Summary

This study: (1) determines and quantifies the degree of fear expressed by graduate students at Arizona State University toward a research methods course (EF 500); identifies graduate students who indicate a high measure of anxiety for EF 500; and (3) compares them with students in whom measured fear is expressed to a low degree, is absent, or is denied. One hundred and eighteen graduate students were administered an attitude scale with five positions of equal value used to determine the degree of fear. Results indicated: (1) males and females showed little difference in fear expressed toward the course; (2) no significant differences were found between the older and younger students; (3) elementary and secondary teachers expressed no mean fear differences of significance; (4) the significance in differences between those in education and others may be related to the "person-oriented, thing-oriented concepts"; (5) the difference in fear expressed was not significant between those who had many graduate hours and those who had few; and (6) there was no significant difference shown between teachers who had little or a great deal of experience.
