description:
The Affect Adjective Check List (AACL) contains 21 words which proved to be significantly related to anxiety in both of two previous studies. The first 11 words ('afraid' to 'worrying') are called the anxiety-plus words and the last 10 words ('calm' to 'thoughtful') the anxiety-minus words. Anxiety-plus words are scored 1 if checked, and anxiety-minus words are scored 1 if not checked. The total score therefore ranges between 0 and 21, showing low and high anxiety respectively. Zuckerma n developed this test to be given quickly, scored objectively and adapted for varying time sets. Results suggest that the General version of the AACL is a quick measure of general anxiety level, while that the Today version is good for assessing anxiety repeating within a limited time interval. For details about these versions and other aspects of the test, see the reference below. Scoring information: Retain original scoring on all individual items. Score as follows for the creation of a summary measure, ANXTOT. For ANX1-ANX11, score 1 if orig score=1, score 0 if orig score=2. For ANX12-ANX21, score 0 if orig score=1, score 1 if orig score=2. Sum over all 21 recoded items to create ANXTOT.
