Evaluation of secondary school students' attitudes towards physical education and sports classes: A meta-analysis study
Secondary school students' attitudes towards physical education and sports classes
It is predicted that secondary school students' attitudes towards physical education classes differ in terms of gender variable. The study examined the effects of secondary school students' gender variable and the variables that could be moderators on their attitudes towards physical education course. It is necessary to know how students' attitudes are shaped in terms of boys and girls with the physical education course and make predictions in this direction. The meta-analysis method, which is one of the methods of synthesizing research results, constituted the research model. Studies on secondary school students' attitudes towards physical education and sports lessons were examined and the findings obtained from the studies constituted the main data source of this study. As a result of the meta-analysis, it was revealed that there was no publication bias. According to the fixed effects model, the average effect size value was d = 083 in favor of male students, and 0.081 in the random effects model. As a result of the moderator analysis, it was determined that the researcher (s) was not a moderator for the calculated average effect size of the variables such as gender, research region, research type, class level, research year and sample number. It can be said that the gender variable has almost no effect on secondary school students' attitudes towards physical education and sports lessons.
