Lushene, Robert E.; And Others
Within the context of a counterbalanced design, 63 female students were tested with a computerized Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) and a group booklet mode of administration. State anxiety was measured before and after each testing session. The correlation between the computer-based MMPI scale scores and the booklet administration scores were shown to be as high as or higher than the correlations reported for comparisons between booklet and card form administrations of booklet-booklet administrations for a college population. When compared to the booklet version, the computer mode initially produced relatively high state anxiety levels. By the end of the test, however, no difference in state anxiety levels between the two modes of administration was found. (Author)
