Sense of coherence : A quantitative study amongst students in year 8 and 9 (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka elevers känsla av sammanhang (KASAM). Skillnader mellan kön, årskurs, inriktning och samband mellan KASAM och bakgrundsvariabler har undersökts. Antonovskys livsfrågeformulär användes för att mäta elevernas KASAM. Deltagarna var flickor och pojkar i högstadiet (N = 79). Eleverna gick antingen traditionell skolgång eller med musikalisk inriktning. För att undersöka skillnaderna mellan variablerna genomfördes t-test. Persons korrelationsanalys utfördes mellan KASAM och bakgrundsvariabler för att undersöka samband. För att undersöka vilka item som var viktigast för eleverna inom KASAM genomfördes medelvärden. Det fanns skillnader mellan könen vilket även tidigare forskning stödjer. Resultatet uppvisade skillnader mellan årskurserna där elever i årskurs 8 hade högre KASAM än eleverna i årskurs 9 och inriktningarna där elever i traditionell skolgång hade högre KASAM än eleverna i musikklasserna, vilket diskuteras utifrån tidigare forskning. Samband fanns mellan KASAM och hur eleverna trivs i skolan, vilket är i linje med tidigare forskning. De items som var skattade högst av eleverna visade att de sällan känt sig orättvist behandlade, sällan befunnit sig i en obekant situation som de inte visste hur de skulle hantera och att de upplevt att deras liv hittills haft mål och mening.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to analyse students' sense of coherence (SOC). The differences between sex, year, course and the correlations between SOC and background variables have been examined. Antonovsky's Life Orientation Questionnaire was used to measure the students' SOC. The participants in the study were boys and girls in high school (N = 79). The students either attended traditional field of studies or music oriented studies. To analyse the differences between the variables t-test was carried out. Participants´ correlation analysis was conducted between SOC and background variables. To study which item was more important for students within SOC, averages was compared. The study found differences between the sexes, which is also supported by previous research. The result demonstrated higher levels of SOC in year 8 compared with year 9 and in traditional field of studies as against music oriented studies. These results are discussed within the context of previous research. A correlation between SOC and well-being in education was also found, which has also been established in former studies. The items most valued by the students showed that they were rarely treated unjustly, rarely situated in a unfamiliar situation and that they so far had experienced their lives to contain goals and meaning.
