Author(s): Dr. Meena Kumari and Dr. Sanjay Chaudhary

Abstract: Present study was designed to identify the predictors of academic stress among senior secondary school students. For this, Busari’s Students’ Academic Stress Scale (SASS) was adapted by the investigators and Academic Stress Determinants Scale (ASDS) developed by the investigators was used. Data was collected from various senior secondary school students of Haryana. A sample of 444 senior secondary school students was drawn randomly from the population. To identify the predictors of academic stress among senior secondary school students, Stepwise Multiple Regression Analysis was applied by taking academic stress as dependent variable. SPSS version 16.0 was used for the analysis. The findings of the study reveal that three stressors i.e. peer- related stressors, self-related stressors and teacher-related stressors jointly contribute substantially to the prediction of sample subjects’ academic stress. All three predictors i.e. peer- related stressors, self-related stressors and teacher-related stressors account for 37% (0.367) of the total variance in the academic stress.
