A Study on the Relationships between Academic Stress and Leisure Constraint: An Example of Junior-High-School Students’ Participation of Cram School
The purposes of this study were to: (1) understand the correlations between academic stress and leisure constraint among junior-high-school students in Kaohsiung City, and (2) explore the differences among academic stress and leisure constraint from the different backgrounds of junior-high-school students. The intent is to inform schools, families and public sectors of the importance of promoting leisure activities among junior-high-school students. The study was conducted through the questionnaire-survey method. With simple probability sampling, 450 copies of questionnaire were distributed face-to-face, and 450 valid ones were collected. The data was analyzed through descriptive analysis, independent T-test, one-way ANOVA, Scheffe’s post-hoc test, and Pearson’s correlation by using the SPSS for Windows 12.0.
The results are as follows: (1) Participants’ academic stress as well as leisure constraints were accounted in a moderate degree; (2) There were significant differences found in the perceived academic stress between different backgrounds of participants; (3) Respondents, to some degree, differed on the leisure constraints depending on their gender, the year of student, as well as parents and teachers’ requirements of academic performance; (4) Academic stress significantly correlated to leisure constraints, showing that the higher academic stress the participants perceived, the higher degree of leisure constraints they had. Based on the results, it is advised that the authorities concerned should efficiently encourage leisure participation among junior-high-school students so as to lessen their academic stress.
Key words: after-school tutoring, academic stress, leisure constraint
