Abstract


THE EFFECT OF TIME MANAGEMENT ON THE PREDICTION OF THE PERSONAL GROWTH INITIATIVES OF THE STUDENTS OF THE FACULTY OF SPORTS SCIENCES

The aim of the study is to determine the effect of time management on personal growth initiatives of students at the faculty of sports sciences. The sample of the study consists of 103 (48.6%) female and 109 (54.4%) male students who are enrolled in the sports sciences faculty of a public university in the academic year 2020-2021. The "Personal Information Form", "Time Management Scale" and "Personal Growth Initiative-II Scale" were used in the study. İn addition, the correlational survey model was used in this study. Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient (r) was used to determine the relationship between variables. The variables of time management and personal growth were subjected to linear regression analysis. In addition, descriptive data, as well as the T-Test was used. Considering the analysis results of the descriptive statistics, it can be stated that the time management and personal growth initiative levels of the participants are above average. However, when the variables of gender and efficient use of time were compared with time management and personal growth initiative, a significant difference was discovered in favor of female participants. Then, it was found that there is a statistically significant effect on the relationship between time management and the personal growth initiative. It was concluded that university students with a high personal growth initiative try to explore the conditions required by their profession and working environments more than students with low personal growth initiative levels, and that their professional identities are more established. In addition, according to the findings of the research, it can be stated that time management explains 43% of the personal growth initiative feature.
