Primary use / Purpose: 

The Sport Emotion Questionnaire (SEQ) is a sport-specific measure of precompetitive emotion to assess anger, anxiety, dejection, excitement, and happiness. The SEQ has also been employed successfully to evaluate recalled emotions in a sport setting (Vast, Young, & Thomas,2010)

Background: 

Athletes experience multitudinous emotions in sport settings (Hanin, 2000; Lazarus, 2000). Increasingly, research efforts are concerned with the prevalence of emotions and relationships between emotions and performance rely on the availability of valid measures. The Sport Emotion Questionnaire (SEQ) represents a sport-specific tool of pre-competitive emotion comprising items grounded in the experience of athletes.

Psychometrics: 

Validation tests, including face, content, factorial, and concurrent validity has been conducted (see Jones et al., 2005).
