The sample size of 783 students was selected by multistage sampling. Research instrument was catastrophic cognition questionnaire that was applied to the sample along with Academic Expectations Stress (AES) and Self-Efficacy questionnaires.
Results: Confirmatory factor analysis of the scale of the three-factor model supports (df/S–Bχ2=4.52, RMSEA=0.067, GFI=0.97, CFI= 0.97). Divergent and convergent validity through the Pearson correlation coefficient, cognition catastrophic scale with the (GSE) and (AES) questionnaires were satisfactory. The results of Cornbrash’s alpha coefficient and retest coefficients were 0.84 and 0.83 respectively.
