Liu, Dianzhi; Zhang, Ronghua
Frontiers of Education in China, v1 n2 p316-327 Jun 2006
This study is conducted with self-developed questionnaire on 910 middle school students, aimed at describing middle school students' academic subjective well-being and exploring its influential factors. Results show that (1) Academic subjective well-being of middle school students is generally low and there exist differences in different schools and grades. Students from non-key middle schools have lower academic subjective well-being than those from the key schools. Grade 2 students in both junior and senior middle schools have the lowest academic subjective well-being. (2) Factors directly affecting middle school students' academic subjective well-being are academic experience and the present academic achievements with the former playing a major role. (3) Factors indirectly influencing middle school students' academic subjective well-being are social pressure and expected academic achievements, both of which influence students' academic subjective well-being through students' academic experience or their present academic achievements.
