How do I know if the ARTIC Scale will fit my needs?

The ARTIC Scale is a copywritten pdf survey which you print and administer to your study participants. Alternatively, it can be used as an online survey through platforms such as Qualtrics or LimeSurvey.

Having expertise in data management and analysis or access to a skilled evaluator or researcher is essential to successful use of the paper/pencil version.

Do have the capacity to…

  • Administer a paper/pencil survey at multiple time points in a way that  ensures participant confidentiality?
  • Manually enter all participant data at each time point into SPSS and complete data analysis using provided instructions?
  • Generate meaningful reports and graphs that illustrate the data analysis, and support data-driven decisions?
  • Are you seeking a measure that is also available in a language other than English (currently available in Spanish, French, Japanese, Farsi, Dutch, ad Turkish)?

…then the ARTIC Scale may fit your needs.
