The effects of test anxiety on behavioral inhibition were examined
using three computerized behavioral tasks. High test anxious subjects
demonstrated more behavioral inhibition than low test anxious subjects,
according to frequency measures on two of the three behavioral tasks.
Group differences in latency measures were not found, however. High
test anxious subjects reported higher levels of state anxiety than low
test anxious subjects. Increased behavioral inhibition was greater for
the Punishment condition, which involved the loss of points and negative
audio-visual feedback for incorrect responses, than for the Non-Reward
condition. Contrary to initial predictions, group differences were
found to be greater in the Non-Reward condition than in the Punishment
