International Journal of Educational Methodology, v4 n4 p219-226 2018
In this study, the relationship between high school students' test anxiety, academic procrastination behaviours, family attitudes and academic achievements were examined; the predicting of test anxiety, academic procrastination and family attitudes on the academic achievement was also investigated. The participants of the study were composed of 496 high school students. The end-of-term grade average of the students was defined as the criterion of their academic achievements. The students' test anxiety was measured by the Revised Test Anxiety Scale and the academic procrastination behaviours by the Academic Procrastination Scale. The family attitudes were measured by determining the frequency of the activities that support the academic achievement of the students. Data were analysed by correlation and regression methods. The findings indicate that there was a negative correlation between "achievement score" and "anxiety," "test irrelevant thinking" and "academic procrastination" while there was a positive correlation between "achievement score" and "family attitude." The findings also revealed that "tension", "bodily symptoms" and "family attitude" significantly predicted the "end-of-term grade average" positively, while "worry," "test irrelevant thinking" and "academic procrastination" significantly predicted the "achievement score" negatively. The findings were discussed in the light of literature along with the suggestions for further studies.
