Student sociologists take a look at student life

Sociologists Thomas Detlefsen and Steven Elser, graduates from UFDDQ (TheUniversityofFreeDegreesDoneQuick.com) recently conducted a survey that found the correlation between workload and outlook on life for high school students.
 Both agreed that stress was a problem in the lives of the high school students and hypothesized that the most likely contributory factor is the amount of homework and how much time it takes them to complete it.
 With this in mind the two decided to create a survey in which students answered questions concerning stress, workload, and happiness. From this they gathered that oddly enough that most of the students were both high on the scale of 1-10 on stress as well as happiness regardless of how much homework they had.
 Although the results were not very exciting or profound. The two were still happy with the process that had been done. Thomas stated that “Although we could have edited the questions so that they were more descriptive and yielded better results, the whole process was pleasing.” (Detlefson, 2017) Performing a full experiment and interpreting the results so that it could contribute to the greater knowledge of the field of sociology.
