EREN CEYLAN, Ph.D.
I have been working as
an Assistant Professor in Ankara University, Faculty of Educational Sciences,
Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics. International comparative
studies like TIMSS, PISA, and PIRLS have attracted my interest and my recent
studies’ main scope is to investigate the factors related to students’ science
achievement in these international studies by using some advanced statistical
techniques such as Linear Structural Modeling, HLM, and IDB Analyzer etc. As a
future plan, I want to develop my skills especially in the area of assessment
in science education to offer an assessment model for Turkey’s science
education curriculum in which students’ competency levels are exhibited.
