INVESTIGATION OF THE TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS OF THE STUDENTS OF THE FACULTY OF SPORTS SCIENCES DEPENDING ON VARIOUS VARIABLES

Time is a factor significantly affecting human life. Successfully managing the time is a skill helping in regulating human life. The objective of the present study is to determine the level of the time management skills of the students of the Faculty of Sports Sciences. A total number of 853 students from the Faculty of Sports Sciences in Gazi University, the Faculty of Sports Sciences in Kırıkkale University and Hasan Doğan School of Physical Education and Sports in Karabük University, which constituted the target population, participated in the study. ten closed-ended questions and the “Time Management Scale” developed by Britton and Tesser (1991) and adapted to Turkish by Alay and Koçak (2002) were used as the data collecting tools. The data obtained in the study was analyzed using the SPSS 24 program, the t-test was used in the analysis of the answers given by the two different clusters, the ANOVA (one-way variance analysis) test was used in multiple group comparisons, and the Tukey’s HSD Multiple Comparison Test was used to determine the groups creating the difference in the ANOVA tests. While a statistically significant difference at the level of p<0.05 was found between the distribution of the opinions of the students in the Time Management Scale and its sub-dimensions depending on the variables of “gender”, “age”, “the department where the students study”, “being a licensed athlete”, “athletic achievements”, “the branch of sport” and “being a national team athlete”, no statistically significant difference was found between their distribution depending on the variables of “grade-level”, “economic status” and “the gender of the coach the students have worked with for the longest period”.
