Anxiety and the Retrieval of Information from Long Term Memory.
Wendell, Anne-Sojourner; Tobias, Sigmund
This study investigated whether test anxiety affected performance because: (1) examination stress interfered with retrieval of previously learned material, or (2) initial learning was less thorough. Results indicated significant negative correlations with acquisition indices and partially supported a retrieval deficit. Suggestions for further research are made. (Author)
