Stress : An examination of students stress level - Practice and non practice (English)
Abstract [sv]

Practical and theoretical learning are methods that are used in schools as a way to prepare students for the working life. Within the practical learning knowledge is not only acquired to learn in practice, but the students must also be able to apply their theoretical knowledge to what he/she does. Against this background, the aim of the study was to investigate the importance of practical learning for students in college / university level and how they are experiencing the stress that may arise out of the loss of practical learning during their education, as well as their vision for working life after completing their education. The population of the study consisted of N = 36, which 18 of these had used both practical and theoretical learning and the remainder had only used theoretical learning. The method was a questionnaire survey with a high proportion of fixed alternative answers according to likert scales. The analysis tool was SPSS and to produce descriptive statistics crosstabulations were used. Independent-Samples T Test was also used in order to find the significance of the variables between practice and non-practice during education and the statements. The results based on crosstabulation tests between the different variables, showed that whether students used practice or not in their education, they consider that the practice leads to improved job opportunities, and that students with practice in their education consider that they generally have more control over their study time and what is required of them in school.
