Pages: 1-9

The main purpose of the study is the role of internal and external academic control focus on the success of prospective teachers. The study, which was designed to determine the role of academic control focus in general academic success (GPA) and competence, was carried out with 180 pre-service teachers, 44 of which are male and 136 are female. In order to make the focus of internal and external academic control categorically low and high, the median values are divided into two, and low and high internal and external academic control focus groups are obtained. Correlation analysis to examine the relationship between variables, t-test to determine whether GPA and competency variables differ from low and high internal and external academic control focus groups, to determine whether the t-test, GPA and competency variables predict low and high internal and external academic control focus groups. Binomial Logistic Regression analysis was performed. As a result of the analysis, it is seen that the external academic control focus has a negative relationship with GPA and competence, and the internal academic control focus has a positive relation with competence. According to the results of the T test, GPA and competency were higher in the external academic control focus groups, while competence was higher in the internal academic control focus group. According to the results of the Binomial Logistic Regression analysis, it was seen that competence predicted both internal (towards high group) and external (towards low group) academic control focus, while GPA did not predict both internal and external academic control focus groups. It is seen that being in the low and high internal and external academic control focus group in the research results, the pre-service teachers differed in their belief in success and their academic success.

Funda Coşkun Özyol
Pages: 98-110

Social anxiety disorder is a common psychological problem that may negatively impact the cognitive and social development of children. Its severity may, however, be reduced through regular participation in sports or other physical activity. This study aimed to determine the relationship between competitive student-athlete swimmers' social anxiety levels and anthropometric measurements (height, weight, and BMI), body composition (body fat and lean body mass), and body type (ectomorph, endomorph, or mesomorph). The participants were pre-adolescent female (n = 160) and male (n = 146) lower secondary education student-athlete swimmers. The Social Anxiety Scale was used to evaluate their social anxiety levels, while the anthropometric parameters included height and weight, from which BMI was calculated. Body composition involved determining the percentage of body fat and lean body mass; ectomorphic, endomorphic, and mesomorphic values were then calculated. We found that the social anxiety levels of both female and male student-athlete swimmers were low. There was no statistically significant relationship between the social anxiety levels of the male and female student-athlete swimmers with BMI (rs = -.002), lean body mass (rs = -.017), or ectomorphy (rs = -.006) (p > .05 for all). For the female swimmers, social anxiety levels were not associated with body fat (rs = .116), endomorphy (rs = .067), or mesomorphy (rs = .032), nor were those of the male student-athlete swimmers (rs = .005, rs= .065, and rs= -.001, respectively) (p > .05 for all). These findings suggest that participation in competitive swimming during adolescence is effective in controlling social anxiety. Furthermore, this study revealed that social anxiety is not associated with lower secondary education student-athlete swimmers’ anthropometric measurements, body composition, or body type.
