SAS-A assesses adolescents’ social anxiety experiences in the context of peer relations. It is a self-response scale consisting of 22 items, of which 4 are neutral (filler items) not counted in the total quote (2, 7, 11, and 16). Items are rating on a 5-point scale, with a total score ranging from a minimum of 18 to a maximum of 90. In addition to the Total Score, the scale allows obtaining three other results based on the factors that compose it, FNE, SAD-N, and SAD-G.
