A Longitudinal Study of Worry and Emotionality.
Schwarzer, Ralf; And Others
In recent research the assessment of worry and emotionality as separate components of test anxiety has become a salient point. Because of theoretical advances in this field it seems to be necessary to include both aspects in the measures that are used to assess test anxiety. Some literature on this distinction is available, but no longitudinal study is known that investigates the structural stability of both aspects as well as time-specific effects. In this paper, the structural equations approach to the multitrait-multioccasion case is used to obtain more information on this point. In addition, the question of causal predominance arises: does worry influence emotionality during a certain time period, or vice versa? This question was explored by cross-lagged panel analysis.
