Self-Regulated Learning Skills of Prospective Music Teachers in Turkey
Boon, Ebru Tuncer
International Journal of Music Education, v38 n3 p415-430 Aug 2020
The purpose of this study was to investigate self-regulated learning skills of prospective music teachers in Turkey (N = 222). This study also investigated whether self-regulated learning skills of prospective music teachers differed according to their gender, academic year, daily practice hours, and most recent instrument exam grade. The data were collected through the Self-Regulated Learning Skills Scale developed by Turan. Analyses revealed that statistically significant differences were found between the Planning and Goal Setting subscale and gender variable. The female students had higher planning and goal setting compared to the male students. The results also showed that the male students were more dependent learners. Students whose instrument exam grade was between 76 and 100 had higher planning and goal setting skills. Prospective music teachers who practiced their instruments more than 3 hr a day showed higher self-regulated learning skills than those who practiced less. Implications for future research and practical applications are also discussed.
