The Twenty Statement Test in Teacher Development
Ahmet Aypay
Turkish Online Journal of Qualitative Inquiry , 2011,
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to describe teacher characteristics using Twenty Statements Test (TST). Study group includes a total of thirty-five individuals, including teachers, guidance and counselors and research assistants. The study used a qualitative approach on teacher identity. TST is one of the qualitative methods that were used to determine individual self-conceptualization. Study group were requested to write twenty statements that describe themselves responding to the question “Who I am?” in a free format. The findings indicated that teachers were overwhelmingly in group c (reflective). No differences were found in terms of gender and profession. Only few significant differences have been found based on marital status. The utility of TST in teacher training and development was discussed.

Munise SE?K?N,?i?dem APAYDIN,Ahmet AYPAY
Yüksek??retim ve Bilim Dergisi , 2012,
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the norms in graduate education based on gender, education level, institution and departments. Th e study group of the present study is composed of 294 graduate students who are currently enrolled in graduate schools from 12 universities (Hacett epe University, Ankara University, Gazi University, Anadolu University, Akdeniz University, Eski ehir Osmangazi University, Dumlup nar University, anakkale Onsekiz Mart University, Pamukkale University, Mersin University, Bülent Ecevit University [formerly Zonguldak Karaelmas University], and Atatürk University) in Turkey. Th e instrument entitled “Norms in Graduate Education” developed by Anderson & Louis (1994) was used. Cronbach's alpha coeff icient for the LEN was 93. Construct validity of mentoring scale was tested with confirmatory factor analysis. Th is analysis was performed with LISREL, and it was found that the model with three primary domains and 10 sub-constructs fits. LEN had dimensions such structured feedback, formality, collaboration, group size, humane, solidarity, value congruence, technical, strategic and personal. Moreover, MANOVA, ANOVA, and corelation analysis were used this study. Th ese dimensions are parts of structure, climate and mentoring. Findings indicated that educational level and department had some infl uence on structure while the institution had an infl uence on climate. Further, significant relationships were found among the study variables.

Eski?ehir Osmangazi üniversitesi Sosyal Bilimler Dergisi , 2011,
Abstract: The main purpose of this research is to adapt an instrument that will help to determine pre-service teachers’ beliefs into Turkish. In the study, pre-service teachers’ epistemological beliefs, relationships among these beliefs, and whether epistemological beliefs differ based on gender, department they study, class levels. The study group included a total of 341 students from anakkale Onsekiz Mart University Faculty of Education and Institute of Social Sciences. For the validity of the instrument, both exploratory and confirmatory factor analyseswere used. In addition to descriptive statistics, correlations, reliability analyses, t-tests, ANOVAs were used. Findings indicated that pre-service teachers’ epistemological beliefs differed based on gender, department they study, class levels and there were significant relationships among the beliefs.
Journal of Theory and Practice in Education , 2009,
Abstract: The Tendency of Imprudent Behavior Scale (TIBS) was developed to measure the tendency of adults’ imprudent behavior. There are a total of fifteen items, of which four of them are short stories and eleven are based on pictures. The lowest score one might get on the TIBS is 15 and the highest is 45. The higher the score, the higher is the tendency to behave imprudently. The data was collected from a total of 504 senior and graduate students at Ankara University Faculty of Educational Sciences as well as anakkale Onsekiz Mart University ( OMü) in the spring and fall semesters of the 2005-2006 academic year. The KMO and Barlett’s Test of Sphericity was .73. The Cronbach Alpha reliability for the whole scale was .76, and the test-retest reliability was also .76. To establish validity, an exploratory factor analysis was carried out. A five-factor structure emerged with Eigen values over 1. Factor loadings ranged from .46 to .85.& 0 % of the variance was explained. In order to establish the predictive validity of TIBS, the Maudsley Obsessive-Compulsive Question List was used. The correlation between these two scales was found to be low (r = -.15, p<.05). The correlation between TIBS and Teenager Risk Taking Scale was medium (r= .43, p<.01). The correlation between TIBS and Temperament and Character Inventory’s (TCI) “Harm Avoidance” dimension was .30. The Cronbach Alpha scores for the dimensions that emerged from the Factor Analysis ranged from .55 to .65. Since the total 15-item Cronbach Alpha was higher than the individual dimensions (.76), this has been used in the analyses.
Relationships of High School Sdutent’ Subjective Well-Being
International Online Journal of Educational Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship of school burnout and subjective well-being for high school students. The study group included a total of 373 high school students [188 female (50.4 %) and 185 male (49.6 %)] aged from 14-17 in the 2010-2011 academic year in three regions of Ankara (Cebeci, Ke i ren and Pursaklar). Secondary School Burnout Scale and Life Satisfaction Scale were used in the study. In addition to descriptive statistics, data analyzed with regressions. Findings indicated that as students’ loss of interest to school and burnout emanated from family increased, their subjective well-being levels were decreased. Regression results pointed out that the following variables were significantly related to motivation to class engagement: Loss of interest to school and burnout emanated from family.
Relationships between Motivation to Class Engagement and Determining Life Goals in High School Students
Journal of Kirsehir Education Faculty , 2011,
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between motivation to class engagement and life goals for adolescents. Study group composed of 218 high school students, aged 14-17 in Ke i ren, Ankara. Data gathered through two instruments: Determining Life Goals in the Context of Positive Psychotherapy and Motivation to Class Engagement Questionnaire. Data was analyzed with descriptive statistics and multiple regression analysis. Findings indicated that high school students were motivated to class engagement when they determine career (success) and body (sense) goals. These two goals explained an important proportion of the variation in the motivation to class engagement. Findings in general indicated that for students determining life goals was important. Thus, life-goals attainment programs may be prepared for high school students. Rest of the findings was compared and contrasted with the findings in the literature.

Mathematical Modelling in Placing of Fresh Concrete  [PDF]
Ahmet Bilgil
Engineering (ENG) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/eng.2011.33023
Abstract: The main problem in working with fresh concrete is the aggregate segregation during filling of formwork. The segregation is strongly related to W/C (Water/Cement) ratio. The fresh concrete is usually considered as a Non-Newtonian fluid since it is a mixture of aggregate, cement and water. The flow behavior of the fresh concrete to W/C ratio plays a crucial role in the quality of the high performance concretes by affecting the flow behavior of the fresh concrete. The aggregates in the fresh concrete usually cause segregation in the final product depending on the flow condition. In this study, the mechanism of segregation in such systems was theoretically investigated. The mould filling of fresh concrete was numerically investigated and aggregates were considered as Lagrangian particles and segregation was identified from trajectories of such particles. It was found that the aggregates were trapped at the dead zones leading to segregation in the system. The particle size and geometry of the mould was found to have significantly affect the segregation in the system.

Ahmet YAPICI, Mehmet METIN
Engineering (ENG) , 2009, DOI: 10.4236/eng.2009.13019
Abstract: The work described herein consists of experimental measurement of the post-impact buckling loads of E- glass/epoxy laminates. Composite samples with stacking sequence of [+45/?45/90/0]2s were subjected to low-velocity impact loading at energy levels of 36, 56.13, 79.95, 110.31 and 144 J. The impact tests were conducted with a specially developed vertical drop weight testing machine. Impact parameters like peak load, absorbed energy, deflection at peak load and damage area were evaluated and compared. Damaged specimens were subjected to compressive axial forces and buckling loads of the specimens were obtained. The relation between energy levels and buckling loads is investigated.
