The Global Measure of Equity Scale

According to Equity theory, people perceive a relationship as equitable when they and their partners are getting what they both “deserve” from their romantic and marital relationships. In theory, couples feel most comfortable when their romantic and sexual relationships are maximally profitable, and (considering what they and their partners contribute to their relationship) they are reaping all the rewards they deserve—no more and certainly no less (See Hatfield, Walster, & Berscheid, 1978). Equity has been found to relate to many aspects of relationships and appears to be important...

Risks and Consequences Questionnaire (RCQ)

The Risks and Consequences Questionnaire (RCQ is an index of problems that can be consequent of alcohol and marijuana use in adolescent delinquents. The RCQ has been validated with a racially and ethnically diverse sample of youths (Stein et al., 2010). The RCQ may complement structured interviews for collecting information about the psychological repercussions associated with alcohol and marijuana use. This measure may help researchers and clinicians in making substance abuse diagnoses for incarcerated juvenile delinquents, and may well be used also as an intervention outcome measure

Fruit, Juice and Vegetable Availability Questionnaire (FJV-Q)

There is a paucity of empirical evidence regarding whether parents can precisely remember and report the foods in their kitchen. Marsh, Cullen, and Baranowski (2003) conducted interviews in the residences of parents with 4th to 6th grade children. Parents were questioned about whether certain fruit, juices, and fruits were present in their homes in the past week. The parents were next asked whether the study investigator could go into the kitchen and observe whether the foods were present at that time using a shelf inventory. The results demonstrated that there was good agreement between...

The Functional Behavior Profile (FBP)

The Functional Behavior Profile (FBP) comprises 27 items concerning performance of daily activities by the cognitively impaired individual. The items are sectioned into three areas: Task Performance, Problem Solving, and Social Interaction. Each item is rated from 0 (never) to 4 (always) according to the subject’s behavior over the past 7 days. The checklist may be completed by the therapist by interviewing the primary caregiver or by the caregiver independently. Administration of the test takes, on average, 15 minutes. The FBP yields three scores for the factors of Task Performance,...

Participation Survey of Mobility Limited people (PARTS/M)

Items on the Participation Survey of Mobility Limited people (PARTS/M) were designed using interviews with 15 experts of mobility impairments. These interviews were complemented the input of 15 focus groups. The PARTS/M has been tested with mobility-impaired individuals across diagnoses, including; stroke, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and spinal chord injury. PARTS/M may be a useful measure of some components of participation in major life activities for people with mobility limitations in the community setting.

Sexual Experiences Survey - Long Form Victimization (SES-LFV)

Mary P. Koss and the Sexual Experiences Survey (SES) Collaboration have designed an instrument capable of reflecting hidden cases of rape and of measuring aggressive or coercive sexual acts and victimization on a dimensional scale. The SES surveys examines degrees of coercion used or experienced in sexual activity. All versions of the revised SES measure behavior that meets legal definitions of various sex crimes, with the exception of acts accomplished by verbal coercion not involving threats of physical harm. The acts accomplished by coercion are certainly on the sexual assault spectrum...

Metereopathy Questionnaire (METEO-Q)

The term meteoropathy derives from the Greek ‘meteora’ (things high in the air or celestial phenomena) and ‘pathos’ (illness, suffering, pain), and it is used to indicate every pathological dimension in some way related to weather conditions. This concept is referred to a set of temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and brightness. Meteoropathy can be considered a syndrome: in fact, it is represented by a group of symptoms and pathological reactions that manifest when there is a gradual or sudden change in one or more meteorological factors in a given area.

Sexual Experiences Survey - Short Form Perpetration (SES-SFP)

All versions of the revised Sexual Experiences Survey (SES) measure behaviour that meets legal definitions of various sex crimes, with the exception of acts accomplished by verbal coercion not involving threats of physical harm. The acts accomplished by coercion are certainly on the sexual assault spectrum and they are of interest in many fields and settings, but it is important to clearly understand that they are not crimes. Feminist legal scholars argue that these acts should be forms of attempted rape and rape and recommend changing statutory definitions of rape as a goal for advocate...
