80 children in Grades 5 and 6 were administered the General and Test Anxiety Scales for Children, and the Defensiveness Scale for Children. Although girls scored higher than boys on the anxiety measures, there were no differences on the Defensiveness Scale, suggesting that the content of the scales, rather than defensiveness, merits further investigation. There were no differences between Black and White children on any of the measures. (2 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
