Abstract

The "Test Anxiety Scale for Children" (TASC) and the "Lie Scale for Children" (LSC) were administered to 60 children, half of whom were defined by schools as learning disabled. An analysis of covariance indicated that learning disabled subjects were more anxious than their nondisabled counterparts, and that their test anxiety was significantly related to reading and mathematics achievement scores.
