The Influence of Pre-University Students' Mathematics Test Anxiety and Numerical Anxiety on Mathematics Achievement
Seng, Ernest Lim Kok
International Education Studies, v8 n11 p162-168 2015
This study examines the relationship between mathematics test anxiety and numerical anxiety on students' mathematics achievement. 140 pre-university students who studied at one of the institutes of higher learning were being investigated. Gender issue pertaining to mathematics anxieties was being addressed besides investigating the magnitude of the variables for mathematics test anxiety and numerical anxiety. The data revealed that there was a positive correlation between mathematics test anxiety and numerical anxiety on students' mathematics achievement. Results of the multiple regressions showed that all the variables of mathematics anxieties were statistically significant on students' mathematics achievement. Non-parametric tests also revealed that mathematics anxiety was statistically significant in measuring students' mathematics achievement.
