Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Optimal single-dose of CHI-907 to reduce test anxiety
    • Time Frame: The test session visit is 3.5 hours long.
    • Subjects will report their level of test anxiety using the State Test Anxiety Visual Analog Scale (STAI-VAS) pre-test, mid-test, and post-test. The STAI-VAS is a measure from 0 (not anxious at all) to 100 (anxious).
  • Minimal single-dose of CHI-907 to reduce test anxiety
    • Time Frame: The test session visit is 3.5 hours long.
    • Subjects will report their level of test anxiety using the State Test Anxiety Visual Analog Scale (STAI-VAS) pre-test, mid-test, and post-test. The STAI-VAS is a measure from 0 (not anxious at all) to 100 (anxious).
