Evaluation of a short form of the profile of mood states depression scale

, : Evaluation of a short form of the profile of mood states depression scale. Journal of Clinical Psychology 41(3): 389-391

This study evaluated Shacham's 8-item short form of the original 15-item POMS(Profile of Mood States)-Depression scale (N = 131). The study found that the short form: did not have significantly lower concurrent validity than the original form; had only slightly lower internal consistency; and had a mean and a standard deviation close enough to those of the original form to allow prorating of short-form scores for interpretation with original form norms. The short form is roughly equivalent psychometrically to the previously validated original form. The short form of the POMS-Depression scale was identified as apparently the shortest available validated measure of depression.
