One major task in designing studies is locating appropriate assessments to measure what you have in mind. There are many resources available to help with this task. Here are instruments Paul and colleagues developed, as well as links to instruments and resources from others. Several publications that include instruments are provided as well.
And to learn how to make your own assessments, check out Paul’s Summated Rating Scale Construction.
