Personal Problems of Seventh-Day Adventist Academy Students
Crosby, Ellen; Freed, Shirley; Gabriel, Elvin
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v15 n1 p77-93 2006
The Personal Problems Checklist for Adolescents (PPC-A) was administered to students in 14 Adventist academies for the purpose of determining the extent of their personal problems. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the data. The results showed that the top 10 problems were: (1) poor study habits; (2) worrying about future job or college; (3) not enough money; (4) not enough exercise; (5) being tired and having no energy; (6) no time to relax; (7) poor sleeping habits; (8) bored in school; (9) having trouble concentrating; and (10) being shy. There were differences found among, (a) the types of academies; (b) male and female students; and (c) age groups. Self-supporting academies reported more frequent problems; females reported more problems than males; and problems increased by age. All 13 scales of the problems on the PPC-A, were significantly correlated. (Contains 3 tables.)
