Test Anxiety Inventory

 

Authors: Charles D. Spielberger & Associates

The Test Anxiety Inventory (TAI), a self-report psychometric scale, was developed to measure individual differences in test anxiety as a situation-specific trait. Based on a Likert Scale, the respondents are asked to report how frequently they experience specific symptoms of anxiety before, during and after examinations. In addition to measuring individual differences in anxiety proneness in test situations, the TAI subscales assess worry and emotionality as major components of test anxiety.
