Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI)

Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) is a 21-item self-report assessment developed by Aaron T. Beck and his colleagues in 1988. A revised manual of the inventory was published in 1993 due to certain scoring modifications.

BAI consists of 21 multiple choice questions with a Likert scale value of 0 (not at all) to 3(severely) and raw scores ranging from 0 to 63. The scores are then classified as follows:

* minimal anxiety (0 to7) * mild anxiety (8 to 15) * moderate anxiety (16 to 25) * severe anxiety (30 to 63)

It only takes 5-10 minutes to complete the BAI and it has been found to be an accurate tool in measuring the level of anxiety of adolescents and adults aged 17 to 80.
