Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire Short Form (Q-LES-Q-SF; Endicott et al,1993). The Q-LES-Q-SF evaluates general activities that are assessed in the longer form of the Q- LES-Q. Each item uses a 5-point scale ranging from 1 (very poor) to 5 (very good). A total score is derived from 14 items with a maximum score of 70 and with higher scores indicating greater life satisfaction and enjoyment. Participants rate their satisfaction with the following domains of activity: physical health, feelings, work, household duties, school/course work, leisure time activities, and social relations. Test-retest reliability for the Q-LES-Q-SF has been shown to be .86 (Rapaport et al, 2005) and internal consistency (Cronbach’s alpha) has been shown to range from .86 to .90 (Rapaport et al, 2005; Wyrwich et al, 2009).
