Quality of Life, Preparatory School Students


The research aims to study the quality of life among preparatory school students in Baghdad, particularly in the context of current social circumstances, encompassing both male and female students. The study utilizes a quality-of-life scale developed by Noor Latif Abdul Zahra, comprising 54 items distributed across ten dimensions. These dimensions include physical health, mental skills, psychological well-being, resilience, optimism and satisfaction, self-independence and self-efficacy, job satisfaction, social support, social status, and moral values. The research problem revolved around the question: "Is there a sense of quality of life among fifth-grade preparatory school students (both males and females)?" The researchers established the scientific foundations of the scale and, after validating its reliability, distributed it to 40 preparatory school students (both males and females) in Baghdad. After statistically analyzing the data, the researchers found that preparatory school students (males and females) indeed perceive a high quality of life. Furthermore, female students outperformed their male counterparts in all dimensions and the overall quality of life score, and this achieves one of the sustainable development goals of the United Nations in Iraq which is (Quality Education). Based on their findings, the researchers recommend the utilization of the quality-of-life scale and suggest generalizing the results of the current study to other age groups of students. They also emphasize the need to consider the psychological issues faced by students and to develop adequate and effective strategies for addressing these issues within educational programs.
