  • The Predictive Validity of Admission Criteria for College Assignment in
           Saudi Universities: King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences
           Experience

    • Authors: Abdulaziz Althewini
      Abstract: Admission criteria can be used to predict Saudi student performance in college, but significant differences across several studies exists. This study explores the predictive power of admission criteria for college assignment using King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences as a model. Scores from high school and standardized tests were collected for 1,595 students. Data were analyzed with multinomial logistic and multivariate linear regression. A formula was generated to determine student college assignment based on their admission criteria profile. The results showed that all admission criteria were significant predictors of college assignment but accounted for only 21.1% of the variance. Based on the results of this study, admission criteria may not be reliable predictors of college assignment on their own, and additional criteria for measuring student success are needed.

  • Task-Based Approach to Learning Risk Management on University Business
           Administration

    • Authors: Ekpenyong E. Ekanem
      Abstract: Introduction: Lack of accountability demands in university business administration may be as a result of less attention given to genuine learning approach in university education. This study was undertaken to assess the causal effects of task-based approach to learning risk management on effective business decision making and outcome appraisal of universities in Nigeria.Method: The study was a true experimental design study aimed at Knowledge and Learning Management (KALM) in universities for enforcing business accountability. The population included 250 undergraduate final year students of educational management in public universities in Cross River State, Nigeria for 2017/2018 session. The sample consisted of 120 subjects purposely selected. A researcher constructed instrument was validated and had a reliability coefficient of 0.88 obtained using cronbach’s alpha method. Three research questions and one hypothesis guided the study. Data was analysed using mean, percentage and independent t-test analysis.Results: The results showed that task-based approach produced improvement in knowledge after learning risk management. Male and female students learned risk management in the same way for university business decision making and outcome evaluation.Discussion and conclusion: Based on the result above, task-based approach to learning risk management guaranteed development of knowledge and cognitive skills of university students in university business opportunities. The implication of this finding was that students’ learning motivation and task sharing towards knowledge retention in university business outcome could not have been achieved unless something urgent was done to address the issue in a timely manner. Therefore, university management should be able to pay particular attention to genuine learning of task processes and task strategies in risk management. More so, university teachers should be aware of the benefits of integrating learning stages of pre-task, task cycle and post task in enhancing quality decision making choices in university business offers.

  • Recreational Travel Decisions: Push-Pull Dynamics on College Students

    • Authors: Ali Selman Özdemir
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the recreational tourism preferences of university students within the framework of their push and pull travel motivations. In addition, it was aimed to highlight how some variables and motivations affect tourism preferences in mutual interaction. Validity and reliability were obtained by “Scale of Recreational Activities in Destination Choices” (SRADC), “Scale of Intrinsic Travel Motivations” (SITM) and “Scale of Extrinsic Travel Motivations” (SETM) conducted by Özdemir, Karaküçük, and Büyüköztürk (2013). Descriptive statistics, independent sample t test, one way ANOVA and Univariate test were used for data analysis, for in-group comparisons Tukey (HSD-LSD) and Pearson Correlation test were used. In this study, it was determined that .85 for recreational activities in destination choices scale, .90 for SITM and .91 for SETM. While the push and pull travel motivation of the participants was above the mean values (123.96 ± 15.65; 121.35 ± 16.81), the highest subscale score in push travel motivation was obtained by the Exploring-Knowledge subdimension (39.01 ± 5.74). The highest sub-dimension score was obtained from the Escape sub-dimension (38.31 ± 5.98). In the pull travel motivation sub-dimensions, the highest sub-dimension score was the quality-atmosphere sub-dimension (39.29 ± 5.24), while the lowest sub-dimension score was obtained by the Natural Environment sub-dimension (19.98 ± 4.58). The findings of the study showed that the importance given to recreational activities was influenced by variables such as gender, year of study and perceived welfare, but also revealed differences in gender, field of study, year of study, and perceived welfare in push and pull travel motivations. In addition, there is a moderate positive relationship between recreational choices, push travel motivation and pull travel motivation. As a result, it has been determined that university students have high push and pull travel motivation and recreation preferences are differentiated between SITM and SETM by certain variables.

  • Analyzing Sports Participation Motivations of Students with Hearing
           Impairment—Istanbul City Example

    • Authors: Selin Baikoğlu
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the sports participation motivation level of students with hearing impairment continuously participating in high-school for disabled individuals. The study is designed for the quantitative research model and conducted with descriptive, relational survey model. Survey method was adopted for data collection tool of this study. Personal information form and sports participation motivation in students with hearing impairment scales were applied. For data analysis, frequency analysis is conducted for demographic information. For two-variable data, the t-test is used and for multiple variables, Anova tests are used. Total of 82 students with hearing impairment among which 29 are female and 53 are male between 14-33 (±17.6) years old participated in this study. Sports participation motivation of students with hearing impairment sub-dimensions consist of internal motivation with the highest score (x=9.25), external motivation average (x=±3.83) and lack of motivation average (x=2.59). There is no significant difference between gender, class and sports participation motivation sub-dimensions. Lack of motivation sub-dimension of answers to “Does anyone in your family do sports'” question shows a significant difference. There is no meaningful difference for the other two sub-dimensions as internal and external sub-dimensions. As a result of this study, it is reasonable to express that sports participation reasons of students with hearing impairment are not affected from internal or external motivation, and students do not know the exact reason for participating in sports owing to lack of motivation sub-dimension.

