Noah Bowman is completing
research at Maryville College, involving 25 highly test-anxious
students separated randomly into treatment and control groups.
treated students practiced the achievement training twice, while the
control students received written information on controlling anxiety.
treated students attain a 1.7 SD benefit in anxiety reduction over the
controls. This is the sixth consecutive study in which
students attain a substantial anxiety reduction.

on Psychology suggests that we need to rely more on
technology to benefit the increasing number of troubled individuals.
