Positive Reframing and the Test Performance of Test Anxious Students.
Kass, Rise Greenberg; Fish, Jefferson M.
Psychology in the Schools, v28 n1 p43-52 Jan 1991
Tested whether positive reframing could reduce worry and improve arithmetic test performance of highly test anxious third and fourth graders (n=60). Found that type of instruction (neutral, reassuring, or positive reframing) had no significant effect upon subsequent test performance. Both high and low test anxious children who received positive reframing scored significantly higher on state anxiety measure given posttest. (Author/NB)
