Not scientific and very subjective (but anything will be) but this is something very simple I did in practicum with a client. Have the client keep a daily journal, and evaluate her mood for each day. On a scale of 1-5 (or you can do 1-10) assign a level of mood for each number, ranging from "I hate life" to "I love everybody on the planet," do them on a spread sheet. The client should then transfer the ratings from the daily entries on the spreadsheet, and you should have an easy-to-read graph of what the client perceives her mood to be. Perhaps there are tests out there, but this, like the Beck Depression inventory, is simple and easy, not to mention cheap.
