Data Collection

MHS is committed to developing reliable and scientifically valid assessments. We perform extensive statistical analyses on data we collect from around the world to ensure that the instruments we develop are of the highest quality.

The MHS Data Collection Department requests your assistance in the norming and validation of products in development. Specifically, we require respondents to complete a paper-and-pencil or online version of an instrument. Participation by both researchers and respondents is voluntary and confidential. All personal information (e.g., respondents' names) is removed prior to analysis of the data to ensure that results cannot be tracked back to any specific individual.

MHS is committed to ensuring that data collection sites benefit from their involvement with the development of MHS instruments.
Please contact us to discuss the options that are available to you.
