Target Audience:
All
How to analyse results (Scoring)
This survey can be used to measure individuals’ responses at various points in time. The change in results can then be analysed to show changes in individual’s behaviour. 
For more detailed looks at the four different aggression factors look at the additional link.
Ease of use:
Very easy to answer the questions. On Upshot it may be worth changing the question type to scale for easier comparison analysis.

Confidence

Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale – (Emcdda.europa.eu, 2019)
Link to Questions.
What is it?
The Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale is a 10-item self-report measure of global self-esteem. It consists of 10 statements related to overall feelings of self-worth or self-acceptance. The items are answered on a four-point scale ranging from Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree. The Self-Esteem Scale has also been administered as an interview. It is also advised to 'add' up these scores to get a value for each question from a group.
Target Audience:
All
How to analyse results:
Each question has a score attached.
For questions (1, 3, 4, 7, 10) the scoring is as follows:
Strongly Agree = 3 
Agree = 2 
Disagree = 1 
Strongly Disagree = 0
And for questions (2, 5, 6, 8, 9) the scoring is in reverse:
Strongly Agree = 0  
Agree = 1 
Disagree = 2 
Strongly Disagree = 3
Add up the scores to get the participant’s self-esteem score. Differences can be seen over time with individuals.
Ease of use:
Simple, short 10 question survey for participants with easy to understand questions. Analysing the results with the reverse scoring can be harder.

Crime

The APIR Wheel can be used to support the analysis of individuals in an initial assessment process. This can then be compared to follow up results after working with the individual for a period of time.
This does not provide a list of questions that should be gone through systematically with the young person for each of the 18 factors, but rather a tool to be used by the assessor to help draw up an assessment profile on the individual following discussions.
Target Audience:
Adolescents
How to analyse results:
By attaching a score to the statements in the Key a before/after comparison analysis can be completed. This can be done by creating the survey with scale questions on Upshot.
Ease of use:
Relies on discussion with individuals to complete in its intended form. But each of the 18 factors could also be translated into questions around each of the different factors if easier.

Physical Wellbeing

Physical Activity Questionnaire for Adolescents (PAQ-A) – (Winkler, 2019)
Link to Questions.
What is it?
Physical Activity Questionnaire for Adolescents (PAQ-A) is a nine-item, seven-day self-report recall questionnaire designed and extensively used for surveillance and monitoring. The PAQ-A is self-administered. It was developed to assess general levels of physical activity for high schools’ students in grades 9-12 and approximately 14-19 years of age. The PAQ-A can be administered in a classroom setting and provides a summary physical activity score derived from eight items (the 9th item does not factor into the overall score), each scored on a 5-point scale. Estimated completion time is 20 minutes. 
Target Audience:
Adults
How to analyse results:
Overall process - Find an activity score between 1 and 5 for each item (excluding item 9)
1) Item 1 Spare Time Activity
- Take the mean of all activities ("no" activity being a 1, "7 times or more" being a 5) on the activity checklist to form a composite score for item 1.
2) Item 2 to 7 (PE, lunch, right after school, evening, weekends, describes you best)
- The answers for each item start from the lowest activity response and progress to the highest activity response.
- Use the reported value that is checked off for each item (the lowest activity response being a 1 and the highest activity response being a 5).
3) Item 8
- Take the mean of all days of the week ("none" being a 1, "very often" being a 5) to form a composite score for item 8.
4) Item 9
- Can be used to identify students who had unusual activity during the previous week, but this question is NOT used as part of the summary activity score.
5) How to calculate the final PAQ-A activity score
- Once you have a value from 1 to 5 for each of the 8 items (items 1 to 8) used in the Physical Activity composite score, you simply take the mean of these 8 items, which results in the final PAQ-A activity summary score.
- A score of 1 indicates low physical activity, whereas a score of 5 indicates high physical activity.
Ease of use:

Simple questionnaire for adults to self-complete. Estimated completion time is 20 minutes. Scoring participants can be a little bit more difficult and would require some extra analysis.

Physical Activity Questionnaire for Children (PAQ-C) – (Winkler, 2019)

Target Audience:
Students aged 8-14 years of age.
How to analyse results:
Overall process - Find an activity score between 1 and 5 for each item (excluding item 9)

Short-term regulation items are: 2, 6, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, and 22. 
Long-term regulation items are: 3, 4, 12, 15, 20, 23, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, and 36. 
When evaluating the scale based on short-term or long-term, the following questions are excluded from scoring: 1, 5, 7, 10, 24, 32, 33, 34, and 35. Score items 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 20, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, and 36 as follows:

Neither true nor untrue for me = 3
Somewhat true for me = 2
Really true for me = 1
Add all the scores together. Higher scores indicate an ability to self-regulate.

Adolescents
How to analyse results:
Responses are coded on a 4-point scale, ranging from "really true" for one descriptor to "really true" for the other descriptor, and averaged. Higher scores indicate greater resistance to peer influence.
Scoring instructions: Score each item from 1 to 4 (reading left to right on the instrument). Reverse-score items 2, 6, and 10. Sum the scores for valid responses and divide by the number of valid items. It is recommended that at least 7 items have valid responses.
Higher scores indicate greater resistance to peer influence.
Ease of use:
Slightly more complex for survey participants to complete. Analysis is also harder.
