The Effects of Test Anxiety, Course Importance, and Future Orientation on Persistence and Academic Performance.
Bennett, Charles R.; Entin, Elliot E.
The theory of achievement motivation with a modification involving future orientation, was used to predict that: (a) subjects who perceive a course examination to have future implications should perform better than those who do not; (b) Highly anxious subjects who perceive the course examination to have future implications should persist longer at the task than low anxious subjects who are also future oriented; and (c) these predicted differences are intensified in the group that perceives the course as important and attenuated in the group that does not. The persistency hypothesis was supported, bu the performance hypothesis was not. The third hypothesis was only partially supported. (Author)
