Apstrakt

Cilj ovog istraživanja usmeren je na ispitivanje psihometrijskih svojstava Skraćene skale matematičke anksioznosti (AMAS) kod učenika srednjih škola. AMAS operacionalizuje matematičku an- skioznost, po modelu konteksta, kao dvodimenzionalni fenomen, koji se sastoji od anksioznosti tokom učenja (MAL) i anksioznosti tokom evaluacije znanja (MAE). MAL predstavlja tendenciju is- poljavanja matematičke anksioznosti prilikom učenja matematike, dok MAE predstavlja tendenciju njenog ispoljavanja u svim situ- acijama koje uključuju formalnu evaluaciju znanja iz matematike. Uzorak je činilo 514 učenika srednjih škola (45.3% mladića), uzra- sta od 15 do 19 godina. Konfirmatorna faktorska analiza ukazuje na to da je AMAS jednodimenzionalna skala sa dve facete, kao i na to da bifaktorsko rešenje poseduje najbolje pokazatelje pode- snosti modela. Psihometrijska svojstva AMAS skale ispitana su korišćenjem Teorije ajtemskog odgovora (Item Response Theory

– IRT). IRT analiza ukazuje na adekvatne psihometrijske karak- teristike ajtema i skale u celini. AMAS skala je takođe ostvarila očekivane relacije sa matematičkim postignućem, motivacijom za učenje matematike, uzrastom i polom ispitanika.
