ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study is to analyse the effects of habit of doing sports in 8th grade students’ academic achivements and level of learned helplessness.The research group consists of totally 408 8th grade students ( 213 girls and 195 boys) who are in Bolu, Gerede. Depressive Attributional Style Questionnaire which is developed by Seligman and the others (1984) and adopted to Turkish and made standardization by Aydın (1985) is used with the aim of testing the level of learned helplessness. Demographic survey is applied to the students. Kruksal Wallis and Mann Whitney U tests are used for statistical analysis of data.As a result of research findings, any significant differences can’t be found between the students’ level of learned helplessness who do sport or not (p>0.05). Similarly, it is determined that there is no effect of habit of doing sports in academic achivements (p> 0.05). It is observed that academic achivement doesn’t affect the level of learned helplessness (p>0.05). It is determined that parents’ education levels, professions, income states and students’ gender don’t differentiate the level of learned helplessness (p>0.05).As a consequence it is concluded that the habit of doing sport doesn’t affect 8th grade students’ level of learned helplessness and academic achivemens.
