The present study aimed to investigate the role of test anxiety components and alexithymia in the academic burnout of students. The method of this study was descriptive and correlational. The statistical population consisted of all male and female students studying at Azarbaijan Shahid Madani University in the 2016-2017 academic year that based on Krejcie and Morgan table, 355 students were selected by multistage cluster sampling method. Toronto Alexithymia Scale (Bagby et al, 1994), Test of anxiety (Friedman, 1997) and Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student Survey (Shaufeli et al, 2002) formed the basis for data gathering. Data were analyzed using software SPSS 16 and statistical tests Pearson correlation and multiple regression (stepwise). The results showed that there was a positive significant relationship between the components of test anxiety and alexithymia with academic burnout (P<0/01). Also, multiple regression results showed that from among the components of test anxiety, cognitive error component and from among the components of alexithymia, component difficulty in identifying feelings they could predict section of the variance scores academic burnout. Given the close relationship between these three parameters together, it is necessary that this relation be considered in any curriculum planning and affairs reform.

Exercise and physical activity remains one of the very important parts of the education system. The purpose of the present study was to compare the happiness, self-esteem and anxiety of schoolchildren participating in and those not participating in the design of an interdisciplinary sports Olympiad. The research method is causal-comparative. The population of the study consisted of second year 2013-2014 female students from Arak. Multi-stage cluster sampling technique was employed to select 155 each for the participating and non-participating students. The instruments were Oxford Happiness Inventory, Catholic Anxiety Inventory, Cooper Smith Self-Esteem Questionnaire. the data was analyzed using MANOVA based on SPSS version 22software. Findings showed that happiness and self-esteem of students of schools participating in the Olympiad sports program were 95% higher than those who did not participate in the project, but there was no significant difference between the two groups' anxiety. Also, the results showed that school students who run the sport Olympiad within the school had higher happiness and higher self-esteem than students who did not run the school. Therefore, it is recommended to improve vitality, happiness, and self-esteem of the students through increasing their inclusion in exercise and physical activity, this project be implemented in all schools.

The purpose of the present study was to investigate the prevalence of mathematics anxiety in the outbreak of COVID-19 and role of mathematics motivated strategies for learning (cognitive, metacognitive, informational and non-informational resources management) and mathematic resilience in discriminating the membership in high school students (with low academic performance) with low and high mathematics anxiety. The research method was descriptive-correlation. The statistical population of this study consisted of all male high school students of Bahar city from Hamadan province (N=621). The study sample consisted of 247 male students who were selected by randomized cluster sampling. Mathematics Motivated Strategies for Learning (Liu & Lin, 2012), mathematics resilience (Kooken et al., 2016) and Mathematics Anxiety (Bai et al., 2009) scales were used for data collection. One-sample t-test, Pearson correlation coefficient and stepwise discriminant analysis were used for data analysis. Descriptive analysis indicated that 67.21% of students had low mathematics anxiety in the outbreak of COVID-19. According to One-sample t-test, students were in a low status in terms of using mathematical learning strategies and high status in mathematics anxiety. There was a negative relationship between mathematical learning strategies (cognitive, meta-cognitive, informational and non-informational resources management) and mathematics anxiety. Also, only the role of metacognitive strategies and mathematical resilience in predicting group membership of students with high and low math anxiety was significant. Teaching mathematics learning strategies and mathematics resilience to students with low mathematics achievements and incorporating mathematical teaching methods based on metacognition strategies and mathematics resilience into in-service programs for mathematics teachers, will be useful for decreasing students' mathematics anxiety in the outbreak of COVID-19.

This study aimed to investigate the effect of attribution retraining on academic procrastination and fear of failure of Semnan high school girl students with test anxiety. This study was applied in terms of purpose and semi-experimental based on the nature and method with pretest-posttest along with a control group. The statistical population included all high school girl students of the second semester of the Semnan high schools. From this population, the fifty people who had the highest score in the Friedman test anxiety questionnaire were selected and randomly assigned to one of the two experimental and control groups. The data collection tool consisted of two standard questionnaires including; fear of failure in Conroy's performance (2001), and Savari's academic procrastination (1392). The results of multivariate analysis of covariance (MANCOVA) showed that the mean of the experimental group in the components of fear of failure and total score of fear of failure and total score of procrastination was significantly lower (P <0.05) than the control group, but there was no significant difference between the two groups in the components of procrastination. The results showed that attribution retraining reduced the fear of failure and academic procrastination. This intervention contributes significantly to the mental health of students and prevents the wastage of social and economic costs of society.
