Muhammet Mustafa ALPASLAN


Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the differences and the relations between ninth grade students’ resource management strategies in biology and physics. A total of 603 ninth graders from three high schools in Muğla in Turkey participated in the study. A short version of the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire including managing time and study environment, effort management, peer learning and help-seeking was administrated. Repeated multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA)s and confirmatory factor analysis were utilized. Results showed that students reported a higher usage of managing time and study environment, peer learning and help-seeking biology than in physics, whereas a higher usage of effort management in physics than in biology. Also it was found that students’ resource management strategies in both courses were correlated to each other. The implications and future directions were discussed.
