A Study on Student Stress

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The present study is a primary initiative in the Peruvian literature for understanding the factors which influence Peruvian students’ stress. A self-administered questionnaire and focus group discussions were used in order to
collect data from 700 respondents. The analysis of the data collected was, furthermore, carried on through exploratory factor analysis. Results revealed that while some factors are consistent with previous studies, other factors are country-specific, unavailable in the existent literature until the moment. The paper also discusses the implications for academic administrators who are concerned with the holistic well-being of their students. Moreover,
this study makes a modest attempt to develop an instrument to understand sources of stress in student life. The instrument is valid and reliable and can be used to determine student stress perceptions among students enrolled in
academic institutions.
