Educational Research and Reviews, v6 n3 p265-273 Mar 2011
Nowadays, it is seen that student behaviours that disturb the learning environment have come up as crucial problems in education and training applications and they set learning backward. This research aims to define the opinions of instructors and students on preventing the undesired classroom behaviours that disturb education and to evaluate these opinions from a professional approach. The data of the research are gathered through literature review and questionnaire method. The population of the research is Mehmet Akif Ersoy University Faculty of Education; the sample group of the research is composed of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade students of Classroom Teaching Department, Department of Early Childhood Education and Physical Education and Sports Department and the instructors of these departments. A questionnaire was developed in accordance with the research taking by applying to expert opinion. The comprehensibility, content validity and reliability of the questionnaire were tested. The Cronbach's alpha reliability co-efficient of the questionnaire was defined as 0.63. The students from the sampling group were met face to face and the questionnaire was applied to the students using stratification and random sampling method. It was also applied to the instructors by meeting face to face. The questionnaires of 407 people, 72 of whom are the instructors, 333 of whom are the students and 2 of whom didn't mention their status, were evaluated. After the collected data were coded to SPSS package program, frequency (f), percentage (%) and cross table (Crostab) and X square (X[superscript 2]) operation were applied as statistical operations. According to instructor and student variables, each answer was interpreted taking percentage (%) distribution and 0.05 confidence interval into consideration. As a result we can say that; the opinions of instructors and students to prevent unwanted classroom behaviours that disturb education are not professional; they are instructor and student centred; they do not remove or prevent the reasons of negative behaviours and they are only temporary solutions with variable warnings.
