The Anxiety of Chinese Students.
MacDougall, Mary Ann; Corcoran, Miriam D.
In order to better understand and counsel Chinese students in the United States, the trait anxiety and test anxiety of 67 Chinese graduate students in education attending two universities in Taiwan were measured. Normative assessments for the total group showed that the sample fell within the normal range of U.S. students as defined in Test Manuals. T-test analyses yielded no statistically significant differences on scales or subscales between male and female subjects. Rankings of Trait Anxiety and Test Anxiety items found the item, "I feel confident and relaxed while taking a test", rated highest and the item, "During exams I get so nervous that I forget facts I really know," rated the lowest. Results underscored the importance that cross cultural studies have in effectively counseling and understanding foreign students in the United States. A Chinese translation of the questionnaire is appended. Contains 21 references. (DB)
