Defensiveness Effects on Sex Differences in Children's Test Anxiety.
Eaton, Warren O.
Relationships among the Test Anxiety Scale for Children (TASC), the Lie Scale for Children (LSC), and sex were estimated from a pooled sample of 1,755 children in grades 1 to l0. Defensiveness and test anxiety showed equally strong sex differences; sex effects in test anxiety were not completely attributable to sex effects in defensiveness, but sex differences in defensiveness did magnify sex effects in test anxiety. Cross-lagged analysis of longitudinal data suggested that defensiveness had a causal impact on reporting of test anxiety, especially for boys. (Author/GDC)
