Bu çalışma ilköğretim yedinci sınıf öğrencilerinin fen bilgisi dersinde, öğretmenlerinden algıladıkları hedefleri araştırmayı hedeflemiştir. Bu amaç için, Öğretmenlerden Algılanan Hedefler Ölçeği (Friedel, Cortina, Turner and Midgley, 2007) Türkçe’ ye adapte edilmiş ve 977 öğrenciye uygulanmıştır. Eşleştirilmiş iki grup arasındaki farkların testi ile öğretmenlerden algılanan ustalık hedefleri ile başarım hedefleri karşılaştırılmıştır. T-testi sonuçlarına göre, 7. Sınıf öğrencileri, fen bilgisi dersinde genellikle öğretmenlerinden ustalık hedeflerini algılamaktadırlar. Diğer bir değişle, öğrenciler, fen bilgisi öğretmenlerinin, öğrencilerin fen bilgisi ile ilgili yeni şeyler öğrenmekten hoşlanmalarını, ilgi duymalarını ve fen bilgisini anlamalarını hedeflediklerini düşünmektedirler.
This study aimed to investigate Turkish elementary students’ perceptions about their teachers’ achievement goals in science classrooms. For this purpose Perceived Teacher Goal Emphases Scale, (Friedel, Cortina, Turner and Midgley, 2007) was adopted to Turkish and administered to nine hundred seventy seven 7th grade, elementary students. Paired sample t-test results was conducted to examine whether there is statistically significant mean difference between perceived teacher mastery goals emphasis and performance goal emphasis, or not. The results indicated that students generally perceive mastery goals from their teachers in science. In other words, elementary students generally think that their science teachers want them to enjoy learning new things, and understand science works.
