Self Determination Study

Researchers at the University of Kansas are developing and validating a new measure of self-determination, the Self-Determination Inventory: Self-Report (SDI:SR). The SDI:SR is a part of the ongoing research in self-determination conducted by Drs. Karrie Shogren and Michael Wehmeyer.

Participants Needed
Individuals ages 18 to 22 with disabilities will be asked to complete a 15-minute self-report survey.


  • An individual online survey report is generated based on student responses.

  • Group data will be available to support instruction in self-determination.

  • Participating schools and organizations will have access to the SDI:SR at no cost once it is validated.

  • A $5.00 gift card will be offered to participants as a thank you for their time.

If you are or may know a potential participant for the survey, please go to and participate now! You can also forward this message to others who may be interested.
