Chart of Tools for Measuring Empathy

Our paper prototype and research member Jessica Cheng has created a chart to document and compare tools in measuring empathy. This instrument table demonstrates the different tools and measurements that are utilized to measure empathy. Because empathy is a complex, multifaceted trait, it is often measured through surveys. There have been different forms of the surveys that range from being situational based in order to detect levels of empathy based on resolution choices to the division of empathy in attempts for categorization. For example, there have been efforts made to divide empathy into different characteristics to create a more holistic view of empathy. There are little to no tools that utilize biological feedback in order to measure the range of empathy. Surveys have been the sought out manner in which empathy has been quantified.
