Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate the psychological levels of sports-educated university students according to their gender, their grade level, their department and the type of sports they do. Independent t test and one-way ANOVA were used for statistical analysis. Students' sub-dimensions of coping with difficulty, being open to learning, concentration, confidence and achievement, goal setting, being able to perform well under pressure and getting rid of anxiety and total scale scores did not show a statistically significant difference according to gender, class level and type of sport (p > 0.05). The scale total scores showed a statistically significant difference between the sub-dimensions of being open to learning, trust and achievement, goal setting and getting rid of anxiety according to the department they studied (p < 0.05 and p < 0.001). Conclusion: It has been determined that the psychological levels of sports-educated university students do not change according to gender and grade level, and differ according to the department they study. In addition, the psychological skill levels of the students, who are all team sports, did not change according to the type of sports they do. It is recommended to conduct this study with a larger group, considering team and individual sports.
