The Alcohol Expectancy Inventory (AEI) is a questionnaire to asses how an individual expects to feel when intoxicated.
The AEI consists of 24 items that are rated on a 7-point Likert scale as follows:
|Never||Very rarely||Rarely||Occasionally||Frequently||Very frequently||Always|
The AEI yields 4 primary scales. Description of the scales and item loadings are listed below. Scale scores are calculated as the sum of respective items. No items are reverse scored.
- Scoring has not been confirmed, resources hard to find. This is what we have been using in the past.
|SCALE NAME (ABBR.)||DESCRIPTION||ITEM LOADINGS|
|Positive (AEI POS)||8, 11, 13, 15, 16, 18, 22, 24|
|Negative (AEI NEG)||2, 5, 6, 7, 10, 12, 14, 17, 19|
|Aroused (AEI ARO)||1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 13, 16|
|Sedate (AEI SED)||8, 9, 14, 15, 17, 19, 20, 23, 24|
