Manuals/User Guides

No tool will work as expected without the knowledge to use it skillfully. Health surveys, like the SF-36v2®, are no different. This is why we publish manuals and user guides — helpful resources for customers using our surveys.

These resources provide users with the information necessary to fully understand our surveys and to use them properly — how to administer them, interpret results and become familiar with their real-world applications. Our manuals/user guides are comprehensive and user-friendly, providing access to important information not available anywhere else. The following information is included in each:

  • Administration instructions
  • Interpretation guidelines
  • Development summary
  • Psychometric overview — reliability, validity
  • Uses/applications

In addition to manuals/user guides for our surveys, we also have some available for other products such as the Smart Measurement® System, our popular Internet-based data collection service.

Our manuals/user guides are available in various formats including hard copy and PDF.

To learn which are currently available, please contact an Account Executive.
