DOMINGUEZ-LARA, Sergio. Test anxiety inventory-State: Preliminary analysis of validity and reliability in psychology college . liber. [online]. 2016, vol.22, n.2, pp.219-228. ISSN 1729-4827.

The objective of the present study was to examine the internal structure of the Test anxiety inventory-State (TAI-State) in Spanish version. A sample of 125 college students from Lima (84.8% female) between 18 and 31 years old (M = 22.51) was evaluated. The internal structure of the STAI was analyzed by a confirmatory factor analysis, evaluating three models: oblique, bifactor and unidimensional. The results indicate that a single dimension constitutes the STAI and there are coefficients of reliability with high magnitudes. In conclusion, the version studied shows favorable psychometric properties that support its use in Lima.
