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 166 times since 2010) and ‘The Psychological Need Thwarting Scale’ (cited 181 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.
