About Children’s State-Trait Anxiety Scale
Children’s State-Trait Anxiety Scale was developed by Spielberger (1973). It assesses the state and trait anxiety of children. In this study trait anxiety test was used which is a 20 item inventory. This inventory was adapted into Turkish by Özusta (1993, 1995). This is a self-report inventory. It is scored from 1 to 3. Higher scores indicate a higher anxiety level. The test-retest reliability study was conducted with 42 females and 57 males Özusta (1993).
The alpha coefficient was found to be .65 for the whole group, .48 for females and .74 for males. The Cronbach alpha for the Trait Anxiety Inventory was found as .81. The criterion validity was conducted with a total of 420 students and it was found that the scale was significantly able to differentiate those groups diagnosed with an anxiety disorder from groups with other psychiatric disorders and the norm group
