This part of the DiSTO project develops and tests questionnaires on attitudes, skills, uses, and outcomes of use of digital media that can be used by the wider academic community in full or in short item versions. Originally developed and tested in the UK and the Netherlands, these measures are now used and developed internationally by our partners.
Many projects have adapted the skills scales and official DiSTO partners are developing measures for and testing the full model that links social and digital inequalities. The skills, uses and outcomes measures come in versions that are suitable for work across generations in projects involving young people and adults. This enables the testing of the cross-cultural validity and cross generational validity of the scales. Validity is determined through cognitive interviews, pilot surveys and performance tests in various countries. See the links below for questionnaires in various languages and links to country pages with more information on the specifics for each DiSTO partner project.
