Finding aptitude in post-graduates in educational management course in statistics by the means of evaluating the multiple intelligence factors (Case study of Azad university- GARMSAR branch)


Contrary to dominant point of view in respect of intelligence, Gardner states that the existence of multiple intelligence

which every aspect of it equal with each other can be seen in every normal person. He believed that enforcing

intelligence of people is the ultimate goal of education. This study is applicable in purpose and survey and integrative

from approach point of view. This study has been implemented on 298 subjects from the students of post-graduation of

Islamic Azad University (Garmsar Unit) who are studying Educational Management during 2009–2011. According to

Morgan table, 155 of the /above mentioned subjects has been selected as the study sample. In order to implement the

study we have used a questionnaire consisting of 53 questions created by Gardner named “the 8 Intelligent”. The final

grades of the students in the course of descriptive and interpretive statistics in first and second semester of the

educational year of 2010-2011 have been also utilized for the purpose of this survey. The result showed that the

surveyed students have a satisfying level of multiple intelligences in general. In the meantime the factors related to

math, music, spatial intelligence of Gardner have been analyzed step by step with Regression approach. The results

also showed that these factors in a meaningful way can predict the effectiveness of educational variable (P</01). The

meaningfulness ratio of F shows the meaningful relation of this variable with the educational effectiveness variable in

statistics course.
