The Negative Alcohol Expectancy Questionnaire (NAE) is a 60 item measure used to measure negative alcohol expectancies in subjects as representing the motivation to inhibit drinking.
The NAE consists of 60 items that are rated on a 5-point Likert scale as follows:
|Highly Unlikely||Unlikely||Possible||Likely||Highly Likely|
The NAE yields 3 primary scales and one total. 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.
