In contemporary unpredictably threatening environmental conditions, many students, like individuals of other walks of life who realise the potential danger of corona virus disease for their health and even life, are likely to experience higher than usual levels of emotional stress and consequent behavioural changes, like proneness to self-handicapping, escapism, giving preference to avoidance-type of coping strategies etc. This article presents the description and the expediency of using, for the monitoring of the emotional states of the students, a computer-assisted technique for assessing the mode of information processing preferred by the individual in the stressful conditions. The unified holistic-synthetic mode is found to be pertinent to emotionally stable individuals and consecutive analytical ones compared to the emotional vulnerable ones. The technique can be used for monitoring the emotional states of students and accounting for them in the process of teaching.
Keywords: Emotional stability, cognitive processes, strategy of informational processes, consecutive analytical, holistic-synthetic mode.
