This experiment investigated the effect of motivation on sinus arrhythmia, heart beat and information processing rate. The two way analyses of variance which were performed showed that motivation affected sinus arrhythmia and information processing rate and did not affect heart beat. A system was developed to classify the general patterns that resulted in the measure of sinus arrhythmia as information processing levels increased. This classification system may have eventual use in predicting a student's academic achievement.
