Toward Improving the Magnitude of Relationships Between Test Anxiety.
Hedl, John J., Jr.; Bartlett, James
Two additional studies in long-term sentence memory were conducted to determine if certain critical relationships predicted by a cognitive model of test anxiety could be strengthened. Using the same sentence materials combined with different procedures, reliable test anxiety - memory relationships were generated by not constraining the initial encoding strategy or by placing time pressure at recall. The pattern of correlations was consistent with the model's predictions and indicated the mediating role of worry in comprehension. Encoding efficiency was more highly related to memory than test or state anxiety. The magnitude of component relationships was consistent with prior research. (Author)
