Keywords : Stress Level, Academic Achievement, Grit Traits

Abstract : Traditionally, academic achievement and success is often measured by cognitive abilities such as aptitude and intelligence. However, the grit concept has received attention from researchers as the predictor for academic achievement. Dimensions of grit which are Perseverance of Effort (PE) and Consistency of Interest (CI) plays a different role in an individual. Hence, this quantitative study is conducted to examine the relationship of grit traits on academic achievement and stress level among University Malaysia Sabah (UMS) students. In addition, it also examines the differences of dimensions of grit between gender and differences of grit on students’ academic achievement. The study sample consisted of 220 UMS students and was conducted using two instruments, 12-item Grit Scale (Grit-O) and Depression, Anxiety, Stress Scale (DASS-21). Result findings showed no significant relationship of dimensions of grit on academic achievement. Whereas, there is a variety of finding for the relationship of dimensions of grit on stress level. However, only CI is influenced by stress level, while PE does not have any influence. The differences towards dimensions of grit and gender and grit on students’ academic achievement also showed no significant difference which explains that students based on gender and academic achievement categories have the same level of grit. Hence, the overall findings of this study contribute to the increased understanding of the complexities related to the relationship of grit on academic achievement and stress level. Additional limitations and implications are presented along with offerings for further research recommendations.

Keywords : Adaptasi, Kebahagiaan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Pelajar

Abstract : Kebolehan beradaptasi dalam kalangan mahasiswa kurang mendapat perhatian sedangkan ianya penting bukan sahaja ketika menuntut ilmu bahkan dalam menempuh alam pekerjaan juga. Ianya juga penting untuk memahami keadaan sebenar yang dihadapi mahasiswa ketika ini berikutan perubahan drastik sistem pendidikan yang tertumpu kepada interaksi atas talian. Turut menjadi perhatian tentang isu kesihatan mental yang dilihat meningkat dalam kalangan pelajar universiti bukan sahaja di Malaysia tetapi di Indonesia sehingga menjadi tanda tanya tentang tahap kebahagiaan mahasiswa pada ketika ini. Oleh itu, objektif kajian ini adalah untuk mengkaji tentang kebolehan beradaptasi dan kebahagiaan dalam kalangan mahasiswa di negara Malaysia dan Indonesia. Kajian ini menggunakan pendekatan kuantitatif dan seramai 120 responden dari Malaysia dan Indonesia telah terlibat dengan kajian ini. Soal selidik yang digunakan dalam kajian ini adalah I-Adapt Measure dan positive and negative affective schedule (PANAS). Keputusan kajian mendapati bahawa tidak terdapat perbezaan antara adaptasi dan subskala krisis, budaya, interpersonal,pembelajaran, fizikal, kreativiti dan ketidakpastian antara pelajar Malaysia dan Indonesia. Namun begitu terdapat perbezaan dari segi subskala tekanan antara Malaysia dan Indonesia. Keputusan juga menunjukkan terdapat perbezaan kebahagian dari segi subskala emosi negatif antara Malaysia dan Indonesia. Keputusan juga menunjukkan tidak terdapat perbezaan kebahagian dari segi subskala emosi positif antara Malaysia dan Indonesia. Namun dilihat bahawa mahasiswa Indonesia mempunyai tingkat kebahagiaan yang lebih tinggi kerana kurang memiliki emosi negatif. Dilihat bahawa kebolehan beradaptasi juga mempunyai hubungan signifikan terhadap kebahagiaan. Kajian seperti ini perlu dilakukan dengan memperluaskan lagi lokasi kajian iaitu melibatkan mahasiswa darinegara-negara Asia yang lain. Implikasi dan cadangan kajian turut dibincangkan.

Abstract : Online learning assistance for early childhood during the Covid-19 pandemic is a challenge in itself. Thus, this phenomenon is clearly seen in several PAUD (Early Childhood Education) schools in Tangerang. Based on Focus Group Discussions and questionnaires on parents of students, it was found that parents' confidence in accompanying children and children's learning achievement at home decreased due to online learning which was considered difficult. According to Coleman and Karraker (2000), parenting self-efficacy is a parent's assessment of their competence in the role of parents or parents' perceptions of their ability to positively influence the behavior and development of their children. One of the efforts to help parents is through parenting class activities designed to enhance or improve the role of parents in childcare. Parenting class is a specific intervention designed to improve the overall quality of parents which aims to help mothers and fathers relate to their children (Scott & Gardner, 2015). This study aims to determine the effectiveness of parenting classes in increasing parenting self-efficacy in early childhood parents during the Covid-19 pandemic. Research subjects (N = 294) in this study were parents / learning companions of early childhood education students, using non-probability sampling techniques with purposive sampling method. Measurements conducted using Paired Sample T-Test. Based on the comparison of pre-test and post-test measurements, the results obtained are the value of t = -71,365, p = 0.000 <0.05, thus there is a significant difference in parenting self-efficacy both in the pre-test and post-test in parents after parenting class.

Keywords : Adults, COVID-19, Children, University Students, Psychological Effects

Abstract : The COVID-19 pandemic has psychologically affected young and old alike. Loneliness, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and sleep problems have occurred in different parts of all societies. Especially for children and adolescents, getting away from the social environment and attending online lessons while sitting at home has caused a problematic process along with some other obstacles. University students had to move away from the campus environment, which is believed to be a satisfying social atmosphere and academic environment for them, and they had to move back to their hometowns due to strict restrictions and some lockdown implementations. For adults, having multi-faced responsibilities such as having children and taking care of many family members as well as fulfilling those changing responsibilities is emotionally challenging. Older adults have gone through a long process of social isolation, loneliness, depression, and negative stereotypes about age, and they have had difficulties in accessing their basic needs. By considering the different needs of every age group, it is essential to understand how everyone is affected during the pandemic process. The aim of study is to examine the psychological effects, risk factors, age-specific problems experienced in each age group during COVID-19 and to raise awareness about the protective factors and elements that can increase psychological well-being.

Keywords : Adolescents, Curiosity, Strengths Use

Abstract : Students in the adolescent stage experience a plethora of challenges as they transition from childhood to adulthood. Among students, these challenges are compounded by the abrupt shift to online classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There may be undesirable behavioral and social outcomes in adolescence, but it cannot be merely assumed that these outcomes raise threats; several aspects seen as challenging may turn out to stimulate positive progress. Like other positive psychology studies, this undertaking sought to appreciate the optimistic and emotionally gratifying aspects of human behavior and experiences. It describes the curiosity and strengths used by adolescents that contribute to their life, and provides information on the examined relationship between the components of curiosity (exploration and absorption) and strengths used, as well as the possible differences of the responses when grouped based on sex, grade level, academic performance, and membership in organizations. Findings showed that most adolescents use their strengths 70 percent to 80 percent of the time, albeit to a low degree. They also have a fairly large amount of motivation to seek and experience new knowledge and experiences. Furthermore, curiosity and exploration, as well as strengths use, significantly differ between adolescents in the secondary level and those in the tertiary level of education. Curiosity and strengths use do not differ in terms of sex, academic performance, and participation in co-curricular activities. More so, a significant positive relationship between curiosity and strength use was found.
