Statistics Anxiety and Mathematics Anxiety: Some Interesting Differences I
Balo_lu, Mustafa
Educational Research Quarterly, v27 n3 p38-48 Mar 2004
Statistics anxiety is hypothesized to be a closely related but a distinct construct from mathematics anxiety. However, many incorrectly conceive that statistics anxiety is the same construct as mathematics anxiety. Confusing statistics anxiety and mathematics anxiety is common among students as well as researchers. Frequent appearance of statistics courses within mathematics departments and statistically significant relationships between mathematics anxiety and statistics anxiety are two main reasons for this confusion. The present paper discusses current literature and points out similarities as well as differences between statistics anxiety and mathematics anxiety. The need for future correlational and factor analytic studies that empirically examine the relationship between the measures of statistics anxiety and mathematics anxiety is noted.
