The purpose of the study is to determine the visual and auditory reaction time, perception, attention and memory levels
of PE teacher candidates and computer teacher candidates.
For this purpose, after giving necessary information to the teacher candidates of the Department of Physical Education
and Sports and the candidates of Computer Teaching Department of Kocaeli University, 88 voluntary students, were
applied Benton Perception, Attention-Memory test and Newtest 1000 which determined their visual and auditory
reaction time. Data was analyzed by using SPSS 21.00 software. The Man Whitney U test was used for the comparison
of the paired groups since the data in the normality analysis did not follow a normal distribution. As a result, it was
found that computer teacher candidates had higher levels of attention-perception and memory scores than those of PE
teacher candidates. PE teacher candidates were found to be faster to perceive auditory stimulus and give reactions.
