Statistics can develop student’s critical thinking, logical, and necessary in completing their final project, but some student’s teachers do not notice and have learning anxiety which affects their learning outcomes achievement. Learning anxiety is caused by variety of factors and needs to be reduced to achieve maximum learning outcomes. The purpose of this study is to explore the relationship between statistical learning anxiety and statistical learning outcomes and to describe what factors that make students anxious in learning statistics. This study used quantitative approach that explore the relationship between statistical learning anxiety and statistical learning outcomes using the non-parametric test by Spearman Rank correlation test. Data was collected through tests, questionnaires, interviews, and student reflections. Test and anxiety questionnaires results analyzed quantitatively, while interviews and reflections analyzed qualitatively. Tests are arranged based on statistical learning objectives, questionnaires are arranged based on learning anxiety indicators. The subjects of this study were 70 students of the primary student’s teacher. The results showed that there was relationship between statistical learning anxiety and statistics learning outcomes in primary students teachers. High statistical learning anxiety has an impact on low student learning outcomes and vice versa. Based on interviews and reflection data, some of the factors that influence student anxiety include information from seniors who say statistics subject so difficult, mathematics prior knowledge students still relatively low, and their fear of the risk of failing in statistics subject.
