Children's Test Anxiety Scale (CTAS)

Stress and Anxiety
Children's Test Anxiety Scale (CTAS)

Given the increased testing of school-aged children, there is a need for a current and valid scale to measure the effects of test anxiety in children. Individuals are involved in three different processes to express test anxiety including their cognition (i.e., worry), behavior (i.e., task-relevant and task irrelevant actions), and physiology (i.e., emotional arousal). In association with these factors, this survey looks at test anxiety for primary school children in the context of their (1) thoughts; (2) Nervous system reactions; and (3) Off-task behaviours
