In this study, a paired comparison method, rarely encountered in the literature, was used in order to reveal the reasons for mathematical anxiety of secondary school students. Looking at the coherence among the stimuli created in order to reveal this, we attempted to obtain information about whether the items of the scale harmonized with each other. In the analysis of the data, the scale values were obtained first using case V and then case III. It was found that the item ranges for case III were more consistent compared with those of case V. In conclusion, it can be said that the stimuli identified are differential. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd. This is an open access article under the CC BY-NC-ND license.
