Madhulika Sharma, JP Verma

This study was undertaken to investigate the effect of eight weeks meditation on children’s test anxiety level. A sample of 30 boys in the age range 14 to 16 years was selected for the study. They were divided into 2 groups having 15 subjects each, one group was given meditation whereas the second group served as control. The experimental group was given mindfulness meditation 20 minutes morning and evening for five days a week till eight weeks. Test Anxiety of the subjects was measured before and after the training by using the Test Anxiety Questionnaire developed by Nist and Diehl (1990) in experimental and control groups. The data so obtained was analysed by using the analysis of covariance technique. The result suggested that the subjects in the experimental group had significant reduction in their test anxiety level in comparison to that of control group.
