Abbreviated Version of the Mathematics Anxiety Rating Scale (A-MARS)

This is an abbreviated (25-item version) of the original Mathematics Anxiety Rating Scale (MARS) instrument developed by Richardson and Suinn (for reference- see comments).The purpose of the study was to develop abbreviated version of MARS, and to find whether certain specific backgrounds (gender, socio-economic status) and academic variables can predict math anxiety.

Average Review: 3 (3.7)

I liked that there weren't so many questions as that tends to discourage people from answering every single question honestly and thus affects the outcome of the survey. I personally, however, would like to know if anxiety is strictly math related or just school related and how their self-esteem factors into it.
