Abstract:

Administrators, in general, are at greater risk of facing anxiety than are other people, due to their duties and responsibilities. In this study, both state and trait anxiety levels of college administrators were assessed and the administrators were compared based on their anxiety levels. For the purpose of assessing state and trait anxiety levels, the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) (Spielberger, Gorsuch, & Lushene, 1970) adapted to Turkish by LeCompte and Oner (1975) was used. The sample of the study included 72 college administrators who were working in Turkish state and private universities in different regions of the country. Results showed significant correlation between the state and trait anxiety levels. No significant difference was found based on gender, age, administrative level, or tenure. However, the direction of the differences was similar to those of the previous studies. Results are discussed and suggestions are given.
