Scale name: Mathematics Self-Efficacy and Anxiety Questionnaire (MSEAQ)
Scale overview: The Mathematics Self-Efficacy and Anxiety Questionnaire (MSEAQ) is a 29-item self-report measure of both mathematics self-efficacy and mathematics anxiety.
Author: Diana Kathleen May
Response Type: Items are rated on a 5-point Likert-type scale following a “no response” option:
1 = Never
2 = Seldom
3 = Sometimes
4 = Often
5 = usually
1. I feel confident enough to ask questions in my mathematics class.
6. I worry that I will not be able to get a good grade in my mathematics course.
Subscales and basic statistics for the MSEAQ
Self-Efficacy M = 44.11, SD = 10.78, alpha = .93
Anxiety M = 46.47, SD = 12.61, alpha = .93
Total Scale M = 90.58, SD = 22.78, alpha = .96
Reliability: See the Cronbach’s alpha levels reported above.
Validity: There were significant positive correlations with similar measures. The results of a Factor Analysis are included in the dissertation.
Availability: The scale is in Appendix B of May’s dissertation at the University of Georgia.
Permissions- Generally users should contact the author unless permission to use a measure has been stated. Many authors permit free use of measures for the purposes of research and education.
