Using the "Survey of Academic Orientations" to Predict Undergraduates' Stress Levels
Davidson, William B.; Beck, Hall P.
NACADA Journal, v26 n2 p13-20 Fall 2006
The "Survey of Academic Orientations" ("SAO") measures six orientations in college students believed to represent desirable or undesirable perspectives. Previous research established the connections of "SAO" orientations with grades and persistence. This study shows the extended utility of the "SAO" as an early warning indicator, enabling advisors to identify those students most likely to experience high levels of academic stress.
