In this study, it was aimed to determine the predictive power of students’ perceptions of classroom assessment
environment for their mathematics anxiety. A correlational model was employed in this study, which was carried out
with 410 high school students in the provinces of Diyarbakir in Turkey in the fall of 2014–2015. The Mathematics
Anxiety Scale which was developed by Bindak (2005) was employed in the study to measure the students’ math
anxiety. Then, in order to determine the students’ perceptions of the classroom assessment environment, the
Classroom Assessment Environment Scale, which was developed by Ilhan and Cetin (2014a), was used. The
relationships between students’ mathematics anxiety and their perceptions of the classroom assessment environment
were investigated via correlation and multiple regression analysis. The results obtained from the correlation analysis
demonstrated that learning oriented assessment environment was negatively related to mathematics anxiety. In
contrary, performance oriented assessment environment was positively related to mathematics anxiety. As a result of
regression analysis, it was determined that students’ perceptions of the classroom assessment environment explain
18% of the total variance on their mathematics anxiety.
