Stress In High School Students
Transcript of Stress In High School Students
Students Lindsey Harris, Loryn Hosteler,
& Alissa Wertz Social Issue Social Issue Research Design Data Analysis Conclusions Data Works Cited There is an accumulative amount of stress
bearing on high school students. We wanted to identify the causes and amount of stress they cause high school students.
Through research, we have found that a number of different sources cause stress such as relationships and peer pressure, so we decided to test new variables, specifically for high school students. Research shows that 73% of students report high stress levels. Hypothesis: Survey/Questionnaire Data Gathering: Findings: (N/A). Stress Symptoms, Signs and Causes.

Population Study Can collect data. Anonymous, so people feel they can be honest Hard to give in class, because of ongoing lessons We used a survey, because we could reach more of a variety of people with it. People were also more willing to fill out a survey than do an interview. Open & Closed Survey Data was Collected:
When: During the School Day
Where: Concert Choir, Latin, AA English By giving the survey to various high school students with different genders, social groups, academic levels, and different future plans. Hypothesis: Learned... High school students who are involved in two or more variables are more stressed than students whom are only involved in one. School work and grades causes the most stress out of the three variables of jobs, extra curriculars, and school work. Surveys could have been been given to a larger number of people. We could have done interviews to get a true insight into a student's "stressful" life. We learned that in sociological it is important to collect enough data to prove the hypothesis. It is also important to have a well developed research method.
