    Similar to the Job Satisfaction Survey (JSS), the Job-Related Affective Well-Being Scale (JAWS) focuses solely on the work aspect of wellbeing, assessing the emotional reactions people feel towards their work. The scale includes 30 items, one for each emotion, asking participants to rate how often they have experienced that emotion on a 5-point Likert scale. There is a shortened 20-item version as well, which Spector, creator of this scale, uses more frequently in his research. Both versions have been translated into multiple languages.  It is free to use for educational and noncommercial purposes if the user shares the results and any new translations with Spector at pspector@usf.edu .
