Çelik, Meryem
Educational Research and Reviews, v12 n16 p783-788 Aug 2017
Logical reasoning is the process of thinking about a problem and finding the most effective solution. Children's decision-making skills are part of their cognitive development and are also indicative. The purpose of this study was to examine children's decision-making skills using clues in logical reasoning based on various variables. The study was conducted according to the relational screening model. A purposive sampling method was used in the research. The study group consisted of 119 children attending the kindergarten. Big Math observation form developed by Ginsburg et al. (2003) and adapted to Turkish by Çelik (2012) was used as data collection tool. For this purpose, the children were given two sets of Big Math quadruple clue cards. The data of the study were collected in May 2016/2017 academic year. Percentage and frequency values of the obtained data were calculated. In addition, Mann-Whitney-U test and Kruskal-Wallis test analysis were conducted to measure the differences between groups and the relationships between variables. The results of the research showed that there was no significant difference in the decision making skills of children using logical reasoning clues according to gender. However, it was found that there was a significant difference between the variables of decision making using clues and parents' educational level, and parental occupation and family's economic level.
