Understanding Undergraduate Statistical Anxiety
McKim, Courtney
Journal of Research in Education, v24 n2 p204-210 Fall-Win 2014
The purpose of this study was to understand undergraduate students' views of statistics. Results reveal that students with less anxiety have a higher interest in statistics and also believe in their ability to perform well in the course. Also students who have a more positive attitude about the class tend to have a higher belief in their abilities. These findings can help statistics instructors plan course lessons helping ease student anxiety. Results also help researchers understand the impact of students' attitudes on learning outcomes.
