This scale is a modified version of the visual analog scale. We found that this scale is easier for subjects to use, resulting in less missing and unclear responses. The psychometrics were done on a print version of the scale above, which is printed in the PDF version of this page (see PDF link on the bottom of this page). Available in English.
