Ibrahim Ma’ali


The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of a group guidance program on improving motivation and reducing test anxiety to study among Basic Stage pupils. The sample of the study consisted of (450) pupils who were randomly selected from (12) sections of Grade Nine in Amman. Two sections were chosen randomly from each school to form two groups: experimental and control. The group guidance program was applied on the experimental group in each school. The result was analyzed using ANCOVA to establish the differences between the pre-test and post-test between the two groups. The results indicated significant differences between the two groups of the study. The text anxiety decreased and the motivation to study increased among the experimental group.
