Starting from a three-dimensional conception of mood (pleasantness, activation, and calmness) it was assumed that activation and/or calmness should reflect strength and centrality of desires present, while pleasantness should reflect expected good achievement. These assumptions were tested in a study where a mood questionnaire and rating scale concerning task aspects were administered to students before and after an undergraduate exam. It was found that expected goal achievement correlated with calmness. The subjects who did not accord to this postulation pattern gave indications in their date and in their verbal comments that the task studied was of less importance for them, a finding also in accordance with the present approach to mood.
