Sleep Quality, Stress Level, Academic Performance


Sleep and stress are two of the most crucial factors that can determine an individual’s performance throughout the day. This can affect not only the people’s daytime performance but also their academic performance. This paper aims to determine the relationships among sleep quality, stress level, and academic performance of senior high school students from De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute. A total of 206 randomly selected students participated in this study and answered the adopted Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index and Perceived Stress Scale questionnaires. The results of this study show that sleep quality heavily influences the student’s stress levels and vice versa. However, results show that sleep quality weakly influences a student’s academic performance and vice versa, and that stress levels weakly influence the respondents’ academic performances and vice versa. Therefore, it can be drawn from this study that there is no significant relationship among sleep quality and academic performance, and stress level and academic performance of the selected senior high school students. In contrast, there is a significant relationship between the students’ sleep quality and stress levels. The researchers recommend conducting further studies on these topics with a larger population and exploring more variables
