Evaluation Apprehension by Cheri Hiatt

Evaluation Apprehension is when the knowledge of others judging you affects your performance.

Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1zY38p0Lpw

Conclusion: As can be seen, the child in this video agreed to singing happy birthday, something he is likely to have done several times. However, as soon as the cameras started rolling and he knew others would be seeing what he was doing, he was clearly effected by the prospective judgement of those watching, completely froze up and was unable to carry out the task, thus illustrating evaluating apprehension.
