The State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) was developed by Spielberger, Gorsuch, and Lushene (1970). STAI consists of two forms, one for state anxiety and the other for trait anxiety. Each form includes 20 items that are rated on a 4-point scale from 1 “never” to 4 “always”. In each form a separate score is formed. A higher total score in this inventory indicates higher anxiety. Turkish adaptation of this inventory was done by Öner and LeCompte (1983).
Kuder Richardson alpha coefficients for Trait Anxiety Scale were found between .83 and .87. Item remainder correlations for STAI-T ranges between .34 and .72 and test-retest reliability coefficients were found to be as .26 to.68. Various researchers supported the construct or criterion validity of the Turkish STAI such as Rüstemli (1975), Zülemyan (1979) and Kozacıoğlu (1982) (All cited in Öner & LeCompte, 1983).
