had a positive effect on students' self-efficacy beliefs in microscope use. In addition, it was concluded that the students had a high level of productive interaction in practices, and no difference was observed between the groups in their participation in class. Moreover, it can be stated that course engagement in the e-learning environment is effective on the academic achievement of the student.

  • The Reflections of Parents of Children Studying Human and Environment Unit
           in the Subject of Science in Out-of-School Learning Environments

    • Authors: Arzu KÜÇÜK; Nagihan YILDIRIM
      Abstract: This study aimed to examine the views of the parents of children who have studied the human and environmental unit of the science lesson outside of school for five weeks. The study used a phenomenology method, one of the qualitative research methods, and the research group consisted of 22 parents of students whose children were taught in out-of-school learning environments. The data collected through semi-structured interviews by appointment in two weeks after the out-of-school teaching intervention, which lasted five weeks. It was analyzed through content analysis, one of the qualitative data analysis methods. In these data, the parents, who initially approved of the implementation of studies with positive expectations, directly referred to the fact that their children displayed a large number of qualities in the home environment that support the cognitive and affective gains reported in other studies. In this context, it was concluded that the views of parents with a well-structured out-of-school science teaching process for the first time were quite rich. This study revealed that out-of-school teaching can be used as an effective tool for parent-school cooperation.

  • Evaluation of Analogies in Science Textbooks

    • Authors: Mücahit KÖSE
      Abstract: This research aims to evaluate analogies in science textbooks. A qualitative research design was adopted to achieve this goal and in accordance, document analysis method was used. The sampled text consisted of 13 science textbooks which were approved and recognized as textbooks by the Ministry of Education. These textbooks were commonly used textbooks in primary and secondary schools in the 2020-2021 academic year. Thus, the 13 sampled science textbooks were actively used in science courses all around Turkey during the academic year this research was conducted. The books were analyzed by two experts and analogies were determined. By using an analysis form the analogies were categorized in terms of the relationship between the source and the target, the way of presentation, the concretion level, the link state of the source, the level of wealth, pre-topic orientation and the definition of the limitations. According to the findings of the research, it was determined that the analogies in the books are mostly structural, verbal, concrete-concrete, embedded activating, and simple types and in most of them, there are no definitions of limitation. Living things and life learning subject area among the learning areas has been the subject area where the most analogies are determined. Also the findings showed that the analogies take place in different intensities in the learning subject areas. It was concluded that analogies are concentrated within certain number of lesson hours within the suggested number of lesson hours in the curriculum, and much fewer analogies are included in some number of lesson hours. In science texts under the topic ‘world and universe’, the analogies related to ‘world’ were the most common. On the other hand, under the rest of the topics analogies related to DNA, cell, atom, and battery were commonly observed. It was concluded that there are a limited number of analogies in terms of the variety in which some simple analogies are used repeatedly. It is seen that 140 analogies in the textbooks are formed within the scope of 76 different target concepts.

  • Applications Based on Atomic Supported Holistic Approach Fostering The
           Modeling Competencies of Preservice Mathematics Teachers

    • Authors: Zeynep ÇAKMAK GÜREL; Ahmet IŞIK
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to reveal how the learning environment, which includes mathematical modelling applications based on the atomic supported holistic approach, fosters the modelling competencies of mathematics pre-service teachers. The action research method was used in the study. The study group consists of a total of 32 preservice mathematics teachers, 17 of whom attended the learning environment and 15 not participating. As the data collection tools, two modelling situations were applied to the pre-service teachers individually before and after attending the environment. The data is examined with the content analysis method. The modelling competencies of the preservice teacher who participated and did not participate in the environment were qualitatively compared to determine whether the development occurred due to the learning environment. It was determined that the mathematical modelling competencies of preservice teachers participating in the learning environment improved. It has been determined that this increase is mostly in model creation, model solving, and interpretation competencies. On the contrary, it was revealed that the learning environment did not contribute to the validation competence.

