Evaluating the Effectiveness of the Chemistry Education by Using the Analytic Hierarchy Process

Mehmet Yüksel

Abstract


In this study, an attempt was made to develop a method of measurement and evaluation aimed at overcoming the difficulties encountered in the determination of the effectiveness of chemistry education based on the goals of chemistry education. An Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), which is a multi-criteria decision technique, is used in the present study. The proposed method consists of four main steps: (1) Determination of the main goals and sub-goals of chemistry education; (2) Formation of the AHP model; (3) Making pairwise comparisons and the calculation of local weights; (4) Calculation of global weights and the effectiveness of chemistry education. Research findings indicated that it is possible to determine the effectiveness of chemistry education based on the goals set through the proposed method.
