Social Validity Questionnaire


A social validity questionnaire consists of questions that focus on the importance of certain social actions in terms of their effect on people. The legitimacy or power of certain actions or decisions is often questionable because they can have far reaching effects on a person’s life. This type of questionnaire can be used in different situations where a contentious issue may be involved and some people feel the need to address its validity in a broader context. The validity of a social issue is based on the impact it has and whether it is for the benefit or detriment of a person’s circumstances.
