Purpose: To measure the level and nature of anxiety
Age: 18+ years of age
Time: 10-15 minutes

The Adult Manifest Anxiety Scale (AMAS) is a self-report inventory that measures the level and nature of anxiety in adults.

The scale is available in three forms:

1. AMAS-A for adults (ages 19 to 59)
2. AMAS-E for elderly individuals (60 and above)
3. AMAS-C for students enrolled in college.

The three forms were independently developed and normed, and each includes some unique items and/or subscales. The AMAS-A, for example, contains several items addressing work pressures, while the AMAS-E includes items focusing on fear of aging, and the AMAS-C adds a Test Anxiety scale. In addition, all versions include a Lie Scale to assess response validity.

Subscales for each version are listed below:

  • AMAS-A: Worry/Oversensitivity, Social Concerns/Stress, Physiological Anxiety     
  • AMAS-E: Worry/Oversensitivity, Physiological Anxiety, Fear of Aging
  • AMAS-C: Worry/Oversensitivity, Social Concerns/Stress, Physiological Anxiety, Test Anxiety

Because it has three age-specific forms, it permits a targeted assessment that takes into account many of the situations that predictably condition an individual’s moods and feelings. The test is useful in general clinical practice, college counselling centres, and geriatric settings.
