Abstract

Internal consistency, temporal stability, and principal components structures of two self-report anger expression scales used in pediatric health research were examined in 415 youth (216 White, 199 Black; 191 boys, 224 girls; mean age 14.7 years). Participants completed the Anger Expression Scale (AXS) and the Pediatric Anger Expression Scale (PAES) on two occasions separated by approximately 1 year. Psychometric properties of the two scales were examined and compared with those reported by the scale authors. For both the AXS and the PAES, estimates of internal consistency (Cronbach's alpha) were acceptable and comparable to values reported by scale authors. Temporal stability of both scales was significant over 1 year. Principal components structures for both scales were similar to those reported by scale authors. Results were generally consistent for age groupings (<13, ≥13 years), ethnicity, and gender. It is concluded that further research using the AXS and PAES is warranted. The stability of anger expression over time and the assessment of anger suppression is discussed.
