Does school environment as perceived by higher secondary students determine their adjustment and study involvement?
Author(s): Debasree Sadhukhan and Paromita Ghosh
The study aimed to find out whether adjustment and study involvement of higher secondary students could be predicted on the basis of their perceived school environment. Stratified random sampling was employed to select a sample of 600 higher secondary students (300girls; 300 boys) aged 16 to 19 years belonging to middle socio-economic status families of Kolkata. Data were collected from the subjects (by administering standardized tools) in groups of about 20 subjects each. School Environment Inventory (Misra, 2002) , Adjustment Inventory for School Students (Sinha and Singh, 2007)  and Study Involvement Inventory (Bhatnagar, 2004)  were used to assess perception of school environment, adjustment and study involvement respectively. Socio-Economic Status Scale (Meenakshi, 2004)  was administered to ascertain the socio-economic status of students for controlling it. Mean, Standard Deviation and Multiple Regression Analyses comprised statistical treatment of data. Results indicate that student-perceived school environment significantly predicted their adjustment and study involvement. Thus it is recommended that students (particularly senior ones) must be involved in moulding the school environment so that their adjustment and study involvement are facilitated.
