Abstract

The effects of color paper on examination scores will be examined in the context of test-taking environments. Twenty-five students receiving extra credit will be recruited for this study. This project was a between-subjects design to address weather the three colors (neon green, pastel pink, and white) impact each group’s test score. It is hypothesized that participants taking exams on neon green and pastel pink would perform better than those on white paper. It is anticipated that results will confirm the hypothesis, thus indicating the need for additional research on the effect of paper color on exams.
