Development of the Minimood and Some Evidence of Its Validity and Stability.
Lynch, Mervin D.; And Others
The "Minimood" is the synonym chosen from the adult mood adjective checklist (MACL) to measure moods of elementary children. Ratings were obtained on mood and Children's Manifest Anxiety Scales (CMAS) for a 50-subject pilot and a 206-subject developmental sample in grades 1, 3, and 5. Twelve mood factors were identified: Aggression, Fatigue, Social Affection, Anxiety, Elation-egotism, Clowning, and Concentration. Nine correspond to adult MACL factors, and seven were stable across characteristics. The CMAS loaded with two factors on the pilot but was unique on the developmental sample, suggesting that the Minimood measures state, not trait anxiety. (Author)
