Purpose: This study aims to better understand the factors influencing non-Qatari mothers’ perceived adjustment to blended learning during the COVID-19 pandemic in Qatar.
Method: A 34-item questionnaire was administered to 446 non-Qatari women living in Qatar during the pandemic. Exploratory Factor Analysis was used as a data reduction technique and to test the validity of the instrument. The Kaiser–Meyer–Olkin measure of sampling adequacy and Bartlett’s test of sphericity were calculated.

Four independent variables (1) mothers’ perception of school support during COVID-19 (2) work-life balance (3) students’ perceived adjustment to blended learning and (4) independent (innovative) learning significantly affect mothers’ perceived adjustment to blended learning during the pandemic.
