Abstract


In this study, it was aimed to investigate the experimental studies regarding the effect of educational robotic applications on academic achievement by the meta-analysis method. Within the scope of the research, the studies carried out on educational robotic applications were scanned from national and international databases and selected according to inclusion criteria. The sample of the study consisted of 2606 participants with 1300 in the experimental group and 1306 in the control group. In the study, the effect size values and combined effect size of each study included in the meta-analysis were calculated by using CMA. As a result of the study, it has been found that educational robotic applications have a positive and low level effect on academic achievement according to the random effects model. As a result of the analyzes conducted to reveal the publication bias status of the study, it has been found that there is no publication bias in the meta-analysis study. In addition, it has been found that the effect size of educational robotic applications on academic achievement does not change depending on the subject area and duration of application but changes depending on the sample size. In the other studies to be conducted, the effectiveness of the students in different variables such as computational thinking skills, problem solving skills, attitude, motivation, and anxiety levels can be examined in addition to the variables studied.