  • The Effects of Argumentation-supported 5E Learning Method on the Level of
           Learners’ Use of Argumentation Components and on Their Opinions About
           Argumentation

    • Authors: Nilgün TATAR; Zeynep DEMİR
      Abstract: The aim of the study is to identify the effects of argumentation-supported 5E learning method on learners’ use of argumentation components and their opinions about argumentation. The study adopted case study design with the participation of 20 seventh-grade learners. The participant learners studied topics related to the environment through inquiry and argumentation-based activities. They were delivered worksheets that include argumentation strategies based on 5E learning method. The participant learners discussed topics on the environment with their peers in groups and prepared written arguments. The argumentation components used in these written arguments were analysed descriptively. The findings indicate that the activities increased the level of the learners’ use of argumentation strategies. The strategy that the participants found the most difficult in using was found to be competing theories-cartoons. In this strategy, the learners produced quality arguments by using all the argumentation components. The strategy that the learners found the most difficult was creating arguments based on scenarios. When discussing the situations in the scenarios, the participants had difficulties especially in using the argumentation components such as qualifier and rebuttal. In order to determine the opinions of the learners on the argumentation, pre and post-interviews were held with three learners who differed in their willingness to participate in the discussion. The findings obtained from the interviews show that the participant learners' views on argumentation improved after the implementations were conducted. In the last interview, the participants defined argumentation by referring to the argumentation components. The participants who described the argumentation process as difficult and/or boring in the pre-interview stated that the process was easy and fun after the implementations. When the views of the three learners’ from different willingness were compared, it was determined that the learners with the lowest willingness to participate in the argumentations developed the most. Based on the findings, it is suggested that inquiry and argumentation-based activities should be included in the teaching of environmental issues.

  • The Use of Listening Skills with Vignette in Teaching Turkish as A Foreign
           Language: Example C1

    • Authors: Sefa TOPRAK; Enes YAŞAR
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to observe the applicability of the vignette technique in teaching Turkish as a foreign language and to reveal the transferability of cultural and universal values to international students with the created listening texts. It is also to show that students can use their language skills actively with the vignette technique. For this reason, two short stories created with the vignette technique were presented to international students at C1 level in the form of listening texts. The students participating in the study listened to the texts containing cultural and universal values and answered the questions posed to them. In the study, the scanning model, one of the qualitative research methods, was used. The data of the research were obtained by giving listening texts to 10 different students from 10 different countries. In data collection, vignette technique called short stories was used. In this context, students developed their active listening skills with the vignette technique; It has been determined that they can express their thoughts and comments more easily. The main factor here is that in the study, listening texts were presented to the students in which they could express their thoughts both with their language skills and their knowledge, and experience. Moving from this direction, it can be stated that the contribution of a listening text developed with the vignette technique in the study to the student is not only to improve his language level but also to contribute to the placement of the gains desired to be given by the teacher. As a result, it can be argued that these values are successfully transferred with the vignette technique since it is of great importance to teach social values and cultural elements in order to teach Turkish as a foreign language successfully.

           Communication Skills on Life Satisfaction in Teacher Candidates

    • Authors: Bünyamin ATEŞ; Mehmet Enes SAĞAR
      Abstract: In this study, the predictive role of psychological flexibility, self-efficacy, and communication skills variables on teacher candidates’ life satisfaction was examined. The research group consisted of a total of 438 teacher candidates, 175 (40%) male, and 263 (60%) female, studying at the education faculties of different universities in Turkey in the 2021 - 2022 academic year. “Life Satisfaction Scale, “Psychological Flexibility Scale”, “General Self-Efficacy Scale”, “Communication Skills Scale” and “Personal Information Form” were used as data collection tools. As a result of the examination of the data obtained from the teacher candidates in the study, it was determined that the data were suitable for “multiple linear regression analysis (stepwise)”. In this context, the analysis of the research data was carried out with the “multiple linear regression analysis (stepwise) method”. In the study, it was concluded that there was a significant positive correlation between life satisfaction and psychological flexibility, self-efficacy, and communication skills, and that psychological flexibility, self-efficacy, and communication skills variables were significant predictors of life satisfaction variable. The variables of psychological flexibility, self-efficacy, and communication skills together explain approximately 32% of the total variance regarding life satisfaction of teacher candidates. It was observed that “psychological flexibility” in the first place, “self-efficacy” in the second place, and “communication skills” in the third place predicted the life satisfaction of teacher candidates significantly.

