dc.description.abstract Investigates the theory Of achievement motivation and test anxiety (failing anxiety), and determines the construct validity of Hermans' Achievement Motivation Test (PMT) in order to clarify the constructs achievement motivation and test anxiety. It was hypothesised that men and women differ significantly regarding their achievement motivation and positive and negative failing anxiety scores on the PMT and that there are identifiable factors of personality, adjustment, study habits, study attitude and anxiety scores which correlate with the PMT-scales. The sample consisted of first year students at the Rand Afrikaans University in 1984. The results indicate that the PMT is a reliable measuring instrument for achievement motivation and positive and negative failing anxiety. Significant differences were found between men and women's achievement motivation and positive and negative anxiety scores. The results of the factor extension indicate that men and women' s achievement motivation is related to adjustment. Men's achievement motivation also correlates negatively with indices of conscious anxiety. It is found that to some extent positive failing anxiety relates to the absence of anxiety, social adjustment, academic achievement and intelligence. en
