A Quantitative Method to Evaluate Student Workload

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperOther


Academic life may at times be stressful and challenging for university students, due to various external and self-induced pressures, particularly in relation to handling academic assessments. Many students reported difficult to manage workload during the semester, which reduces their engagement with their subjects. Current methods that attempt to measure workload are based on qualitative student feedback and questionnaires. This research provides a quantitative numerical measure of the stress level caused by academic workload during the semester based on the assessment load for each individual student.
