Perceived Stress Mediation the Effect of Sense of School Belonging on Social Adjustment on 7th Grade Students of Pondok Pesantren
First-year of students in Islamic boarding school (Pondok Pesantren) is closely related to the process of adjustment, the process to get a sense of comfort in school, and likely will get the feeling of stress due to stay away from home. If students can pass through it and have a good ability to adapt themselves to the environment, then the academic performance and association in the boarding school are expected to be better too. Therefore, the researcher conducted a quantitative research method that aims to prove the influence of sense of school belonging to social adjustment mediated by perceived stress. Research subjects amounted to 296 students of 7th grade in Pondok Pesantren by using purposive sampling technique. The data were collected using a scale or questionnaire related to the three variables and analyzed using Hayes mediation regression analysis with SPSS 23 for Windows. The result of this research is that perceived stress cannot be the mediator for the effect of sense of school belonging and social adjustment. And according to this research also turns out the sense of school belonging and social adjustment does not require the mediation variable to strengthen the influence of both.
