The Test Anxiety Scale: A Factor Analysis.
Rapaport, Ross J.
This study examined the psychometric pro-properties of the Test Anxiety Scale (TAS). Exploring the factor structure of the TAS was a major focus. Two hundred introductory psychology students completed the TAS. Both orthogonal (varimax) and oblique (direct quartimon) rotations were used to rotate obtained two- and three-factor solutions. The final three factors, derived from an oblique rotation, were Emotionality, Cognitive Interference and Negative Test Taking Attitude. (Author)
