Mathematics Attitudes and Academic Self-Concepts of Gifted and Talented Students
Deringöl, Yasemin
Acta Didactica Napocensia, v11 n2 p79-88 2018
Since the first half of the 20th century, countries have begun to accelerate the education of gifted individuals in sports/arts and science and mathematics as a way of proving their superiority, and enabled these individuals to demonstrate their talents. There is a limited number of studies that measure the mathematics attitudes and academic self-states of gifted and talented students, which are cognitive domain characteristics as well as affective domain characteristics. In this context, the main purpose of this study is to reveal the mathematical attitudes and academic self-states of gifted and talented students. The "Mathematics Attitude Scale" developed by Baykul (1990) and the "Academic Self-Concept Scale" adapted to Turkish by Senemoglu (1989) were used to measure mathematics attitudes and academic self-concepts of students who were identified as gifted and talented. The students' mathematics attitude and academic self-scores were found to be high.
