Author: Farah, Adnan M. [عدنان محمد فرح]; Hammouri, Firas A. [فراس حموري]
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of bibliotherapy upon reducing test anxiety among Jordanian college students. Fifty five (55) Participants were randomly assigned either to experimental or controlled group. Students in the experimental group were exposed to a specially designed self-help bibliotherapy training program. The content of the program includes six areas thought to be important to overcome test anxiety. The study called for pre-post two group experimental design. An adapted Arabic version of Sarason's Anxiety Test was administered as a pre and post test to all participants. T-Test was used to determine the equivalence of the experimental and the control groups before treatment. Analysis of Covariance was used to test differences between groups at the post and follow-up test, statistical analysis revealed a significant difference between the two groups on the post test sores. The results of this study indicated that the bibliotherapy program did significantly help the experimental group to lower their test anxiety. The findings also suggest that test anxiety can be effected by various means of counseling and psychotherapy.
