Student Test Anxiety as Related to the Personality Characteristics of Their Teachers.
Sass, Edmund J.; Meyer, Marie
The research question investigated was: What relationship, if any, exists between teacher personality characteristics associated with self-actualization and the test anxiety levels of their students. Teacher personality characteristics in 6 schools were assessed with the Shostrom Personal Orientation Inventory. The Sarason Test Anxiety Scale for Children was administered to their pupils. Students in grades 4 through 8 were the subjects of the research. At the junior high school level it was found that a significant relationship existed between teachers with high spontaneity in combination with high self-regard and relatively low test anxiety in their students. Results approached significance for elementary school students. The implications of these findings for education and selection of teachers for the junior high level are considered. (JD)
