Abstract :

An interaction hypothesis is tested to verify whether a combination of high anxiety and low working memory capacity (WMC) would predict variance in demanding cognitive test scores. It is then suggested that WMC moderates the relationship between anxiety and cognitive test performance. WMC may also explain some discrepancies found in research.
