ABSTRACT: The Children’s Anxiety Scale (CAS) was examined for bias in internal consistency reliability and item content for Anglo-American and Mexican-American kindergarten students (total N=78). Reliability estimates were highly similar across ethnic and gender groupings. Anethnicityxgenderxitems ANOVA was nonsignificant, indicating the absence of systematically biased items in the CAS for the sample in this study.
