Stress Measurement Toolbox

Purpose of the Stress Measurement Toolbox

The Stress Measurement Toolbox provides a resource of recommendations of stress measures that researchers can use as an information source when deciding which stress measures to include in their studies.

We selected experts to write and review papers that describe what aspects of the construct each measure captures, and highlight unique or important features of each measure. Each entry has been peer-reviewed to create a balanced review of the literature.

Our Toolbox currently includes a range of psychological measures, physiological measures, and measures under development, which can be accessed using the buttons below or by downloading the full PDF here. It should be noted that stress is often associated with levels of or changes in these physiological measures; however, the physiological measures should not themselves be taken to indicate the presence or absence of stress.
