Abstract

30 10th-grade, test anxious (Achievement Anxiety Test) students were randomly assigned in equal numbers to either a cognitive modification, systematic desensitization, or waiting-list control group. The Raven Standard Progressive Matrices (RSPM), State-Trait Anxiety Inventory--State form (STAI-S), and the Anxiety Differential were administered as pre- and posttests. Statistically significant Treatment × Time interactions emerged on the RSPM and the STAI-S, favoring an increase for the systematic desensitization treatment on the RSPM and a decrease for the cognitive modification treatment on the STAI-S.
