Ortaokul Öğrencilerinin Bilimsel Araştırmaya Yönelik Görüşlerinin Fen Başarısı Bağlamında İncelenmesi
Analysis of Middle School Students’ Views on Scientific Inquiry in the Context of Science Achievement

Zeynep KOYUNLU ÜNLÜ [1]


Öğrencilerin bilimsel çalışmalardan zevk almalarını sağlamak, bilimsel düşünebilme ve bilimsel araştırma becerilerini geliştirmek fen öğretiminin amaçlarındandır. Bilimsel araştırma, bilim insanlarının çalışmalarında rutin olarak kullandığı bir süreci temsil eder ve öğrencilerin bilimsel bilgileri öğrenmelerini, bilimsel becerileri kazanmalarını sağlayan bir yöntemdir. Öğrencilere günlük yaşamla ilgili pek çok bilgi ve beceriyi kazandıran bilimsel araştırma, fen eğitiminin önemli bir parçasıdır. Bu araştırmanın amacı bir grup ortaokul öğrencisinin bilimsel araştırmaya yönelik görüşlerini tespit etmektir. Durum çalışması olarak yürütülen bu araştırmaya, 8. sınıfta öğrenim gören 28 öğrenci (10 kız, 18 erkek) katılmıştır. Veriler Bilimsel Sorgulama Hakkındaki Görüş Anketi (VOSI) ve Temel Eğitimden Ortaöğretime Geçiş Sınavı (TEOGS) puanları aracılığı ile toplanmıştır. VOSI ile sınıflandırılan öğrenci görüşlerinin TEOGS puanları ile ilişkisi incelenmiştir. Sonuç olarak akademik anlamda başarılı öğrencilerin de bilimsel araştırmanın bazı bileşenleri konusunda yetersiz görüşlere sahip olabileceği bulgusuna ulaşılmıştır.

One of the aims of science teaching is to ensure that students enjoy scientific work and develop scientific thinking and associated inquiry skills. Scientific inquiry represents a process that scientists routinely use in their work, and it is a way for students to acquire scientific knowledge and develop scientific skills. Providing students with ample knowledge and necessary skills related to daily life, scientific inquiry is an important part of science education. This study aimed to elicit the views of a group of middle school students concerning scientific inquiry. Twenty-eight students (10 girls, 18 boys) attending the eighth grade participated in this case study. The data were collected through the Views of Scientific Inquiry (VOSI) and the students’ scores in the Examination for the Transition from Primary to Secondary Education (TEOGS) held in Turkey. The relationship between TEOGS scores and student views classified by VOSI was examined. The results revealed that students that are successful in academic terms may have insufficient views of some components of scientific inquiry.
