Character Strength Research into Positive Psychology Study | VIA Institute

How to Conduct a Study using the VIA Assessments

We aim to provide researchers with barrier free access to state-of-the-art assessments to measure and assess character strengths and their application. All of the assessments and scales have good reliability and accumulating validity, but we continue to develop and refine them. To this end, we invite your collaboration in the investigation of character strengths.
