The present study compared mood assessments using two different response time frames. A sample of 136 school children completed the Brunel Mood Scale (BRUMS) daily for 5 days using the response time frame, 'How are you feeling right now?' On Day 5, participants completed an additional BRUMS, using the response time frame, 'How have you felt over the past week including today?'. 'Past week' mood assessments yielded higher scores than multiple 'right now' assessments, and were particularly associated with ambient mood for confusion, depression, and vigour. Researchers should give due consideration to the influence of response time frame on mood assessments.
