State- Trait Anxiety: A study in Saudi Arabia

Auther : Ahmed Abdul-Khalek , Ahmad Hafez

This study aims to test the validity of ‘State-Trait: An Anxiety inventory’ by Spielberger et al. By applying it to samples in Saudi Arabia, and to define clearly its essential psychometric features. The inventory was applied in small group sessions to 196 university students, 122 male and 116 female high-school students and 82 teachers and headmasters. The reliability coefficient of the Anxiety State Inventory was 0.55, within the limits of previous studies in the U.S.A. and Egypt. The reliability coefficient of the Anxiety Trait was 0.59, which is somewhat low. The validity of the Anxiety Inventory was estimated to be satisfactory in two ways: by calculating and comparing the correlation coefficients of the Inventory for the four samples, and by comparing the Inventory with another anxiety scale. Means and standard deviations of the samples were calculated, and the results showed that teachers obtained the lowest means while female high school students obtained the highest. The results were also compared with studies in the U.S.A. and Egypt. The study concludes that the Inventory is a promising instrument and that it can be used in research in Saudi Arabia.
