The Self-Worth Moderating Effect of Stressful Life Events and College Academic Achievement Public

A stressful life event can have adverse effects on a person’s life. This study aims to assess how self-worth moderates the effects of stressful life events on college students’ academic achievement. A total of 72 students attending a northeastern college participated in this survey. Participants completed the following measures: Contingencies of Self-Worth (CSW), Academic Success Inventory for College Students (ASICS), Life Events Checklist for DSM-5 Extended Version (LEC), and Reactions to Research Participation Questionnaire-Revised (RRPQ-R). It was hypothesized that an individual who experiences a stressful life event that has high self-worth will report high academic achievement, which was tested using multiple regression analysis. Results partially supported the hypothesis indicating that individuals who experienced a stressful life event had lower academic achievement when self-worth was low.
