Abstract

SEES is an instrument used to examine the affective state of exercise associated with mood. This study was aimed to determine the psychometric properties of Malay version. The original scale underwent forward and backward translation, cognitive debriefing and field testing. The psychometric properties were evaluated based on reliability and construct validity among 152 smokers. The translated SEES had shown satisfied reliability with Cronbach alpha of 0.80, 0.73 and 0.73 and a significant positive correlation with Profile of Mood Scale (POMS). The current study provides psychometric evidence for an appropriate, reliable and valid tool for SEES Malay version.
