One of our nonprofit missions at the VIA Institute is to advance the science of character strengths. To this end, we want to make it easy for you to use our VIA Assessments in your research studies, free of charge. If you are interested in using a VIA Assessment in a research project, simply register or sign in to your VIA Account and create your Researcher Site.
What Is A Researcher Site?
A VIA Researcher Site allows you to create a unique link to the VIA Assessment of your choice. You can send the link to your research participants and they will use it to complete the assessment. Their survey results will be aggregaged into an Excel spreadsheet that you can download from your account at anytime. This service is provided by VIA completely free of charge.
What Information Is Needed To Set-up A Researcher Site?
We will ask for some general information (name, email address, DOB and gender) to set-up your VIA account and then ask that you complete a Research Submission Form to give us a brief description of your research project. It is our goal to stay up-to-date on the latest research around character strengths so we are interested in learning about your proposed studies. After agreeing to our Terms and Conditions you will be directed to set-up your Researcher Site. It's that easy! Get started now.
