In brief: There are many...

There are many tests; some seem better than others.
But no one "test" is determinative. An experienced mental health expert may or may not even utilize a proprietary "test". Such an evaluation includes a thorough history &discussion with the expert, who then can employ 1 or more tests, or not, to provide additional info. In the end, the evaluator should use tests with which he/she has confidence.

There are No Specific Tests are for Anxiety. Thorough history of total journey of life with stressors, their effects; Physical Examination; and detailed Mental Status Examination can establish Diagnosis of Anxiety Disorder.
