The STAIC consists of two 20-item scales that measure state and trait anxiety in children between the ages of 8 and 14. The A-State scale examines the shorter-term state anxiety that is commonly specific to situations. It prompts the child to rate 20 statements from hardly ever true to often true. The A-Trait scale measures longer-term trait anxiety, which addresses how the child generally feels. A separate score is produced for the State scale and the Trait scale to determine which type of anxiety is dominant and which type of treatment is the most appropriate.
