Performance, Anxiety and Academic Hardiness of Mathematics among College Students in Arunachal Pradesh Especially in Pasighat

Nikita Rai


In this paper, I am trying to show the relationship between mathematics performance, anxiety and academic hardiness in college students in Arunachal Pradesh especially in Pasighat. The sample comprised 210 (120 males and 90 females) B.Sc. students of Colleges in Pasighat in Arunachal Pradesh state. As per the hypothesis of the investigation, the data analysis is divided into two parts: The relationship between three variables is evaluated in performance, anxiety and academic hardiness while no significant correlation between anxiety with academic hardiness is detected [P>.05]. Concurrently, significant negative relationships between two subscales of performance with anxiety in mathematics (math test with mathematics performance [p<.01] as well as numerical task with mathematics performance [p<.05]) are detected. Anxiety in mathematics as a special kind of state anxiety occurs in the academic situations which is not compatible with the obtained results from the academic hardiness.
