The FABQ (21) is subdivided into 2 subscales, a 5-item physical activity subscale (questions 1 to 5) and a 16-item work subscale (questions 6 to 16). Decision making using the rule requires only the FABQ work subscale score. However, all items on the questionnaire should be completed since they were included when the psychometric properties of the instrument were established. Each item is scored from 0 to 6; however, not all items within each subscale contribute to the score. Four items (items 2, 3, 4, and 5) are scored for the FABQ physical activity subscale, and 7 items (items 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 15) are scored for the FABQ work subscale. Each scored item within a particular subscale is summed; thus, possible scores range from 0 to 42 and 0 to 28 for the FABQ work and FABQ physical activity subscales, respectively. Higher scores represent increased fear–avoidance beliefs.
