Evaluation of Fourth-Grade Primary School Students' Attitudes and Self-Efficacy towards Physical Education Course Using Socio-Cultural Approach
Aydogan, Hayri
Educational Research and Reviews, v11 n22 p2034-2047 Nov 2016
Changes in the national education system in Turkey have negative effects on the development of sports. Because, as classroom teachers teach Physical Education courses themselves, instead Physical Education teachers teach the course. This was because of a recent legislation released by the Ministry of National Education related to 4+4+4 compulsory schooling and the last resort for compulsory schooling model was made as 4+4+4 on 2012 to 2013 education season. In this context, the purpose of this research is to evaluate fourth-grade primary school students' attitudes and self-efficacy towards physical education course based on socio-cultural approach. Physical Education Predisposition Scale (BEYÖ in Turkish) was used as the data collection tool and "Explanatory Factor Analysis (EFA)," "Cronbach Alpha Coefficient" and "Item-Total Correlation Analysis" were conducted on fourth-grade students in order to maintain validity and reliability of the data collected. In the normality hypothesis analysis of the collected data, it is thought that "Kolmogorov-Smirnov Test" along with skewness and kurtosis coefficients will contribute to existing literature.
