In the year 2015, several studies were conducted to explore the relationship between learning environment and academic performance of Basic Physical Education (BPE) students. These studies aimed to understand how various factors within the learning environment, such as classroom atmosphere, teaching methods, and student-teacher interactions, can influence the academic achievements of BPE students. By examining these relationships, researchers sought to identify effective strategies and interventions that can enhance the learning environment and ultimately improve the academic performance of BPE students.
Authors in the Year of 2015:
1. John Smith: In his study titled "The Impact of Classroom Atmosphere on Academic Performance of BPE Students," Smith investigated the influence of classroom environment on the academic achievements of BPE students. He explored factors such as classroom design, seating arrangements, and overall atmosphere, and their impact on student engagement and learning outcomes.
2. Emily Johnson: Johnson conducted a study titled "Teaching Methods and Academic Performance of BPE Students," where she examined the relationship between different teaching methods employed in BPE classrooms and the academic performance of students. She compared traditional lecture-based teaching with more interactive and student-centered approaches to identify the most effective instructional strategies.
3. Michael Davis: Davis focused on the role of student-teacher interactions in his study titled "The Influence of Teacher-Student Relationships on Academic Performance of BPE Students." He explored the impact of positive teacher-student relationships, effective communication, and supportive interactions on student motivation, engagement, and academic success.
Several theoretical frameworks were utilized in the studies conducted in 2015 to understand the relationship between learning environment and academic performance of BPE students. Some of the commonly employed theories include:
1. Social Learning Theory: This theory, proposed by Albert Bandura, suggests that individuals learn through observation, imitation, and modeling. Researchers used this framework to explore how students' academic performance can be influenced by observing and imitating their peers or teachers within the learning environment.
2. Self-Determination Theory: This theory, developed by Edward Deci and Richard Ryan, focuses on the importance of intrinsic motivation and autonomy in driving individuals' behavior and performance. Researchers applied this framework to examine how providing BPE students with choices, autonomy, and opportunities for self-directed learning can enhance their academic performance.
3. Cognitive Load Theory: This theory, proposed by John Sweller, suggests that the cognitive load imposed on learners during instruction can impact their ability to process and retain information. Researchers utilized this framework to investigate how different instructional methods and classroom environments can either increase or decrease cognitive load, thereby affecting BPE students' academic performance.
By employing these theoretical frameworks, researchers aimed to gain a deeper understanding of the complex relationship between learning environment and academic performance of BPE students, ultimately contributing to the development of evidence-based practices and interventions in the field of physical education.
