ABSTRACT

The present study investigates the personal well-being among school and university teachers in Arunachal Pradesh during the phase of the COVID-19 Pandemic concerning gender, teaching level and age range. The Personal well-being Score (PWS) prepared by Tim Benson, Joe Sladen, Andrew Liles and Henry W W Potts (2019) which is a short version of ONS4 is being used as a tool in our study. The survey sample consists of 68 teachers out of which 21 are school teachers (12 females and 9 males) and 47 are university teachers (25 females and 22 males). The data was collected from various schools and universities of Arunachal Pradesh. The scoring and analysis of the data is as per the PWS. Hypothesis testing is calculated using ‘F-Test’. The result showed that (1) There is no significant difference between the mean score of the personal well-being score among female and male teachers (2) There is no remarkable difference between the mean score of the personal well-being score among university and school teachers and (3) There is a compelling difference between the mean score of the personal well-being score among age groups 30-50 and 19-29 and the teachers of the age group 30-50 are having much better personal well-being than the teachers of the 19-29 age groups during the period of COVID-19 pandemic phase.
