The domains (also called factors or scales) for which measures are available within the LEQ system are listed below.

  • This is a combined list of domains from the LEQ-G, LEQ-H, LEQ-YAR, LEQ-Corporate and ROPELOC.  To download the instrumentation see the right-hand column of the LEQ homepage.
  • You can create a customized instrument by picking and choosing the items to measure only the domains relevant to your specific interests.
  • The domains in development may also be of interest.
  • Others may wish to define their own constructs and create measurement items within the style of the LEQ.

Life Effectiveness Domains In Development

Although its a debatable issue, it is probably more appropriate to choose 'in development' measures where they match program goals than psychometrically sound measures which may be less well matched to specific program goals.  To that end, in recent years, there has been ongoing development of specific life effectiveness measures (often for consulting projects).  To access the measures listed below, contact James Neill.
