What Does My Score Mean?
Totally freaked? Highly anxious? Moderately anxious?
Numbers into categories:
low test anxiety
high (some items rated 4=high)
We have found that students who score at least 3.0 or more on the scale (at least moderately high anxiety) tend to benefit significantly from the confidence training program, reporting lower anxiety and higher test scores.Go to HOME page
Westside Scale Rationale and Validation
The scale is constructed to measure anxiety impairments, with most items asking directly about performance impairment or about worrying, which interferes with concentration. Symptoms of physiological stress are found to be relatively weak indicators of performance impairments, and are not included in the scale.
The Westside Scale is found to be an highly accurate measure of anxiety impairment. A Google search returns 8 thousand citations.
