FAQ
Who can I contact to get permission to apply the Toolkit in my research/study?

At the present time the IDB Toolkit is only available for use in IDB projects.  In addition, given the excess demand for the team’s time, we are currently in a pilot phase in which we are inviting a limited number of projects to apply the toolkit.

To propose your project for consideration, please request the form “IDB Youth Toolkit Registration-Beta Version”. The request will be reviewed by the technical team and SCL management will determine the eligibility of projects. If your project is selected as a pilot the team leader will be asked to agree to the terms of use.

You can contact Suzanne Duryea, Principal Research Economist (SCL/SCL), who is the Project Coordinator leading the IDB Youth Toolkit team at Suzanned@iadb.org or extension 3589.

FAQ
Can I use the Toolkit to develop surveys in a language other than the official ones used by the Bank?

The Toolkit and its preloaded instruments (tasks, scales and questionnaires) are presented in the Bank’s official languages (English, French, Portuguese and Spanish), but one can edit the preloaded instruments and create new ones. Therefore, you will be able to design a survey which, as a final output, could be in any language of your preference, including languages other than the Bank’s official ones.

FAQ
How can I obtain more information about the preloaded instruments?

The preloaded instruments are properly referenced in the Toolkit. We have included an internet link where you will find the original reference of each instrument, thus a good start to obtain additional information about them is to review these references. Moreover, all of the preloaded instruments are renowned tasks, scales or questionnaires widely used in the psychometric field and the social sciences, meaning that additional information about each one of them is available on the web. We also offer guidelines and manuals that describe some of the attributes of these instruments in more detail.
