Description: 

  • The Almost Perfect Scale - Revised Short Form (APS-R SF) is used to assess attitudes people have towards themselves, their performance, and toward others. The APS-R SF was developed to orthogonally measure the adaptive and maladaptive aspects of perfectionism. The APS-R SF consists of 23 questions, with a 7 point Likert-type response format.

 

  • The Family Almost Perfect Scale (FAPS) is a 17- item measure of the perceived level of perfectionistic standards and evaluation from one's family. It is a modification of the Almot Perfect Scale -- Revised.

 

  • The Dydadic Almost Perfect Scale (DAPS) is a 26-item adaptation of the APS-R that asks participants to respond in terms of their expectations for their partners or significant others.
