Ozmutlu, Ilker
Educational Research and Reviews, v9 n3 p92-96 Feb 2014
The aim of this research is to examine the problem solving abilities of School of Physical Education and Sports students. To achieve this aim, in the academic year 2013-2014, a research group did a study of 433 students of the School of Physical Education and Sports, Kafkas University. This sample consisted of 184 female and 249 male students. Within the research model in this study, the Problem. Solving Inventory (PSI) was used to measure the students' problem solving abilities. The scale was developed by Heppner and Peterson (1982) and its Turkish version was prepared by Sahin, Sahin and Heppner (1993). The SPSS 14.0 packaged software was used for data analysis and interpretation. The only sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov Test was used to determine if the data is normally distributed and it was determined that they are not distributed normally and then instead of the t test, the Mann-Whitney U test and instead of one way ANOVA test, the Kruskal-Wallis Test was used, and also frequency test was used. This study showed that the students of the School of Physical Education and Sports have problem-solving abilities, and there are no t test factors in terms of gender, department, type of learning and type of school they graduated from. However, there is a significant difference between the class factor and problem-solving abilities.
