Examining EFL students’ achievements and perceptions in terms of writing skills in flipped classroom environment


This study mainly aims to find out whether there is any significant change in freshman students’ perceptions and any significant improvement in their writing performances whose proficiency of English is at the pre-intermediate level, in terms of writing skills in flipped classroom model. The study also sought to identify whether there is any significant difference in both students’ perceptions and improvements of their writing performance in the flipped model implementation by gender. To this end, tenweek long flipped model learning was implemented to instruct students to learn writing. The model consisted of instructional videos and online learning materials. 101 students from an urban university located in the eastern part of Turkey participated in the study. They completed two pre-tests and post-tests to identify their performances in writing, and both a questionnaire and student diaries to examine their perceptions. The test scores in writing were measured with a human scoring rubric on SPSS 22. Also, the results of the questionnaire were computed on SPSS 22. On the other hand, student diaries were measured with a four-category coding system. Findings showed statistically significant differences between the mean scores in favor of the students. Furthermore, the results showed that this improvement in writing performance is largely attributable to the flipped model method of learning. Students’ perceptions towards the flipped model were stated to be positive. However, no significant difference was found in terms of both the perceptions of the students and the improvement of their writing performances regarding the flipped classroom model by gender.
