The Effects of Sex and Anxiety on Mathematics Performance.
Wooley, Daniel
Sixty subjects, 30 males and 30 females, grades 7-9, were given an estimation and comparison mathematics test consisting of high and low difficulty level problems. Performances as measured by total error scores were compared as functions of sex and anxiety separately for high and low difficulty problems. There was a significant main effect of anxiety on low difficulty level problems. However, anxiety did not have a significant effect on the high difficulty level problems. The results did not support the hypothesis of a sex and a sex-anxiety interaction effect on mathematics performance. (Author)
