Statistical model for a binary dependent variable "Logit model" redirects here. It is not to be confused with Logit function. This can be extended to model several classes of events such as determining whether an image contains a cat, dog, lion, etc. Each object being detected in the image would be assigned a probability between 0 and 1 and the sum adding to one.

Hangi bulgulara ve yorumlara yer verilmelidir? This condition of LRA created a must for researchers, editors and readers to have knowledge about the components of LRA. Which assumptions should be provided? Which findings must be tabulated? Which findings and predictions should be included? How detailed results of LRA should be reported? These questions are tried to be answered by investigating ten articles from the field of education that were written between and in Turkish.

This study reveals importance with presenting required knowledge about logistic regression in integrity, describing deficiencies in applications and offering advices for the future researches. Document analysis technique, one of the qualitative research techniques, was used in data analysis. A coding list prepared by researchers to examine articles considering the assumptions of logistic regression analysis, interpretation and reporting of results.

When articles are examined according to the coding list, it was noticed that there are important deficiencies and misunderstandings about accordance of logistic regression analysis with the aim of the research, considering assumptions and reporting and interpretation of findings.

The increase in preference of LRA created a must for researchers, editors and readers to have knowledge about the components of LRA.

Which findings and predictions should be reported? How detailed results of LRA should be represented? To answer all these kinds of questions; it is required to examine studies that uses LRA in a detailed way. In this respect, the aim of this research is to examine educational researches published in Turkey that preferred LRA within the framework of their appropriateness of using LRA as their purpose, data type, reporting styles and interpretation of results.

This study reveals importance with presenting requirements and musts of LRA in a holistic way, describing deficiencies in applications and offering advices for future researches. Method Within this research; ten Turkish educational articles which are published between and that their full text can be accessed electronically were determined for the analysis.

In the selection period of the articles; keyword of "logistic regression" were seek in online published Turkish journals and 30 articles were found. Ten articles that are not just described or represented knowledge about LRA but also used LRA as the main analysis tool were selected.

Instead of making shallow comments on numerous articles, giving detailed critics on small number of articles were preferred to shed more light to the deficiencies or mistakes on LRA and reports that represent results of the LRA. This research is a qualitative one that examines studies used LRA. Content analysis technique used in document analysis.

Codes determined by reviewing the literature about theoretical basis and considering the assumptions of LRA, also new codes were added and some of them were removed in the analysis process of the aforementioned articles. On the process of examining articles; "true, false, incomplete and never mentioned" assessments are used according to the criteria list under the themes. As evidence of reliability, interrater reliability coefficients were calculated as As a result of the study one of the problematic situations with LRA is the misstatement of the research purposes.

However, the main purpose of regression analysis is to establish an acceptable model that defines the relationship between dependent and independent variables; with providing the best fit with the least number of variables.

Results and Discussion Another result is that LRA methods selected for the studies are appropriate for their aim. Just in one of the ten articles; in spite of having a three-category ordinal dependent variable, binary LRA was used instead of ordinal LRA. Another issue mostly seen in articles is that the wrong method usage for variable selection in LRA. Also it is observed that, the assumptions and requirements of LRA was not provided before the analysis or do not reported in a clear way.

This situation creates question marks about the appropriateness of the data for LRA. Especially, assumption of independence of errors is not issued in any of the articles. However, literature states that some assumptions have to be met before using LRA. Tabulation of the results of the studies also has some missing parts. It is possible to state that researchers are not attaching required attention to presenting the results of the LRA.

Although there are two papers that do not mention about the general evaluation of the model, evaluation of the models was done greatly in the studies. General evaluation of the model shows great importance for the latter stages of the analysis. Additionally, mostly 8 articles have never mentioned about the goodness of fit of the model in their interpretations.

Because of this missing part, studies could not have the ability to represent required information about whether the analysis method adapt to the variables and data or about the degree of adaptation. Thus, it can be interpreted as a deficiency of the researches. Other notable finding is that interpretations on odds ratio and probability are mostly represented incomplete 4 articles.

Deficiencies in such interpretations could create confusion for the readers to understand research findings. LRA gives us opportunity to make group membership estimations. Accuracy of these estimations can be examined with the percentage of correct classification. In contrast, the percentages of correct classification mostly 6 articles are not mentioned in the articles.

Additionally, to assess the model adequacy; at least one of indicators of the classification table, residual values and pseudo R2 values should be interpreted. In the examined articles most preferred indicator to assess the model adequacy is pseudo R2 values.

This research reveals high importance to minimize the deficiencies and mistakes of researchers for using LRA and interpreting its findings.

This research has been limited in ten articles; and can be repeated with numerous articles. Also, this study is limited with articles that published between the years Publication year limitation can be expanded or abroad papers in this context may be added for recent researches. Related Papers.
