Strategy Question Administration Tips

  • Probe responses to strategy questions with questions such as “tell me more about that” or “give me an example”. Do not accept vague responses without asking for a specific example, For e.g. if the client states “I used association”, then ask: “Tell me how you associated items” or if the client says “I thought of a restaurant” then ask, “Tell me more about that ? or how did the items relate to a restaurant?
  • Record the strategies the person identifies verbatim in the text box. Code responses by referring to the strategy definitions on the screen and selecting the highest strategy level using the drop-down menu. Although the person may identify multiple strategies, the highest level strategy is selected and is assigned a score.
  • Note -If the person does not mention the restaurant theme, they are asked an additional question related to the context.
