The Educational Psychology Service, with agreement from Stirling Council and partly supported by a grant from the Scottish Government, has developed and standardized a new scale measuring both subjective and psychological aspects of wellbeing. The 12-items in this scale are rated on a Likert scale containing 5 levels with 12 being the minimum score and 60 being the maximum score. The scale covered areas of wellbeing including: optimism, cheerfulness and relaxation; satisfying Interpersonal relationships; clear thinking and competence. Overall this formed a single dimensioned scale with two sub-components described as Positive Outlook and Positive Emotional State.
Optimism, Cheerfulness, Relaxation, Satisfying Interpersonal Relationships, Clear Thinking, Competence
