THE INSTRUMENT WILL BE DESIGNED FOR ASSESSING TEENS AND YOUNG ADULTS. THE PROPOSED METHODOLOGY ADAPTS THE ASSOCIATIVE GROUP ANALYSIS (AGA) TECHNIQUE TO INDIVIDUAL LEVEL MEASUREMENT. AGA HAS DEMONSTRATED A UNIQUE CAPABILITY TO ASSESS THE DEEPER, PSYCHOLOGICAL DISPOSITIONS AND MOTIVATIONS WHICH UNDERLIE HUMAN BEHAVIOR.
