INVESTIGATION OF THE EFFECTS OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC ON AUDIOLOGY STUDENTS IN TURKEY: A CROSS-SECTIONAL SURVEY STUDY
This dataset describes the multiple effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on Audiology students. The study was performed between August 28 and September 30, 2020, in Turkey. The research was carried out using an online questionnaire created on Google Forms. The survey included demographic questions (4), questions on the effects of online distance education, and questions about the effect of this period on students' personal-social-emotional state and professional competence (29). We reached out to the participants through social media accounts (Instagram, Whatsapp etc.) and e-learning system accounts (zoom, microsoft teams etc.) that audiology students subscribed to or followed. A seven-point range scale was applied to allow the participants to indicate how much they feel competency level with a specific statement and how much affected their specific situations during this period. 518 undergraduate and graduate students participated the study. Two numerical scales with 7 points were used in the dataset file. First scale, where 1 is "too insufficient" and 7 is "very sufficient", refers to participants' level of competency (1: too insufficient 2: insufficient 3: insufficient somewhat 4: neutral 5: sufficient somewhat 6: sufficient 7: very sufficient). The second scale, where 1 is "not at all" and 7 is "very much", refers to the impact amount of the pandemic period on participants (1: not at all, 2: too little, 3: little, 4: neither less nor more, 5: a bit much, 6: much, 7: very much).
