Worry, Emotionality, and Task-Generated Interference in Test Anxiety: An Empirical Test of Attentional Theory
Deffenbacher, Jerry L.
Journal of Educational Psychology, 70, 2, 248-54, Apr 78
Students scoring in the upper and lower distributions of the Test Anxiety Scale solved anagrams under high stress (evaluative) and low stress (nonevaluative) conditions. The high-anxiety-stress group reported greater anxiety; rated themselves, their abilities, and the task more negatively; solved fewer anagrams; and estimated spending less time on the tasks.
