studies effectiveness and lead to poor academic performance
and attrition. It goes on to affirm that, students who
experienced stressful life events also reported worse health
outcomes and reduced quality of life.

the Study
This part of the research involves concepts as the
foundation of study. This study aims to identify the effects
and benefits of stress level of grade 9 students. Figure I
shown for the input, the researchers seeks for the profile of
the students gender, age, monthly family income, highest
educational attainment of father, highest educational
attainment of mother, number of siblings in the family and
grade point average. The process included the collection of
data through used of indicators, analysis and interpreting the
data. The output of the study is to asses the students about
the effect of the stress in their academic performance.
Achieved the good academic performance as a feedback.
Questionnaire about Stress Level of
Grade 9 students in APVNHS
This chapter presents the
research, subject of the study,
sampling procedure and
techniques, data gathering
procedure, data gathering
instrument and the statistical
treatment to use.
Research Design
This study will focus on the
quantitative research design.
According to Alliaga and Gunderson,
quantitative research is an inquiry
into a social problem, phenomena by
gathering numerical data are analysed
using mathematically based methods.
According to Cresswell,
quantitative research is selected ( i.e
cause and effect thinking, use of
measurement and observation, and test
of theories) employs strategies of
inquiry such as experiments and
survey, and collects data on
predetermined instrument that yield
statistical data.
According to Alliaga, non-
experimental design is used
when the treatment is not
possible as the independent
variables naturally exist, and
respondents will be randomly
distributed into every group.
According to DevinKowalczyk,
non-experimental is the label given
to a study when a research cannot
control, manipulate or alter the
predictor variable or subject, but
instead, relies on interpretation,
observation or interaction to come
to a conclusion.
Sampling Technique and
This study will use the Purposive or
Judgemental Sampling because we will be
going to choose people whom we are sure
could correspond to the objectives of our
study, like selecting those w/ rich
experiment or interest in our study. The
study will utilized the 100% participation of
the Grade 9 Students of Antonio P. Villar
National High School in order to get a
better result.
Data Gathering Procedure
After collecting all data from the Grade
9 Students of Antonio P. Villar National
High School through a research tool, a
statistical treatment was applied as a basis
of our conclusion and recommendation as
the mean scores was calculated. The items,
which the highest value on percentage scale,
were interpreted as finding in the light of
objectives of study. The generalized of
finding are rise to conclusions. In the light
of conclusion recommendations were made.
Data Gathering Instruments
The researchers will use a
questionnaire – checklist as the main
data-gathering instrument. This
includes a questionnaire to gather
personal and family background of the
students, personality type of the
students and a tool to measure the
stress level of the students. Below are
the contents of the questioners to be
administered to respondents.
Statistical Treatment
The following statistical treatment
was used to answer the research
questions of thus study;
1. For the profile of the respondents,
frequency counts and percentage
counts and percentage was used.
2. To answer the problem 2, about the
stress level among the Grade 9
Students of APVNHS ,
we determined the weighted mean for
each indicator the overall weighted
mean. Of the three categories namely:
Physical, Emotional, and also Mental
3. To determined the significant
relationship between the stress level
among the Grade 9 students pearson r:
coefficient of correlation was used.
4.To determined the significant
differences between the stress level
among the Grade 9 students and
their profile variables, the ANOVA
or Analysis of Variance was used..
