In addition, construct validity and reliability of the scale were confirmed by confirmatory factor analysis and Cronbach's alpha. The result of t test and one-way analysis of variance revealed significant differences between attributes. In this study the validity and reliability of the teacher's stressor scale for junior high school-based extracurricular sports activities were confirmed. The results of comparisons among attributes suggested that different teachers' attributes were also different from the cognition of stressors.
