This webinar is open to Postgraduate Research students and is funded by Queen's University and delivered by the University of East Anglia.
This session will introduce students to the procedures used to develop reliable and valid scales, allowing them to accurately measure a variety of personal and social variables which would otherwise not be directly observable. Led by a tutor well-known for her scale development work in the context of self-determination theory – having designed and implemented both ‘The Controlling Coach Behaviour Scale’ (cited 446 times since 2010) and ‘The Psychological Need Thwarting Scale’ (cited 546 times since 2011) - the session will explore the scale development process from start to finish, beginning with item generation, and moving on to the piloting of items, through data collection, and concluding with a guide to various data analytic techniques, including exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses, as well as appropriate tests of reliability and validity.
Please note: All University of East Anglia training sessions will open for booking three weeks before they are due to run.
