BSL (British Sign Language)

Created 1/1/15 for original site, updated 28/3/15 and 17/2/19.

In a project led by Dr. Katherine Rogers, a BSL-using member of the UK Deaf community and a psychologist, the CORE-OM has been translated into BSL with a short video clip for each item.  In 2018 I did some work on moving the clips to vimeo and experimenting with mounting them in LimeSurvey for use from a LimeSurvey installation on this server.

There are still some technicalities to be sorted out but that looks promising. My own take is that the 34 items of the full CORE-OM presented in that way make for a long questionnaire completion time and I’m keen to explore empirically how much time is saved, for what I suspect is fairly little information lost (particularly given a likely difference in completion rates) if the CORE-10 is used instead of the full CORE-OM. 

For now (17/2/19), as I believe Katherine is on leave, contact me (CE) for more information if you are Deaf or work with the Deaf community as I’m very keen to find someone interested in testing the vimeo/LimeSurvey combination.