      Abstract: Socioscientific issues, which we encounter more and more frequently, will gain much more importance in the coming years. Socioscientific issues have many topics that individuals will experience decision-making processes in the future. Adequate knowledge of the concepts lies at the basis of the decision-making process. The aim of this study is to develop a two-tier diagnostic test to identify misconceptions in socioscientific issues and to study the validity and reliability of this test. In this scale, which was developed in the mixed method, there are questions about energy resources, global warming, genetic engineering and cloning. In order to develop the two-tier test, a process consisting of three basic stages was carried out: determining the content, obtaining information about students' misunderstandings, and developing the diagnostic test. The data of the study were collected from eighth and ninth grade students. In order to determine the final version of the scale; the reliability, difficulty and discrimination values were analyzed with the data of 385 students. A test-retest application was also made with the participation of 55 students. The KR-20 value of the 30-item two-tier socioscientific issues concept test developed is 0.85, the average difficulty value is 0.46987, the average discrimination value is 0.497364, and the Pearson Correlation coefficient for test-retest reliability was 0.776. As a result of the study, a valid and reliable two-tier diagnostic test consisting of 30 items that can be used to identify misconceptions in socioscientific issues has been developed

    • Authors: Beyhan CAN; Emine KILINCCI, Perihan Tuğba ŞEKER
      Abstract: This study aims to determine the factors that preschool children attach importance to in their choices of illustrated storybooks. Ninety-four preschool children aged 5-years-old were included in the study. Eleven illustrated storybooks with different characteristics were read to the children. After the reading process, one-on-one and face-to-face interviews were conducted with the children. The interviews were recorded with a voice recorder. Content analysis, one of the qualitative data analysis techniques, was used to analyze the study's data. As a result of the findings obtained, it is stated that the books that children like most contain humorous elements. In general, as a result of the study, it was seen that children like books with humorous elements, whether there is an element of interest in the book affects their preferences for books, they do not want to see vague lines and scary elements in pictures, and they do not prefer stories that have a static plot and do not end with a happy ending. In this direction, it is recommended that parents and educators should consider their wishes and expectations when choosing books for children. It is important to be aware of children's preferences to support their interest in books and reading habits. Book writers and illustrators need to be mindful of the interests and wishes of children. In this direction, it is recommended to introduce children to books containing humorous elements, clear and understandable pictures, a lively plot, and a happy ending.

           Process Skills

    • Authors: Eylem BAYIR; Sibel KAHVECİ
      Abstract: This study was carried out to determine the representation of the activities in the Secondary School (5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade) Science Textbooks in terms of scientific process skills. The study was carried out with the document analysis method, one of the qualitative research methods, and the descriptive analysis method was used in the analysis of the data. In order to determine which process skills the activities in the textbooks aim to develop, 17 scientific process skills were determined as a result of the literature review, and each activity was analyzed according to the definitions in the light of the theoretical framework. In line with the data obtained from the study; it was concluded that while the skills of observing, comparing, communicating, collecting and recording data, estimating, interpreting data were more involved in the activities in the books, the skills of classification, using number/space relations, forming hypotheses, determining variables and making decisions were less involved. In addition, it was determined that the most basic process skills and the least experimental process skills were included in the activities. According to the results of this study, it can be said that in the textbooks to be updated and written in the field of science, improvements should be made in the textbooks by increasing the rates of causal and experimental process skills in the activities, taking into account the cognitive levels of the students according to each grade level.
