## Statistics and maths anxiety are common and affect people's performance on maths and stats assignments

Task 8: Statistics and maths anxiety are common and affect people's performance on maths and stats assignments; women, in particular, can lack confidence in mathematics (Field, 2010). Zhang, Schmader, & Hall, (2013) did and intriguing study, in which students completed a maths test in which some put their own name onthe test booklet, wheares others were given a booklet that already had either a male of female name on it. Participants in the latter two conditions were told that they would use this other person's name for the purpose of the test. Women who completed the test using different name performed better that those who completed the test using own name. (There were no such effects for men.) The data below are a random subsmaple of Zhang et al.'s data. Enter them into SPSS and save the file as Zhang (2013) subsample.sav.
