Test Your Sleep

The Epworth Sleepiness Scale, created by Dr. Murray Johns, is an often used tool to determine the degree of daytime sleepiness. A result of up to 9 points indicates a normal condition. Anything above that score and you should seek medical counsel.  Fill in the form below and test yourself

How likely are you to doze off or fall asleep in the following situations, as opposed to just feeling tired?

Consider a normal day in the near present for the answers.

Even if you have not engaged in some of these activities recently, try to think how they would affect you.

Choose the number which best describes each situation:

0 = I would never doze off
1 = Small chance to doze off
2 = Chance of dozing off
3 = High chance to doze off

  • Sitting and reading
  • Watching TV
  • Sitting quietly in a public place (ex.: at the movies, theater or at a meeting)
  • As a passenger in a car for a one hour non-stop ride
  • Lying down in the afternoon to rest, when time allows
  • Sitting and talking to someone
  • Sitting quietly after lunch (no alcohol consumed)
  • In a car, stopped in traffic for a few minutes
