academic workload, sleep quality


This study determined the relationship between the perceived academic workload andsleep quality of second-year radiologic technology students of DLSMHSI during the last monthof the first semester (Nov.18 to Dec. 18) academic year 2021-2022. An overall of 68 students partookin the study. The study used a descriptive quantitative correlational research design. Moreover, athree-part questionnaire was utilized. First was the demographic profile, including sex and monthlyfamily income. Second was a validated self-made questionnaire that identified the perceivedacademic workload. Lastly, a validated modified Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) questionnaire measured sleep quality. Data gathered were statistically analyzed using frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, Mann-Whitney U test, Kruskal-Wallis H test, and Spearman’s rho.

Based on the collected data, the conclusions obtained: (a) most of the respondents arefemale; (b) most of the respondents belong to upper middle income; (c) overall perceived academicworkload is heavy, wherein professional courses are perceived as heavy while general educationcourses are perceived as moderate in terms of synchronous and assessments; (d) overall sleepquality is poor; (e) there is no significant difference between the perceived academic workloadandsleep quality when grouped according to sex and monthly family income; and lastly, (f) thereisnosignificant relationship between the perceived academic workload and sleep quality. A weak positive relationship was present among the two variables. To conclude, the students’ perceivedacademic workload may not be the major source that affects the sleep quality; hence, other probable factors could affect the latter variable.
