Join us in our data collection efforts

Psychology or Education professional? Hogrefe is looking for psychology and education professionals to join our team of experienced test administrators who collect standardisation data for our clinical and educational assessments. Test administrators recruit and test qualified participants and submit the data to Hogrefe for inclusion in our pilot studies, norming sample or validity studies. Test administrators work with internal staff to become fluent in administration of the tests, to understand who a qualified candidate is, and to learn the processes and procedures for collecting and submitting data.

Part of a University programme? Hogrefe wishes to collaborate with university programmes so students can practice their assessment skills and have access to data for creating publications and presentations. Programmes will be responsible for identifying and testing individuals as well as securing all associated parental permissions if required. Grant money is awarded to participating programmes and can be used at the discretion of the university. The university may keep the test kits used for the study, as well as be eligible for ongoing discounts.

Part of an organisation looking for a unique fundraising idea? Hogrefe would like to partner with your organisation to recruit and test participants as part of our assessment research studies. Schools, sports clubs, places of worship and other organisations may participate as an official research site. As a research site, programmes will distribute research flyers and recruit study participants from their membership. Organisations will receive compensation per participant recruited and tested.

Current data collection opportunity

Emotion Regulation Strategies Questionnaire (FEEL-KJ)

The Emotion Regulation Strategies Questionnaire (FEEL-KJ) assesses multi-dimensional and regulation strategies for anger, fear or anxiety, and sadness in 10-19 year olds. Typical users are school psychologists, clinical psychologists, as well as those working in therapy and counselling.

Both adaptive strategies (Action Problem Solving, Distraction, Positive Thinking, Acceptance, Forgetting, Reappraisal, and Cognitive Problem Solving) and maladaptive strategies (Surrender, Aggressive Behaviour, Withdrawal, Self-Devaluation, and Perseveration) are noted. Additionally, the dimensions of Expression, Social Support, and Emotion Control are surveyed. The characteristics recorded with the FEEL-KJ give an indication of the risk for the development of psychopathological abnormalities. The FEEL-KJ is not limited to disorders, but also considers psychosocial competencies, and the results can be used in both developmental and clinical diagnostics as an indicator for prevention and intervention.

Already published in German and Dutch, the FEEL-KJ is in progress in the US and UK. Data in the UK will be collected using paper/pencil or an online form completed by the child. Available for individual or small group testing, the questionnaire takes 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

Hogrefe is recruiting Test Administrators and organisations who serve children from 10 to 19 years of age to participate in the UK standardisation of the FEEL-KJ starting in early 2023.
