The purpose of this study is to understand graduate students’ views of their statistical courses and related anxiety. This study sought to further understand the perceived value of statistics and related anxiety with assessing for social desirability. Overall results reveal that students’ anxiety lowers during the course. Students also viewed statistics as more useful at the end of the course when compared to the beginning.
