Measuring Math Anxiety of Elementary Teachers
           Jim Gleason, The University of Alabama
ABSTRACT  
The Mathematics Anxiety Rating Scale is used frequently in research involving 
pre-service elementary teachers’ mathematics anxiety. This causes a problem since 
this instrument has not been analyzed using this data. In this study, we explore 
the various factors of the instrument and its reliability for the pre-service 
teacher population using methods of exploratory factor analysis and the graded 
model of item response theory.
