Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of personal space invasion, test anxiety, and the effect on test scores. Using a between subject design, 24 undergraduate students will be randomly assigned to either a close range or far range seating arrangement, and will be given a word recall task. The distance between the subject and test administrator will be the independent variable. I expect my results to show that close range subjects will not be able to recall as many words as far range subjects due to a heightened sense of anxiety.
