The Effect of Creative Writing Exercises in Turkish Classes On Students' Academic Achievement: A Meta-Analysis

Creative writing is an important cognitive teaching method that allows students/individuals to express their thoughts, desires, dreams, feelings in an articulate, authentic and effective way. There are numerous scientific studies investigating the positive impact of creative writing exercises on students' other skills. Although there are many studies conducted in this context in the literature, there has not been any studies aimed at combining the results of all these studies and aiming to reach more accurate results and explanations by high-level analyses. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to determine the effect of creative writing practices in Turkish classes, on the academic achievement of students. As a result of the literature review, 25 studies that research the impact of creative writing activities performed within the scope of the Turkish courses in Turkey on the students' academic achievements and that met inclusion criteria in this study were chosen to be analyzed through a meta-analysis. Comprehensive Meta-Analysis (CMA) software was used to analyze data in this research. As a result of the analyses, it has been observed that creative writing activities had a positive effect on students' academic achievement in Turkish courses compared to the traditional teaching techniques. In line with the random effects model, the 95% confidence interval was used for the analysis, and the average effect size was calculated as 1.198. When interpreted according to Cohen et al. (2011), it is seen that creative writing activities have a strong effect in terms of improving the academic success in Turkish lessons.
