ABSTRACT

In the present investigation, effort has been made to ascertain the effects of Age and Educational Stream on Coping Behaviour in girls. A 2X2 factorial design was employed. The two factors studied were: Age (Junior/Senior) and Educational Stream (Science/Arts).There were four cells with forty subjects in each cell (Total sample consisted of 160 subjects). Coping Behaviour was measured by Carver’s COPE scale. Subjects were assessed on total test scores of COPE scale. Results of ANOVA show main effects of Age (Junior X=144.16:   Senior X=152.65)were found significant on total coping test score i.e. Senior girls were found better on total coping test scores than junior girls. Educational Stream (Science X=149.65: Art X=147.17) was found significant. Science Subjects were found superior in coping than subjects from Art stream. Interaction between age and educational stream were also found significant.
