BACKGROUND INFO

											*Purpose*
This script implements the Decisional Forgiveness Scale (DFS) as described in:

Worthington et al (2012):“Decisional and Emotional Forgiveness: Conceptualization and Development of Self- Report Measures.” 
(unpublished manusscript)

This instrument can be found on page 39 of “Decisional and Emotional Forgiveness: Conceptualization and Development of Self- Report Measures.” 
Available online at: http://www.evworthington-forgiveness.com/assessment-scales/


											  *Task*
8 5-point Likert Scale.
2 Subscales:
1. Inhibition of Harmful Intentions
2. Prosocial Intentions

DATA FILE INFORMATION: 
The default data stored in the data files are:

(1) Raw data file: 'DFS.iqdat'

date, time, group, subject:		date and time script was run with the current group/subjectnumber 
build:							the Inquisit build 

q*_response:					score given (in assigned values) - reflects reversed scoring where appropropriate
q*_latency:						how much time (in ms) the participant spent on the surveypage with this particular question (the last time this particular surveypage was visited)


(2) Summary data file: 'DFS_summary.iqdat' (Inquisit Lab: one data file per participant)

script.startdate:				date script was run
script.starttime:				time script was started
script.subjectid:				subject id number
script.groupid:					group id number
script.elapsedtime:				time it took to run script (in ms)
computer.platform:				the platform the script was run on
/completed:						0 = script was not completed (prematurely aborted); 1 = script was completed (all conditions run)
/IHI:							Inhibition of Harmful Intention Subscale score (items reversed scored where appropriate) (Range:4-20)
/PSI:							Prosocial Intention Subscale score (items reversed scored where appropriate) (Range: 4-20 )
/total:							total score (range: 8-40)



QUESTIONNAIRE SET-UP
8 5-point Likert Scale.
2 Subscales:
1. Inhibition of Harmful Intentions (questions: 1*, 4*, 6*, 8); the lower the score, the fewer harmful intentions are inhibited
2. Prosocial Intentions (questions: 2*, 3, 5, 7*); the lower the score, the fewer intentions are prosocial

* reversed scored questions
