The purpose of the study was to determine the stress level during COVID-19 pandemic amongst the College women in Delhi, India. A total of 293 College women studying in Gargi College, New Delhi, India were the subjects of this study. For the study, the technique of respondent-driven sampling was utilized to collect data online, through the medium of a Google Form. Since COVID’19 and the implementation of multiple lockdowns from March 2020, these college women have been studying via the virtual mode on different online platforms and different Learning Management systems. The Student Stress Inventory (SSI) was developed by Mohammad Aziz Shah et al.
in 2015 and its validity and reliability established on Malaysian youth. As Malaysia is a part of Asia, it was considered useful for this study on the College women in Delhi, India. The SSI consists of 40 negative questions which cover four subscales of stress i.e. Physical, Interpersonal, Academic and Environmental. The resultant data was computed and analyzed using descriptive research methodology. The obtained result showed that 57% of undergraduate college women have moderate levels of stress, 40% have mild levels of stress and only 3% respondents suffered from severe levels of stress. According to the mean value of a 4-point ordinal Likert scale, majority of the college women were moderately stressed due to academic and environmental factors during COVID-19 and subsequent lockdowns, which is supported by other research studies.Pages: 92-97 | 117 Views 12 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
