ABSTRACT
The present study developed and provided initial validation statistics for the Farsi Mood Scale (FARMS), a shortened version of the Brunel Mood Scale (BRUMS) designed for use in an Iranian context. Following translation of the BRUMS into Farsi using the translation-back translation method, the FARMS was administered to 405 Iranian university students (136 males, 269 females; age: range?=?18�34 yr., M?=?21.1 yr., SD?=?2.2). Confirmatory factor analysis provided support for a 14-item, six-factor measurement model. Gender differences in mood responses were found, with males reporting higher vigour scores than females. Athletes reported higher vigour scores than non-athletes. The FARMS showed acceptable psychometric properties and may have several applications among Farsi-speaking populations. A preliminary table of normative data is provided.
