Middle-Range Instruments

  • Stephanie B. Hoffman
Part of the Issues in the Practice of Psychology book series (IPPS)

Abstract

This chapter addresses the 11 middle-range instruments. Each instrument measures four of the eight dimensions of our model of team performance (see Chapter 3). Table 10.1 summarizes relevant information about these instruments. In this table, instruments are alphabetized by the name of the developer(s). We designated the instruments in bold face type as “best measures.” They are discussed in more detail in Chapter 14. The critiques of each of these instruments follow the summary table. An instrument with a “best measures” designation has an asterisk after its title at the beginning of the critique
