An Inventory of Measurement Tools for Evaluating Community Coalition Characteristics and Functioning

A review of the research literature and the Internet was conducted to identify measurement tools for evaluating coalition functioning. Available information concerning validity and reliability reported in the original article/report is included in these tables, as well as reported associations with other measures. The measurement tools were organized into a set of tables by five general categories (which are not necessarily mutually exclusive): 1) Member Characteristics and Perceptions, 2) Organizational or Group Characteristics, 3) Organizational or Group Processes and Climate, 4) General Coalition Function or Scales Bridging Multiple Constructs, and 5) Impacts and Outcomes. Within each of these general categories, sets of similar constructs are grouped together under subheadings. A paper with additional information regarding this inventory and suggestions for use has been published in Health Education Research (see citation below). The link below will lead you to the summary tables for the measurement tool inventory, in PDF format*:
