Sizing Them Up© (Self-Administered)
Provide the respondent with a pen or a pencil and a quiet place.
The parent or caregiver will answer questions regarding their child’s quality of life and their perceptions of how the child’s weight / shape / size impact day- to-day activities. Responses should indicate how the child has been feeling in the past month regarding his or her weight / shape / size.
Instructions to Parent or Caregiver:
Tell the parent or caregiver there are no right or wrong answers. It is important for them to answer all the questions. If parents or caregivers are unsure of how to answer a particular question, tell them to choose the response that seems to best fit their child’s situation.
Sizing Me Up© (Interviewer-Administered)
The questionnaire is formatted to be used by an interviewer and should only be administered to a child in interview format. Children 11-13 years of age may complete the measure on their own after the practice items.
Directions to be read aloud by the interviewer will be in italics on the questionnaire.
An “Answer Choice Card” should be given to the child with the options of none, a little, a lot and all of the time. Make sure the child understands these concepts.
Instructions to the Child:
Tell the child you will be asking questions about some things he or she thinks and feels. There is no right or wrong answers. For each question, the child will look at the card and choose an answer. If a child is unsure of an answer, pick the answer that is best for him or her.
