EXAMINING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE MORAL DEVELOPMENT LEVELS OF DUZCE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS WHO STUDY IN DIFFERENT FACULTIES AND SPORTS AND THEIR ATTITUDES TOWARDS SPORTS

The aim of the study is to examine the relationship between the moral development levels of Düzce University students who study in different faculties and play sports and their attitudes towards sports. The sample of the study consisted of 381 people who were studying in different faculties of Düzce University and participated voluntarily in the research. A personal information form consisting of 5 questions was used to determine some demographic characteristics of the participants. The “attitude towards sport scale”, consisting of 25 questions made by Senturk (2015), was used to determine attitudes towards sport. The “moral maturity scale”, developed by Sengun (2008) and consisting of 66 questions, was used to determine the participants ' moral maturity levels. The data obtained from these scales were analyzed using the SPSS 17 package program. Frequency and percentage values were used in the analysis of the data. The data distributions were examined with the Kolmogorov-Smirnov normality test and the data showed no normal distribution. For this reason, the Mann-Whitney U test and Kruskal-Wallis tests were used in the analysis of the research data. The level of significance was set to 0.05. According to the findings, participants ' moral maturity scores and attitudes towards sports are significant in terms of gender, class, faculty and branch variables. As a result, it appears that there is a positive and meaningful relationship between the research group's moral maturity levels and sports attitudes, and thus the moral maturity scores of individuals with high Sports attitudes also increase.
