Abstract : A major reason for student voluntary withdrawal is expressed as his anxiety in the naval aviation training environment. Numerous research efforts have been conducted to analyze the relationship of anxiety to attrition. Generally, these efforts have been unsuccessful, or partially successful at best, as an objective and reliable measure of anxiety has been unavailable for use in research evaluations. A review of research literature suggests that: (a) High levels of anxiety may be causally related to performance decrement and subsequent attrition. (b) Anxiety is a behavior expression or symptom of poor or inefficient student performance in the Navy aviation training program. Both hypotheses appear to warrant further research and evaluation.
