    I'm currently writing my dissertation and have a week left until hand in!
    We're not allowed to talk to our supervisors anymore so I'm relying on here!

    So, I wanted to use the UCLA Loneliness Scale as an IV for Internet Addiction.
    BUT 6 questions have been lost somewhere!
    I can use a shortened version of the scale but don't know where to include the amendment.

    Should I include the full length scale in my materials and then the amended scale straight after or should I include it in the procedure as the new scale was a result of procedure issue?

    Thanks for any help!

    I am not familiar with the scale of which you speak but if you use a shortened version of something, as long as you can justify it in your methodology then this should make sense. Also work to a realistic framework considering the time you have left.

    Good luck.
