Anxiety Toward Statistics and the Use of Computers
Journal of Computing in Higher Education Volume 11, Number 2, ISSN 1042-1726
Compared anxiety levels of graduate-level education majors using either hand-held calculators or statistical software in an educational research course. Found no statistically significant differences in anxiety by treatment group, but did find a significant treatment group effect by gender. Females using the software showed significantly higher levels of anxiety; males using the software demonstrated lower anxiety levels. (Author/DB)
