The impact of anxiety on the academic assessment
MetadataShow full item record
There are significant differences between the performance and competence of the students learning English language. During examination some students do not perform according to their competence. These differences arise because of affective factors like motivation and anxiety. It is usually believed that meritorious students perform well under pressure while for less meritorious students their performance decreases under pressure. I will try to see to what extent it is true. In my thesis I tried to assess the student's anxiety level using self report questions. Then I compared their scores with their performance to see whether the assumption is true and to what extent anxiety affects their performance.
