Abstract

The fundamental concept of social awareness is the ability to evaluate the perspectives of other individuals, groups, or communities and to use that information in interactions with them. The current study aims to investigate the significant differences in higher secondary school students' social awareness levels according to gender, family type, and stream. This study uses the normative survey research approach to achieve its goals. The research is quantitative and descriptive. A sample of 100 upper secondary students from West Bengal's Purba Medinipur area was used in the current research. The researcher created self-administered, standardized social awareness instruments. Five life skills—problem solving, decision-making, empathy, effective communication, and dealing with stress, grief, and loss—were the subject of a social awareness questionnaire created for upper secondary school pupils. “Twenty questions on a five-point Likert scale with the options "Strongly Agree,""Agree,""Neutral,""Disagree," and "Strongly Disagree" made up the questionnaire”. The statistical methods employed in this investigation were the mean, standard deviation, and t-test. The study's conclusions show that there are no significant differences in social awareness amongst upper secondary school pupils in terms of gender, family structure, and stream.
