O knihe

This book covers the current mathematics anxiety literature and focuses on the definitions, nature, causes, measurement, effects, and treatments of the construct of mathematics anxiety. A particular attention is paid to the measurement of mathematics anxiety. Psychometric properties of the RMARS were investigated through a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and was found to be inadequate according to several fit indices. After several modifications, a second CFA of the modified instrument showed adequate properties. Concurrent validity of the instrument was found from significant relationships between the instrument and students' self-perceptions of their general and current mathematics anxiety levels. Reliability coefficients indicated the consistency of the scale's items. We suggest that the instrument may be used by mathematics instructors as a screening tool to detect high-risk students; by college counselors as a placement tool to ameliorate specific areas of the problem; or by researchers as a research tool to study the relationships between mathematics anxiety and other important factors.
