Abbreviated POMS (Revised Version)
*** SCORING KEY ***
Scores for the seven subscales in the abbreviated POMS are calculated by summing the
numerical ratings for items that contribute to each subscale. The correspondence between items
and subscales is shown below.

TEN = Tension Note that 2 of the items on the Esteem-related
Affect (ERA) subscale are reverse-scored prior
to being combined with the other items.
Total Mood Disturbance (TMD) is calculated
by summing the totals for the negative
subscales and then subtracting the totals for the
positive subscales:
TMD = [TEN+DEP+ANG+FAT+CON] –
[VIG+ERA].
A constant (e.g., 100) can be added to the TMD
formula in order to eliminate negative scores.
ANG = Anger
FAT = Fatigue
DEP = Depression
ERA = Esteem-related Affect
VIG = Vigour
CON = Confusion

    While Fully Automated Vehicles (FAVs) have the potential to significantly expand older adults' access to mobility, limited research has focused on older adults' perceptions of such technology. The current driving simulation-based study will investigate factors that may govern older adults' perceptions of FAVs with respect to trust, acceptability, and safety. Participants (65+) will experience scenarios of manual and fully automated driving in a high-fidelity driving simulator. Their perceptions of the FAV will be measured before and after the driving experiences using questionnaires. Physiological and behavioral data will also be collected throughout the driving sessions to investigate whether positive or negative perceptions of technology are associated with behavioral or physiological responses. In addition, driving performance and driving styles of participants will be captured during manual driving to investigate whether an alignment between an individual's driving style and the FAV driving style will lead to a more positive perception towards FAVs.

Hi Robert,
thank you so much for making this questionnaire open to public - very useful! I created a computerised version of this questionnaire using OpenSesame (http://osdoc.cogsci.nl/3.2/) and used it in my nicotine and multiple-object tracking experiment. I am wondering if it would be fine if I published this computer version on OSF. My objective is just so that more people can use this form without having to print it out on paper. I will also provide the source/citation information. Will you allow me to do this?
Thanks,
intan

Thank you for sharing. This was perfect for helping my class have a discussion about operational definitions of mood vs. grief.
