The aim of this study is to examine the effect of the coloring mandalas on reducing test anxiety of university students. To determine participants among university student, the Spielberger test anxiety inventory was applied. According to the results of the inventory, the participants were randomly assigned to the test group and the control group. While control group listened to calming music, the test group colored different types of pre-shaped mandalas. To determine the effect of coloring mandalas on reducing anxiety, the Spielberger test anxiety inventory (TAI) was reapplied at the end of the 5th week. The mean score of the TAI significantly decreased between the pre-test and the pro-test in the both groups (the test group and the control group). Suprisingly the mean score of the TAI of the control group was significantly lower than the test group. The findings show that coloring mandalas can significantly reduce the level of anxiety, however it is less effective than listening music.

Bu araştırmada üniversite öğrencilerinin sınav kaygısını azaltmada mandala boyamanın etkisi araştırılmak istenmiştir. Kaygı düzeyi yüksek öğrencileri belirlemek amacıyla Spielberger Sınav Kaygısı Envanteri kullanılmıştır. Spielberger Sınav Kaygısı Envanteri sonuçları dikkate alınarak kaygı düzeyi en yüksek 20 öğrenci deney ve kontrol grubuna seçilmişlerdir. Beş hafta boyunca, haftada bir saat deney grubu mandala boyarken kontrol grubu sadece rahatlatıcı müzik dinlemiştir. Beş haftanın sonunda kaygı düzeylerindeki değişimi ölçmek için Spielberger Sınav Kaygısı Envanteri tekrar uygulanmıştır. Araştırmanın sonunda hem müzik dinlemenin hem de mandala boyamanın kaygı düzeyini azaltmada etkili olduğu bulunmuştur. Ancak beklenilenin aksine kaygıyı azaltmada müzik dinlemenin mandala boyamaya göre etkisinin daha fazla olduğu bulunmuştur.
