Construction and Standardization of Research Anxiety Scale for Research Scholars
The research anxiety scale has been developed and standardized by the investigator for PhD. Research scholars. The initially draft of the tool consisted of 74 items, later after discussions with the experts and administration of the tool on the research scholars, 32 items were retained. After thorough item analysis the final draft of the test retained 28 items. The reliability was found to 0.62 which was calculated by test re-test method. Validity was established by concurrent validity method for which the present scale was correlated with Research anxiety rating scale by Onwuegbuzie (2011). The validity index comes out to be 0.56.
