Assessment of Self-Reported Anger Expression in Pre- and Early-Adolescent African Americans: Psychometric Considerations
Armstead, Cheryl A.; Clark, Rodney
Journal of Adolescence, v25 n4 p365-371 Aug 2002
This study examined the psychometric properties of the Speilberger state-trait anger expression inventory (STAXI) and Framingham (FAS) anger scales in 86 African American youth. Significant gender differences were not observed for the STAXI or FAS subscales scores (all p greater than 0.17). Inter-scale correlations revealed that the anger-in and anger-out subscales of the STAXI and FAS were measuring similar, yet different constructs. For the STAXI, intra-scale correlations indicated that the anger-in and anger-out subscales were not independent (p less than 0.001), whereas the anger-in and anger-out subscales (FAS) were not statistically related (p greater than 0.05). The component structures for the anger-control subscale (STAXI) and the anger subscales (FAS) were similar to those reported by the scale authors.
