MAAS - Mindful Attention Awareness Scale
15 questions

This questionnaire measures the awareness we put into carrying out daily actions and activities. Initially proposed by Brown and Ryan* in 2003, it is the most widely used tool to measure the effects of mindfulness on the awareness of those who practice it. (In Italy it has been validated by Venetians and Voices). Awareness is a fundamental skill for an effective studying and therefore it is important to develop it and above all evaluate it!

Here are some statements that relate to your daily experience.
 
Instructions: Using the 1-6 scale below, please indicate how frequently or infrequently you currently have each
experience. Please answer according to what really reflects your experience rather than what you think your experience should be. Please treat each item separately from every other item.

To score the scale, simply compute a mean (average) of the 15 items. Higher scores reflect higher levels of awareness.
