The present research aims in standardizing a multidimensional anxiety scale in children among Iranian students. In this study, when the original transcript of MASC was translated into Persian, it retranslated then reviewed for correction and the final form provided for implementation. The participants in this study include 10-16 Year old students (353 girls, 347 boys) studying in Tonekabon. The multi-stage procedure was used to pick up sample (classified and clustered random). To investigate the convergent validity, the students answered the questionnaires in Revised children’s manifested anxiety scale (RCMAS). To control scale reliability, it was utilized Cronbach coefficient. To calculate scale validity, factor analysis was used as main components analysis. To prepare the norm table, there were utilized Z & T balanced scores. Cronbach coefficient also was recorded 0.91 for the total scale. Implementing exploratory factorial analysis through varimax rotation revealed a robust eight-factor structure. Correlation coefficient was significant between the total score in multidimensional anxiety scale in children and RCMAS. The children’s multidimensional anxiety scale showed an appropriate validity and internal homogeneity among Iranian students, therefore it can be used for further studies.
