Fulya ZORLU [1] , Fatih SEZEK [2]


The aim of the study was investigation the effect of twice application the Group Investigation method at different intervals on improvement of the students' academic achievement and science process skills in teaching the science lesson. Method of the study was a quasi-experimental design. The study used Solomon Four-group Experimental Design in the first year, and an experimental design in the second year which was created by adding a new experimental group to involve three experimental and two control groups. It was applied the Group Investigation method in the experimental groups and current methods on the curriculum of the secondary school science curriculum of Ministry of National Education in the control groups. Data collection process were used qualitative interview, preliminary information, science process skills and academic achievement tests. Applying the Group Investigation method for two years proved positive contributions to students' academic achievement and science process skills in science lessons. The researchers believe that experimental model developed this stduy will be used in different research areas in long-term studies in the future, and these studies will also make a great contribution to the literature.    
Çalışmanın amacı, Fen bilimleri dersinin öğretimde Grup Araştırması yönteminin farklı zamanlarda uygulanmasının öğrencilerin akademik başarılarını ve becerilerini geliştirmede etkisini incelemektir. Araştırmanın yöntemi, ön test- son test kontrol gruplu yarı deneysel desendir. Araştırmada ilk yıl Solomon Dört Gruplu Deneysel Deseni, ikinci yıl ilave bir deney grubu eklenerek üç deney ve iki kontrol gruplu yeni bir deneysel desen kullanılmıştır. Deney grubunda Grup Araştırması yöntemi, kontrol grubunda Milli Eğitim Bakanlığı fen bilimleri dersi öğretim programına ait mevcut yöntem uygulanmıştır. Veri toplama süreçleri ve araçları olarak yarı yapılandırılmış görüşmeler yapılmış; ön bilgi, bilimsel süreç becerileri ve akademik başarı testleri kullanılmıştır. Çalışmada Grup Araştırması yöntemini iki yıl boyunca uygulamanın fen derslerinde öğrencilerin akademik başarı ve bilimsel süreç becerisine olumlu katkılar sağladığı ortaya çıkmıştır. Araştırma geliştirilen deneysel desenin gelecekte yapılacak uzun vadeli araştırmalarda farklı araştırma alanlarında kullanılabileceği ve bu çalışmaların da alanyazına büyük katkılar sağlayacağı düşünülmektedir.
