Abstract
Numerous studies have shown the effects of how stress impacts memory, especially in clinical setting. However, less is known about how minor changes in stress can influence learning and memory. The current study looked at how self-report measures of stress can influence learning behavior. The current study used 55 participants from the General Psychology class at Carroll College. There was no significant difference between the total number of correct responses on factual questions between low stress and moderate to high stress. There was also no significant difference between the total number of correct responses on conceptual questions between low stress and moderate to high stress. The following study failed to show that mild stress effects conceptual or factual memory retention.
