SCHOOL AND FAMILY BACKGROUND CORRELATES OF CHILDREN'S SCHOOL ANXIETY.
DUNN, JAMES A.
A STUDY WAS MADE OF THE RELATIONSHIP OF CHILDREN'S SCHOOL MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS TO (1) THEIR INTELLECTUAL, ACADEMIC, AND SOCIAL PERFORMANCE AND (2) CERTAIN FAMILY, SCHOOL, AND COMMUNITY BACKGROUND VARIABLES. LITERATURE PERTINENT TO THE PROBLEM IS REVIEWED. THE SAMPLE CONSISTED OF 400 ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS. GROUP INTELLIGENCE TESTS, AN ACHIEVEMENT TEST, THE GOODENOUGH DRAW-A-MAN TEST, A PEER RATING, A REVISED FORM OF SARASON'S TEST ANXIETY SCALE FOR CHILDREN, CUMULATIVE RECORD INFORMATION, AND A MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONNAIRE ABOUT SCHOOL ATTITUDES, PERCEPTION OF CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT, AND PERSONAL AFFECT WERE USED. A PEARSON PRODUCT-MOMENT CORRELATION MATRIX WAS GENERATED FOR 40 CASES. THE GENERAL EMOTIONAL TONE OF THE CLASSROOM IS RELATED TO THE AFFECTIVE IMAGE OF THE TEACHER AS PERCEIVED BY THE CHILD. PERSONAL AFFECT STATES SEEM MORE INVOLVED WITH TEACHER-PEER RELATIONSHIPS THAN WITH PERSONAL AND FAMILY BACKGROUND FACTORS. GREATER ATTENTION SHOULD BE PAID TO TEACHER-PUPIL AND PUPIL-PUPIL INTERACTION, AND TO THE CLASSROOM CLIMATE.
