Abstract

We present the results of a national survey designed to determine the characteristics and correlates of teaching anxiety among college psychology teachers. The survey focused on respondents' experience with teaching anxiety, the frequency and intensity of the experience, and the demographic correlates of such anxiety. The vast majority of respondents reported having experienced some type of teaching anxiety, and a sizable number reported it to be a continuing problem for them. Several stimuli that trigger teaching anxiety were identified. Academic rank and teaching experience emerged as correlates of the experience. Suggestions for continued study focus on searching for other correlates, coping mechanisms, and preventive measures.
