The Revised Children's Manifest Anxiety Scale, Second Edition (RCMAS-2) measures the level and nature of anxiety, as experienced by children today, using a simple yes-or-no response format.
The RCMAS-2 consists of 49 items, covering five scales (Physiological Anxiety, Worry, Social Anxiety, Defensiveness and Inconsistent Responding Index).
The Second Edition adds a convenient Short Form that is comprised of the first 10 items and can be administered in just 5 minutes.
The RCMAS-2 Autoscore Form is used by the respondent to mark their answers. Instructions are presented on the front on how to complete the Autoscore Form.
Once respondents have completed the form, the examiner can remove the perforated strip to view the Scoring Worksheet, where all responses have been transferred to. The Scoring Worksheet assists in calculating scores, and an accompanying Profile Sheet (that corresponds to the respondent's age) allows for a graphic representation of results.
