Description

Please can you give me a reference for the 15 item instrument used to measure the Big 5 personality traits in wave 3, and also tell me how it is scored i.e. how do you get to the 5 traits (range 1-7) from the 15 items (range 1-7 each).
I can see that 3 of each of the 15 items relate to each trait, but i can also see that this is not a simple unweighted mean of the 3 items.

you can find a description of the method in the online documentation of each variable, e.g. here;

Let me know if this does not answer your question.
