|Application||The Flow Short Scale (FSS) has been developed to measure flow in its different components in everyday life. The FSS is a very economical instrument for this purpose, so the acitivity in question is only marginally interrupted.|
|Composition||The 13 Items of the FSS are divided among the scales flow and anxiety. The items are answered on 7-point Likert scales.|
|Reliability & Validity||The psychometric properties of the FSS have been found to be very good. The core of the FSS, the 10 items which measure flow, demonstrated an internal consistency around .90 (Cronbach’s Alpha). The anxiety scale demonstrated a bit lower, but still very good result.|
