About the tools
NCCOR’s landmark tool is the Measures Registry. The Measures Registry provides users with a searchable database of more than 1,600 articles with more than 200 discrete measures to answer their research questions.
Need help selecting the most appropriate measure for your work? Check out the User Guides and Learning Modules below to find out how!
NCCOR’s Measures Registry User Guides are a great resource for those seeking detailed instructions on how to find the best measure for their work. Each User Guide section features a case study that walks you through the process of finding the right measure for your research question, provides an overview of measurement, and describes general principles of measure selection for each of the four domains.
NCCOR’s Measures Registry Learning Modules are ideal for users newer to research and evaluation, or those who need a refresher on key research concepts. The Learning Modules walk you through measurement selection on your own time through 5 to 15-minute modules in the four major domains.
NCCOR’s Decision Tree walks researchers and practitioners through a series of questions regarding whether to develop, adapt, or apply an instrument for obesity measures in high-risk populations. The decision tree also provides five real-world case scenarios that describe the rationale for choosing one of the three measurement approaches.
