Thus, stressors affecting students can be categorized as academic, financial, time or health related, and self- imposed (Goodman, 1993). Academic stressors include the student’s perception of the extensive knowledge base required and the perception of an inadequate time to develop it ((Carveth et al, 1996). Students report experiencing academic stress at predictable times each semester with the greatest sources of academic stress resulting from taking and studying for exams, grade competition, andthe large amount of content to master in a small amount of time (Abouserie, 1994). College students have many obstacles to overcome in order to achieve their optimal academic performance. It takes a lot more than just studying to achieve a successful college career.
Several students have too much on their plate, including academic and extracurricular activities, not giving them enough free time to rest. Tom Loveless of the Brown Center on Education Policy at the Brookings Institution believes that full schedules can stress a child’s brain and have a negative effect on their ability to learn. The stated reasons affect the student’s overall health. Negative stress, meaning uncontrolled or too much stress, can cause headaches, upset stomach, elevated blood pressure, chest pain, depression, anxiety, and may worsen specific sicknesses or
The students do this to because of the peer pressure that follows them. However, self-induced pressure also plays a role in convincing the students to try and defeat other students. Students put pressure on themselves to seek success in school. Seeing the success of others near them produces a panic to settle in, which leads to just he focus on their studies and nothing else. Students become “obsessed with their studies” and nothing else becomes important (Zinsser).
According to the NEA article it states, "Many teachers, also paying students for good grades leads to practical problems in the classrooms, those of which include pressure to inflate grades and conflict with the student and parent/guardian." This shows that if students get paid for school, there are chances that the student would be bullied on school grounds because the other pupils would want the payment/money if they didn 't receive any for themselves. Another issue is that the student receiving the payment would boast about their grades and would look down on other students thinking they 're better. Clearly, these issues can affect the child and others around them.
Classroom behaviour is one of the problems of the teacher on how to handle or how to manage their class. Student misbehaviours such as disruptive talking, chronic avoidance of work, clowning, interfering with teaching activities, harassing classmates, verbal insults, defiance, and hostility , ranging from infrequent to frequent, mild to severe, is a thorny issue in everyday classroom. Teachers usually reported that these disturbing behaviours in the classroom are intolerable and stress-provoking, and they had to spend a great deal of time and energy to manage the classroom. In fact, student misbehaviours retard the smoothness and effectiveness of teaching and also impede the learning of the student and his/her classmates. Furthermore, research findings have shown that school misbehaviour not only escalated with time but also lowered academic achievement.
Academic Stress Upon University Students The compiled stressors upon university students, especially those who just came across this transitional phase, will cause them a severe academic stress. The relentless requirements of university life place a lot of pressure on students which in return stimulate a feeling of stress and worn out. Also, they face immediate challenges; according to Lumley & Provenzano (2003) “The immediate challenges that students face are the decisions they have to make about the presented career paths in addition to developing and negotiating new relationships, getting novel ideas that challenge their past-learnt views, and moving away from home.” To emphasize the importance of handling academic stress many
For students, the performance of homework, tests, quizzes and examinations can be the reason causing one to feel stress. Stress appears with teachers, parents and own expectation to do well at school. (Huan, Yeo, Ang & Chong, 2006) Due to the past result, if it is satisfactory, then one, parents, teachers and classmates will have a
According Campbell and svenson (1992) when viewed from the negative aspects of stress or stress is too high it can negatively impact the health and academic performance. Positive stress helps us to become aware of and encouraged us to face the challenge and help us solve the problem. Therefore, the stress among students is an alarming phenomenon that various parties and it should be dealt with first identify the causes of
Overall, this study highlights that conflict in the STR is generally associated with student anxiety. Specifically, both gender with high academic achievement would feel more anxious when they are in a conflictual relationship with teacher. Nevertheless, regardless to gender, I would like to see how students perform in their relationship with teacher and how the relationship associated with academic achievement and anxiety. Therefore, I would focus on the relationship between STR and academic achievement, the significance of STR to students’ stress level and the impact of STR and student attention in class in my study. The methodology of this study provides me a good measurement to identify the stress level of students, the relationship between student and teacher and the students’ academic achievement on a Likert-type response scale.
