About Academic Stress Scale

Academic Stress Scale (ASS; Kohn & Frazer, 1986): The ASS is a 35 item scale designed to measure the students’ perceived academic stressors. Respondents report their level of stress under 35 different stressful situations (e. g., examination, excessive homework) using a 5 point Likert response format (1=not at all stressful, 2=rarely stressful, 3=sometimes stressful, 4=fairly stressful, 5=extremely stressful). Scores are obtained by summing the reported scores for each item.
A higher score is indicative of greater stress. The ASS was translated into Chinese for the purpose of this study by the researchers to assess the students’ perceived academic stress. Two items were deleted from the original scale (“irrelevant classes toward major” and “evaluating classmates’ work”), because they are inappropriate in the Chinese high school context. High school students in China do not have a major and their school work is evaluated by the teacher, not their classmates. The items were then translated literally back into English and the authors resolved discrepancies in the intended meanings and wording of the items.
The reading level of the ASS-C is appropriate for 12th-grade high school students in this study. The ASS has satisfactory internal consistency as measured by Cronbach’s alpha and split-half reliability (.92 and .86, respectively; Kohn & Frazer, 1986).
