The Graduate Students? Multiple Intelligence Profile and Their Education Routes

Öz   The determination and evaluation of the individual differences, skills and their deficient or competent areas are seemed to be necessary for effective learning. With this regard, following study aimed to examine the multiple intelligence types of the graduate students at the Secondary Science and Mathematics Education and Computer and Instructional Technologies Education main fields connected to Karadeniz Technical University (K.T.U) Graduate School of Natural Science. In this framework, the sample of the study was comprised of total 160 graduate students. ?Multiple Intelligence Self Evaluation Scale? was used as a data collection tool. According to the results gained from students? self evaluation with the Likert type scale, multiple intelligences types of graduate students at the department of  science, mathematics, computer and instructional technologies education (CITE) have enhanced at medium and above level. Results indicated that there is a meaningful difference between the multiple intelligence (MI) types of the students in different departments. It was also concluded that interpersonal, bodily-kinesthetic and naturalist MI types in science education (SE) department students were more advanced than the students in mathematics education (ME) department on the other hand spatial MI types in CITE students were more stronger than the graduate students in mathematics education.
