Abstract : The effects of anxiety on computer-assisted learning were investigated in four studies in which high school and college Ss were presented with science and mathematics materials by an IBM 1500 CAI system. The findings were discussed in terms of their implications for Spence-Taylor Drive Theory and Spielberger's Trait-State Anxiety Theory. (Author)
