Factor Structure of the Mathematics Anxiety Rating Scale.
Rounds, James B., Jr.; Hendel, Darwin D.
Subjects for this study were female participants in a mathematics anxiety treatment program at a midwestern university. A series of test instruments were administered. Statistical analysis indicates that for this female sample, the domain of mathematics anxiety is best described as primarily test anxiety and only secondarily as anxiety associated with mathematics course activities. The discussion section lists six assertions related to mathematics anxiety suggested by this and other research. (MK)
