  •  Apantee Poonputta    


The purposes of the study were 1) to investigate the effects of research-based learning management in a work-integrated curriculum on student teachers’ learning management abilities and to investigate the effectiveness of research-based learning management in a work-integrated curriculum on students’ teachers’ research skills. The samples were 30 mathematics student teachers in the faculty of education, Mahasarakham University, Thailand. Purposive sampling was employed in participant selection. The instruments were a research-based learning management plan, a learning management ability evaluation form, and a research skill evaluation form. The study was conducted in a quantitative method. The statistics used in analyzing the effects of the treatment on learning management abilities were percentage, mean score, standard deviation, and Orthogonal Polynomials. Meanwhile, a one-sample t-test with the criterion of 75 was used to analyze the participants’ research skills. The results of the studies reveal a linear trend in student teachers’ development of learning management abilities. Moreover, an expected outcome was reached in terms of developing the participants' research skills.
