Student subjective well-being has been shown to correlate positively with achievement (particularly in primary school students) and feeling accepted and fitting in at school (particularly in secondary school students).
The SSWQ is a 16-item measure for assessing subjective wellbeing of pupils in the school environment. It includes 4 key areas of school life and wellbeing looking deeper into school connectedness and belonging, academic efficacy, joy of learning and educational purpose. School connectedness is linked to levels of anxiety and Emotionally Based School Avoidance (EBSA)
Subscale scores can be used as standalone wellbeing indicators or summed to create a Overall Student Wellbeing composite scale.
