Description

Test anxiety is relevant to anyone that has faced a difficult exam, and while there are many different approaches to learning information and preparing for tests, the time put into preparing is most important. The current research seeks to understand connections between test anxiety and studying behavior. Participants in this experiment were asked a multitude of questions regarding their attitudes towards exams and the amount of time they spent studying, along with general personality questions. We expect that people who put more hours into studying for exams will consequently worry more about doing well on exams while people who worry less about doing well will study less. We also expect that women will study more and have more anxiety about doing well then males.
