Description

The purpose of this study is to address the effects of COVID-19 and stress on undergraduate students studying social work at Salem State University. This is a primarily quantitative, non-experimental cross sectional research study. We will be collecting data using the perceived stress scale. In relation to feeling stress, the study will be looking at demographic information including age, gender, race, and grade level. The data will be tested using ANOVA with the purpose of finding the mean between each different population group. Our hypothesis for this study is that online learning, due to the COVID- 19 pandemic, negatively affects students' mindset studying social work at Salem State University. The data synthesized to form this hypothesis includes the independent variable COVID-19 virus.
