Gerta Bardhoshi* and Bradley T Erford

This brief review summarized the psychometric properties of the Michigan Alcohol Screening Test short (S-MAST) and brief (bMAST) versions based on a recently-published psychometric synthesis. Reported samples were aggregated and synthesized across a total of 40 and 21 studies, respectively. Brief results for reliability, validity, and nonclinical descriptive statistics are reported, along with interpretations that may inform alcohol use disorder screening.
