Perfectionism, Learning Environment, and Academic Emotions in Chinese Primary Students

This survey study aims to examine the relationships between perfectionism, learning environment (i.e. relational and academic support from teachers and peers), and test-related emotions (i.e. test hope and test anxiety) among Grades 4 to 6 students in Hong Kong. More specifically, we will investigate whether students’ perfectionist characteristics predict their test-related emotions; and whether students’ perceived learning environment mediates the prediction between perfectionism and test-related emotions. The findings would contribute to the small body of perfectionism research with primary school-age students, and shed lights on school guidance and counselling practices that aims to enhance students’ social and emotional well-being in the Chinese school context.
