The Epworth Sleepiness Test is a self-administered questionnaire with 8 questions. It was created by Australian doctor Murray Johns in 1990 and named after the Epworth Sleep Center he established in 1988. Respondents were asked to rate their common chances of dozing off or falling asleep on a 4-point scale (0-3) while engaging in eight different activities. The total ESS score can range from 0 to 24. The higher the ESS score, the higher that person’s average sleep propensity in daily life (ASP), or their ‘daytime sleepiness’. If you’re interested in it, let’s begin!
(This test is not designed to replace a physician’s independent judgment about your daytime sleepiness. Always consult your doctor if necessary.)
