  • Visualising Career Orientations of College Students on a Standart
           Educational Classification System

    • Authors: Olcay YILMAZ; Tuncay ERGENE
      Abstract: In this research it is aimed to present a visual comparison of career orientations of college students using ISCED (International Standard Classification of Education) classification system. Research sample consisted of seven experts and 529 college students from 10 different majors of ISCED broad domains. Data was collected with a survey developed by researcher and Personal Globe Inventory – Short Form (Tracey, 2010). Expert opinions were used to locate 26 ISCED narrow educational fields in the light of vocational interest and competence scores. Multi Dimensional Scaling was used with data obtained from Personal Globe Inventory – Short Form to determine college majors’ positions. Most of the college majors were mapped in theoretically congruent positions, yet some discrepancies were found, especially in Conventional and Realistic types. When competence belief placements on dimensions were inspected there found some significant differences in comparison with their interest locations. These differences between interests and competence beliefs highlight the importance of a holistic evaluation when choosing a college major instead of stressing just one important factor. It might be interpreted that interests and abilities are still not the major determinants when deciding a college major and current environmental models scarcely match with the theoretical explanations.

  • Healthful Behaviour during the Pandemic: Physical Distancing

    • Authors: Thomas RYAN
      Abstract: The purpose of this naturalistic observation study was to observe, in a natural setting, the actions of shoppers at retail outlets. In doing so it was hoped that numerous behaviors could be observed that would indicate a level or extent of observance of physical distancing guidelines. It was found that the observed sample was often in compliance with physical distancing guidelines and avoiding contact with others while shopping in retail contexts. The wearing of masks was noted and the cleaning of hands upon entry and exiting was commonplace. Overall, the sample demonstrated an informed and obedient behavioural mode observing the advice from various levels of government.

  • The Effect of Peer Mediation Training on Self-Efficacy, Locus of Control
           and Conflict Resolution Skills

    • Authors: Ümmügülsüm YILMAZ; Fulya TURK
      Abstract: Peer mediation is an effective method for individuals to solve interpersonal conflicts in constructive ways. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of peer mediation training on self-efficacy, locus of control and conflict resolution on secondary school students. Pretest-posttest-tracing test quasi-experimental design method was used in the study. The research was carried out on the sixth-grade students of two secondary schools in Şehitkamil district of Gaziantep. In this research, two study groups, consisting of 24 students, 12 of which were experimental and 12 control groups, were formed. "Conflict Resolution Scale", "Locus of Control Scale" and "Children's Self-Efficacy Scale" were applied as pre-test, post-test and follow-up test to the experimental and control groups. Peer mediation training was given only to the experimental group during 10 sessions. Mann-Whitney U and Wilxocon Signed Ranks Test method was used for data analysis. Results showed that after mediation training, self-efficacy levels of students, internal locus of control and conflict resolution skills increased. In conclusion, it was determined that students who have taken the peer mediation training have more effective conflict resolution skills, inter

  • Validity and Reliability Study of the Negative Maintenance Scale to the
           Turkish Young Adults

    • Authors: Fatma ÖZ
      Abstract: The purpose of this work is to carry out the Turkish validity and reliability study of the Negative Maintenance Scale (NMS) developed by Dainton and Gross (2008). The research was conducted with a total of 505 students, 352 female and 153 male, who are first, second, third, and fourth year students enrolled in various departments of the Faculty of Education of Dokuz Eylül University. The six-factor structure of the scale was tested by confirmatory factor analysis. The obtained findings validated the six-factor structure of the NMS. The language validity of the scale was also examined. The reliability of the NMS was measured with test-retest reliability and internal consistency methods. Results indicated that the NMS is a valid and reliable measurement tool for assessing the maintenance strategies of negative relationships in young adults.
