The Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) is a 21-item scale that measures the severity of anxiety in adults and adolescents. The BAI was constructed to measure symptoms of anxiety which are minimally shared with those of depression.
Each item of the BAI is rated on a 4-point scale of distress (0-3), in terms of severity. The scale follows the following correspondence:
• “Not at all” (0)
• “Mildly; it did not bother me much” (1)
• “Moderately; it was very unpleasant but I could stand it” (2)
• “Severely; I could barely stand it” (3).
The instrument can classify four different levels of anxiety
• Minimal anxiety
• Mild anxiety
• Moderate anxiety
• Severe anxiety
The BAI has been rated to be a sufficient reliable, sensitive, and valid questionnaire. Note that because the BAI was developed with adult psychiatric outpatients, it should be used cautiously with other clinical populations.
