Abstract

The study aimed to determine the level of physical activity engagement and gender as a predictor of perceived academic stress among selected Rehabilitative Sciences students of Cebu Doctors' University for Academic Year 2014-2015. The study was conducted to selected five hundred fifty-one (551) male and female Rehabilitative Sciences students from third and fourth year of Cebu Doctors' University. The study utilized a descriptive-regression research design. Two (2) research instruments were utilized, namely: International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) developed by Craig, Ainsworth, Booth, Pratt, Sjostrom and the International Consensus Group for the Development of an International Physical Activity Questionnaire (2000); and Perceived Academic Stress Scale (PASS) developed by Phoebe Amit and Maria Fe F. Abejar, MA, MAT, RPsyc (2014).


The result showed that out of five hundred fifty-one (551) respondents, majority or 70% of them were females while minority or 30% of them were males. In terms of level of physical activity engagement, majority of the population or 43% had a high level of physical activity engagement while minority or 20% had a moderate level of physical activity engagement. With regards to the level of perceived academic stress, majority of the population or 57% perceived a moderate level of academic stress while minority or 7% perceived a severe level of academic stress. Through statistical analysis of the data, the results found out that there was no significant association between gender and level of physical activity engagement with a p-value of 0.045. There was also no significant association between gender and level of perceived academic stress with a p-value of 0.020. The data analysis also showed that there is a weak negative correlation between level of physical activity engagement and level of perceived academic stress with a computed r value of -0.021. The result of the study also showed that level of physical activity engagement and gender was not a good predictor of perceived academic with a p-value of 0.831 and 0.013, respectively. Moreover, when taking into consideration both gender and level of physical activity engagement as a predictor of perceived academic stress, only 1.2% chance of the variations of the variables showed that it is a predictor of perceived academic stress.


The study concluded that there was only a little significance between gender and level of physical activity engagement to be a predictor of perceived academic stress of the respondents. For future studies, a comparative study could be done in various populations. Other research instruments could also be used to measure level of physical activity engagement and level of perceived academic stress for validation purposes. Other variables can also be taken into consideration such as demographics to strengthen the study.
