[en] Sound assessment and measurement is at the heart of every discipline, including health
psychology. Within the current chapter, we address several key issues of assessment and
measurement in health psychology. We discuss the strengths and weaknesses of commonly
used methodologies in health psychology research and clinic, including questionnaire
assessment and ecological momentary assessment, as well as potential pitfalls in using these
assessment methods. Next, we discuss three pivotal features of assessment (i.e. reliability,
validity, and responsiveness) and their importance for assessment of health psychological
constructs. Last, we discuss some examples of tools to assess health outcomes in research and
evidence-based practice as well as future directions in the field of health psychology
