Abstract

The aim of this study, which was carried out in the center of Eskişehir using the survey model of quantitative research, is to describe the emotional literacy skill levels of the high school students and analyze them based on different variables. The study was conducted with 1103 high school students who were selected using stratified sampling method and as the data collection tool, “Emotional Literacy Skill Scale” developed by the researcher was used.

The analyses of the data indicated that the high school students in the center of Eskişehir generally have medium and high levels of emotional literacy. When the demographic variables are examined, there are statistically significant differences in the emotional literacy skill total scores based on the gender, school type, and GPA variables.

It is observed that female students and students with high GPAs have higher scores in many dimensions; thus, the schools, which accept students with high scores and the female students are the majority, have better average in terms of emotional literacy skill.

Keywords: Emotional Literacy, Literacy, Survey method
