Alternative Title

Anxiety and Academic Achievement

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate classroom anxiety and overall academic achievement in immigrant and international students, comparing their anxiety and achievement to those of students born in the United States. A sample of 132 College of Wooster students was used. 114 of these students were born in the United States and the other 18 students were born outside of the United States. Participants responded to an online survey, self-reporting their levels of stress and confidence in different academic tasks. Results suggested no significant differences between the two groups related to stress or confidence levels. Additional analysis and implications for future research are described.
