The objective of this study is to assess the relationship between the social anxiety levels and communication skills of students studying at different secondary schools. Being developed by Korkut; Communication Skills Assessment Form and Social Anxiety Scale for Children were used as data collection tools in the study. While the target population of the study consisted of secondary schools in the provinces of İstanbul and Şanlıurfa; the sample consisted of 677 voluntary students from the Bilge Soyak Secondary School, Büyükçekmece Kıraç Secondary School in İstanbul-Ümraniye, as well as Şanlıurfa Siverek Vakıf Secondary School that were selected via the random method.
The acquired data were analyzed by using the SPSS 20 package software. After determining the homogeneous and normal distribution of the data, they were statistically analyzed by using the parametric test method. The data were analyzed by using descriptive statistics and one-way analysis of variance.
As a consequence; a statistically significant difference was determined between the social anxiety levels and communication skills of secondary school students according to their schools.
This condition might be associated with the educational background of families, their oppressive attitudes toward protecting their children, socio-economic inabilities, failure of teachers or administrators to provide necessary opportunities and possibilities in education period, insufficient service areas of schools, children’s exam anxiety in their developmental period and their inability of allocating time for sportive and recreative activities.
