Effect of Anxiety, Response Mode, and Subject Matter Familiarity on Achievement in Computer-Assisted Learning.
Leherissey, Barbara L; And Others
Effects of trait and state anxiety levels (low, medium, and high) and response modes (reading, covert, modified multiple choice, constructed response) on posttest achievement for familiar and technical materials dealing with heart disease were investigated. Learning materials were presented to 148 subjects via computer-assisted instruction. High trait anxiety was associated with high state anxiety for all groups. Constructed response and reading groups performed significantly better than covert and multiple choice groups on technical but not familiar materials. However, the constructed response group had higher levels of state anxiety and longer learning times than other response mode groups. (Author)
