Let me know if you have questions about the CORE system or instruments. I try to answer Emails as fast as I can and now I’m launching a revamped and more manageable site I will try to convert questions that come up more than a couple of times to entries here. Please read the first FAQ before any others. You may find more detail on a topic in the background and discussion documents though that should be flagged in the FAQ.


  1. Responsibilities and legalities. Please read this short note before any other FAQ!
  2. Are the instruments really free to use?
  3. How do I interpret LD-CORE scores?
  4. Gender classification in CORE instruments.
  5. Age ranges for CORE instruments (particularly the YP-CORE).
  6. Images of CORE instruments (particularly for theses!)
