GASP Measures Database

Welcome to the GASP Measures database, made possible by an interdivisional grant from APA, sponsored by Divisions 8, 9, and 44. This free public resource basically provides "one-stop shopping" for researchers seeking measures designed for lesbian/gay/bisexual issues or populations. You can browse the entire list, or you can search for measures focusing on particular topics, such as (for example) internalized homophobia or identity development. For each measure, we have included as much information as we were able to obtain, including its general intent, length, original citation, detailed psychometric information, contact information for the author, etc. When possible, we have included the scale itself. We certainly hope that you will find this useful, and we also encourage you to send copies of any findings using the scales to the authors themselves, many of whom would like to continue to collect information on such matters to keep their psychometric information up to date.

Finally, if you discover a measure that we do not yet have represented, or if you design or revise a scale yourself, please let us know! In order to make this resource as comprehensive, high-quality, and useful as possible, we really need input from "the trenches," as it were.

Please e-mail suggestions, measures, and other materials directly to Lisa Diamond at .
