Abstract:

Different studies have analyzed school anxiety as a unitary construct, without regard to the different situations and response systems that make up this construct. However, the present study considers the school anxiety as a multidimensional construct. Thus, the aim of this study was to analyze the relationships and predictive capacity among situations and responses of school anxiety on trait anxiety, state anxiety and depression. The School Anxiety Inventory (IAES), the State Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI and STAIC) and the Child Depression Inventory (CDI) were administered to a sample of 1,409 Spanish students of 12 to 18 years. The results show significant and positive correlations between situations and responses of school anxiety with trait anxiety, state anxiety and depression. In addition, situations and responses systems of school anxiety are significant and positive predictors of trait anxiety, state anxiety and depression. The practical implications of these findings are discussed.

Key words:

school anxiety, trait anxiety, state anxiety, depression, adolescence
