Horn, Jennifer L.; Dollinger, Stephen J.
Journal of School Psychology, v27 n4 p373-82 Win 1989
Sixth and seventh graders (N=239) responded to questionnaires examining sleep behavior and test anxiety on day of major examination in school and day with no major examination. Subjects also completed vigilance task on both days. Partial sleep loss did not adversely influence subjects' performance on task or examination; test anxiety was negatively related to examination performance. (Author/NB)
