Abstract (Summary)

This study compares the state, trait, and test anxiety scores of 145 college students with and without learning disabilities against categories such as demographics, general anxiety, test anxiety, and disability experience. This study used a questionnaire and compared answers among groups. The analysis indicated that students with learning disabilities have a statistically significant difference on trait, F(1, 143) = 9.83, p = .002, and test scores, F(1, 142) = 11.97, p = .001, when compared to students without disabilities. This study found that anxiety statistically significantly affects college students with learning disabilities in terms of age, years in school, gender, perception of grades, self-reported anxiety ratings, feelings of control, and Office of Disability experience. This study informs future research regarding many variables affecting college students with learning disabilities.
