A confirmatory factor analysis was performed on responses from 436 (234 female, 202 male) primary school students to the La Greca et al. (1988) Social Anxiety Scale for Children (SASC). While loadings for one SASC item were ambiguous, results generally supported the original two-factor (Fear of Negative Evaluation and Social Anxiety and Distress) scale structure. Internal consistencies for the two subscales were also high. Recommendations for further refinement work on the scale are made.
