EFFECTS OF COMPETITION AND ANXIETY UPON THE SUCCESS OF CHILDREN IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.
COBES, CATHY J.; JONES, J. CHARLES
THE CHILDREN'S FORM OF THE TAYLOR MANIFEST ANXIETY TEST WAS USED TO DIVIDE FIFTH-GRADE MALE STUDENTS INTO HIGH AND LOW ANXIETY GROUPS IN ORDER TO COMPARE THE EFFECTS OF ANXIETY AND COMPETITION UPON PERFORMANCE. A 2-WAY ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE WAS USED (120 SUBJECTS) TO DETERMINE THE EFFECT OF THE PRESENCE OF PEERS UPON THE PERFORMANCE OF MEMBERS OF THE 2 ANXIETY LEVELS. SUBJECTS GENERALLY PERFORMED BETTER IN THE PRESENCE OF PEERS, AND ANXIETY DID NOT HAVE A SIGNIFICANT EFFECT IN LOWERING PERFORMANCE. THE AUTHORS STATE THAT THE FINDINGS ARE AT VARIANCE WITH MOST PREVIOUS RESEARCH. (JK)
