ABSTRACT

The factor structure and concurrent validity of the State‐ Trait Anxiety Inventory, Trait Version (STAI‐T) were examined in two college student samples in Korea. We demonstrated method effects due to the inclusion of reverse‐scored items. Confirmatory factor analyses supported the single factor model with method factor. This indicates that the Korean version of the STAI‐T (K‐STAI‐T) can be contaminated by method effects and response patterns are different between non‐reversed and reverse‐scored items. Thus, the relevance of reverse‐scored items in the K‐STAI‐T is questioned.
