INTERNAL CONSISTENCY OF THE KUWAIT UNIVERSITY ANXIETY SCALE IN TEN ARAB COUNTRIES
Abstract:The Kuwait University Anxiety Scale (KUAS) was administered to a select sample of undergraduate students from ten Arab countries, namely, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Syria, UAE, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Jordan, and Iraq (n = 296, 340, 300, 203, 280, 290, 303, 285, 253 and 254 respectively). The coefficient alpha was computed for male and female respondents from the participating countries, and the combined values for males and females determined. The study showed that the scale, by and large, was viable in the Arabic context, and its use in cross-cultural research, though feasible, merits further exploration.
