Yanik, Mehmet
Journal of Education and Training Studies, v6 n5 p111-117 May 2018
The aim of this study is to examine the attitude levels of students receiving education at university level towards sport with regard to certain variables. The research was designed with the scanning model. A "sport attitudes scale" was applied to a total of 547 students, selected by random sampling method, who were studying at Balikesir University. The research findings revealed that the participants' attitude levels regarding sport were at a "high attitude" level, with an average of 3.70±058. It was determined that participants who did sport regularly had a higher attitude level. It was also determined that according to the education department variable, students receiving sports education together with those in the economics faculty had higher attitude levels. As for the grade level variable, it was revealed that the lowest attitude level belonged to third-grade students. Consequently, with the aim of increasing university students' attitude levels regarding sport, it is recommended that they be given the opportunity to do more sport and that they be given guidance in this direction.
