Evaluation of Necessary Skills for Solving a Complex Task in Students of Bushehr University of Medical Sciences in 2013
Abstract:   (10531 Views)
Introduction: The use of active learning approaches, such as problem-based meth-od, is effective in improving learning skill-s. The aim of this study was to assess the skills needed to solve a complex task in students of Bushehr University of medical sciences. Materials & Methods: In this cross-secti-onal study, 182 students of Bushehr Uni-versity of Medical Sciences were selected randomly. Data were collected by using of State Meta cognitive Inventory standard questionnaire (SMI). The questionnaires were completed immediately after exams. Finding: The average and standard devi-ation of age in the students were 20.46 ± 1.35 years. The highest and lowest cor-relations were r=0.698 (between plan-ning dimension and cognitive strategy) and r=0.492 (between self-checking and cogn-itive strategy), respectively. There was not any significant correlation between scores of exam and problem solving skills. The correlation among test scores of students and different living status was significant (p=0.017), and the average of test scores w-as higher in non-native students than the native ones. Discussion & Conclusion: The average of total scores regarding to homework solving skills in considered students is not in a suitable and desirable status. The non-in-digenous students get higher scores than the native ones, because they compete with the other students living in dormitory. There-fore, to improve problem solving and thin-king skills, and exchanging experiences am-ong students, particularly native students, some procedures like individual or group counseling regarding to the correct methods for studying or even group working, should be considered.
