Fatih Yaşartürk


The aim of this study is to analyze the academic self-efficacy and leisure satisfaction levels of university students according to some variables and to determine the relationship between them. 1053 (642 male and 411 female) students from the Physical Education and Sports College of Bartın University participated in the study. A personal information form prepared by the researchers, the "Academic Self-Efficacy Scale" (ASES) developed by Owen & Froman (1988) and adapted to Turkish by Ekici (2012) and the "Leisure Satisfaction Scale (LSS)" developed by Beard & Ragheb (1980) and adapted to Turkish by Gökçe & Orhan (2011) were used as data collection tools. Descriptive statistical methods, the t-Test, ANOVA and Pearson Correlation tests were used in the analysis of the data. In the findings of the study, it was found that there was a significant difference between the "Social status", "Cognitive Practices", "Technical Skills" and LSS "Social" subscales in terms of the "gender" variable (p˂0.05), and the result was in favor of the female students. In the correlation test results, it was found that there was a significant relationship in the ASES subscale "Technical Skills" in terms of the "age" variable (p<0.05), and the ability to perform technical skills increased as age increased. In addition, a significant relation was found between the LSS "social" subscale and the "Family Income" variable (p<0.05). Consequently, no significant relationship was found between ASES and LSS subscales, while a significant relation was found between the age and family income variables. The reason for this can be considered that as the ages of university students increase, their orientation towards technical skills and their academic development is affected. In addition, it can be considered as the income level of university students increase, their activities such as socialization and participation in social activities are affected in a positive way and that consequently they get satisfaction.
