Today, the Internet is at the forefront of the new industrial revolution and is now at the height of the peak of the digital industrial revolution. One of the most important issues in Internet addiction is that Internet addiction reduces anxiety about progress because of the psychological dependencies it creates, and it attracts the attention of the individual or adolescent. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of Internet addiction on students' academic achievement anxiety in the academic year 2018-2019. The statistical population of this study consists of 325 students of Azad University, North Branch of Tehran. 122 students were selected as the statistical sample. The statistical sample of this study was determined by "random" sampling method. The information required for the study was collected through two questionnaires. The research method was developed by Alpert and Haber (1960s) Achievement Anxiety Test to assess academic achievement anxiety. The standard Yang Internet Addiction Questionnaire (1996) was also conducted. This study showed that there was no significant relationship between boys and girls between addiction to students' Internet and academic achievement. The results of this study are consistent with the findings of most studies that have shown that addiction to the Internet is associated with academic achievement.
