Abstract:
The study aimed to find the influence, if any, of higher secondary students’ stream of study on their educational adjustment and study involvement. Stratified random sample of 600 higher secondary students (300 girls; 300 boys) aged 16 to 19 years belonging to middle socio-economic status families of Kolkata was selected. 200 each of the students belonged to Arts, Commerce and Science streams. Socio-Economic Status Scale [5] was administered to determine the socio-economic status of students for controlling it. Adjustment Inventory for School Students [10] and Study Involvement Inventory [2] were administered to assess educational adjustment and study involvement of participants. Mean and Standard Deviation values were computed. One-Way ANOVA was conducted. Results indicated significant influence of streams of study on academic adjustment and study involvement of higher secondary students. The sampled Arts students seemed most suited for academic activities at the higher secondary stage; they were highest in educational adjustment and most dedicated to studies.
