To re-examine the relationship between academic achievement, test anxiety, perfectionism, and achievement motivation, a random sample of 250 female high school seniors was selected and then given a questionnaire containing questions on last three constructs. Academic achievement was measured by students' grade point average. The analysis of the collected data revealed that the more a student has test anxiety the lower her grade point average, just as the latter's relationship with motivation is the other way around. Self-confidence, hard work, and resilience were also correlated with academic achievement. Thus, it appears that increasing motivation and decreasing test anxiety is in order if improvement in academic achievement is desired.