  • Analyzing Motor Development and Emergent Literacy Skills of Preschool
           Children

    • Authors: Fatma Özkür
      Abstract: Children start to gain basic literacy skills during preschool that they will constantly be depended on for their academic activities in primary school. Through learning shoulder girdle strength, fine motor skills, and eye-hand coordination, the foundation of motor skills is developed. Examining the effects of motor skills on emergent literacy skills could provide helpful information on the associations among motor and, reading and writing development. The purpose of this study was to analyze 5 years old children’s motor development and emergent literacy skills. The sample of the study consisted of 160 preschool children from main district of Istanbul. Dumans TMB scale and OYHB scale was used for data collection purposes. Results showed that majority of the preschool children (68%) participated in the study had insufficient level of emergent literacy skills. This group’s motor development score was also significantly lower than instructional group. Pearson correlation analysis showed that there was a positive and medium level correlation between the scores of motor development and emergent literacy in both groups. It has been suggested that preschool children’s motor skills should be taken into account for their emergent literacy skills development.

    • Authors: Muhammet Avaroğulları
      Abstract: This study was conducted to determine to what extent the attitudes of pre-service teachers of social studies and history towards the teaching profession may predict possible teacher selves. Participants of the research are senior social studies teacher candidates studying at a public university in the spring semester of 2018-2019 academic year and history teacher candidates registered in the pedagogical formation program. Relational survey model, one of the survey models, was used in the research. The data was collected through Teacher Candidates Possible Selves Questionnaire and Attitude Scale towards Teaching Profession. The data obtained from the study were analyzed by Independent samples t test and simple linear regression analysis techniques. According to the results obtained from the research, there was no difference between the attitudes of social studies teacher candidates and history teacher candidates who received pedagogical formation education towards the teaching profession. While the department of teacher candidates was not effective on the expected teacher selves, it was determined that it was effective on the feared teacher selves. It has been understood that the attitude towards teaching profession is effective in predicting expected possible selves, but it is ineffective in predicting feared possible selves that are feared. Suggestions were made in line with the results obtained from the research.

    • Authors: Neslihan ARIKAN
      Abstract: In the study, a 16-week SEM-SEL volleyball program was prepared using the Social-Emotional Learning Model (SEL) based on the Sport Education Model (SEM). The goal achievements of SEL are processed and awareness about the goal achievements is provided to the students in the SEM-SEL volleyball program each week. In the study, pattern with experimental pre-test final-test control group was used. Experiment and control groups were formed in all three-school types. The 16-week SEM-SEL program was applied to the students in the experimental groups and the current curriculum was applied to the students in the control groups. The Schutte Emotional Intelligence Scale (SEI-S) was used as a data tool. Descriptive statistics and Two-way Covariance Analysis (ANCOVA) were used for data analysis. As a result of the descriptive statistics, it was determined that there were significant differences between the SEI-S total scores of the experiment and control groups; that there was an increase in the emotional intelligence levels of the students in the experiment group and a decrease in the students in the control group. According to ANCOVA, SEI-S final-test total scores were found to have a significant difference in favor of the experimental group and no significant difference in the school type. Consequently, the 16-week SEM-SEL volleyball program was effective in increasing the emotional intelligence levels of the students. Furthermore, it was determined that SEM and SEL were compatible with each other and that SEL had positive results in the field of physical education and sports.

  • Youth Athletes’ Moral Decision Making Levels and Sportspersonship
           Behavior Levels of Coaches

    • Authors: Ömür F. Karakullukçu
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to determine moral decision making attitudes of youth athletes and sportspersonship behavior levels of their coaches; and to test them in terms of certain variables. The study is in a descriptive research model; the sample group consists of 294 certified athletes playing in youth sports teams; the ages range between 11 and 17. As measurement, “Attitudes to Moral Decision-Making in Youth Sport Questionnaire-2 (AMDYSQ-2)” and “Sportspersonship Coaching Behaviors Scale (SCBS)” were used.In order to test whether the data meet the prerequisite for multivariable tests, Skewness and Kurtosis values and Levene and Box M values were investigated. In the analysis of data, descriptive statistics methods, MANOVA, ANOVA and Pearson Correlation analysis were used. In order to determine the reliability of scales, their Cronbach Alpha internal consistency coefficients were calculated. MANOVA results show that AMDYSQ-2 has a significant impact on all independent variables whereas SCBS has a significant impact on “gender” and “branch involvement duration” variables. According to the correlation results, there is a positive and low-level significant correlation between “acceptance of cheating” and “keep winning in proportion” factors of SCBS and “setting expectations for good sportspersonship”, “teaching good sportspersonship”, “reinforcing sportspersonship”, “prioritizing winning over good sportspersonship” and “modeling good sportspersonship” factors of AMDYSQ-2.As a result, it is concluded that for the athletes, “acceptance of cheating” factor of AMDYSQ-2 and “setting expectations for good sportspersonship” factor of SCBS are the most important factors.

  • Application of Contextual Teaching and Learning Approach on Statistics
           Material Against Student Results

    • Authors: Aaltje Pangemanan
      Abstract: Based on empirical data, student learning outcomes on statistical material are not in accordance with the expectations of teachers so it is necessary to apply the Contextual Teaching and Learning (CTL) approach. A CTL implementation can help students to understand concepts and skilled resolve issues. The research purpose is to see whether the students learning outcomes on statistics materials that are taught using the CLT approach are better than conventional approaches. The methods used are experimental studies and the data will be obtained from the pre-test and post-test learning outcomes. The population are the entire class IX student while samples taken by random sampling techniques, two classes, namely as an experimental class and control. Research design is a Non-equivalent Control Group Design. Based on the results with two average difference tests on T-Test statistics were obtained that student learning outcomes in experimental class is higher than the controls. This means learning by applying the CTL approach can improve learning outcomes and the benefits for mathematics teachers gained insight into the CTL learning process.
