Examination Questions for Educational Psychology Course
1. Describe an explanation of the concept of educational psychology that underlies your role as a
prospective educator and teacher!
2. Describe an explanation of the dynamics of student behavior in various approach perspectives
along with examples!
Answer :
1. With regard to the basic understanding or concept of behavior, there are several schools of
thought (understanding), among others, known as holism and behaviorism. Holistic understanding
emphasizes that behavior is purposeful, which means that the intrinsic aspect (intention,
determination, Azam) from within the individual is an important determining factor for giving birth
to certain behaviors even in the absence of stimuli or stimuli that come from the environment.
While the behavioristic view emphasizes that patterns of behavior can be formed through a process
of habituation and reinforcement by conditioning the stimulus in the environment.
Thus, behavior change is very likely to occur in the context of education, the two basic views should
be considered as complementary things (complementary and complementary because both have
the same important role) as explained by William Stern with his theory of convergence.
2. The dynamics of student behavior:
a. From the point of view of the motive, every movement of human behavior always contains three
aspects, the position of which is gradual and sequential, namely:
Motivating states
The emergence of strength and readiness as a result of the need for tissue or secretions, the
hormonal nature of the organism, or because of being stimulated by certain stimuli.
Example: A student is under pressure because he thinks that he has many deficiencies (disability) so
he unconsciously produces Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) hormone which makes him have a
hormonal boost and is increasingly trying more in terms of learning and also wants to learn more.
prove that he can.
From this example, that encouragement or stimulus from within him can make him study hard and
try more.

Motivated behavior
The movement of organisms towards certain goals according to the nature of the needs to be
fulfilled and satisfied. Thus, every behavior is essentially instrumental (conscious or unconscious).
Example: A student is given an assignment or an experiment, but he doesn't understand what he has
to do first, so he takes the initiative to ask what he doesn't understand.
From this example, it can be concluded that to be able to get things done correctly and by asking
those who know better, his desire to be able to get things done correctly can be fulfilled.
Statisfied Conditions
With the success of achieving a goal that can fulfill a felt need, the balance in the organism is
restored as a sense of pleasure and satisfaction/relief. But sometimes in reality this condition is not
always the case, it could be the other way around, meaning that there is a tension that peaks if the
incentives are not achieved so that individuals feel disappointed/frustrated.
Example: A student takes part in Olympic competition, he also practices, studies and spends his time
in the hope that he can become a champion, after the competition and the announcement of the
championship and stating that he won first place, his anxiety was replaced with a sense of great
satisfaction.
From the example above, it can be concluded that a sense of satisfaction can be generated from an
achievement that results in satisfaction with the fulfillment of a desire
The opposite example: A student takes part in Olympic competition, he also practices, studies and
spends his time in the hope that he can become a champion, after the competition and the
announcement of the championship and declaring he got the last winner, his anxiety also causes a
feeling of great disappointment.
From the example above, it can be concluded that disappointment can arise if what is desired is not
fulfilled.
b. The emergence of satisfaction will only be temporary or temporary. Therefore, the movement of a
behavioral process will actually take place in a cycle, which can be described schematically
