Manifest Anxiety Scale

Manifest Anxiety Scale

A self-report inventory that measures the level and nature of anxiety in either children (RCMAS), for whom it was first developed, or adults (AMAS). The AMAS incorporates the critical elements of the RCMAS, while adding age-appropriate content and scales for three different stages of adult life.

Adult Manifest Anxiety Scale Forms
• AMAS—for adults.
• AMAS-C—for college students.
• AMAS-E—for elderly individuals.
