Traditionally, psychological assessment methods have generally not involved repeated self-report within the context of daily life. Rather, assessment measures have typically relied on responses provided in an experimental context, at the assigned time, and often using a one-time survey. This approach to understanding participant characteristics, experiences, and/or growth has significant limitations in terms of intra-subject variability and ecological validity. Ecological momentary assessment (EMA) refers to a set of methodologies specifically designed to address these limitations. This presentation will introduce EMA and the design of smartphone study protocols, examine how smartphones present new possibilities for EMA, and address evolving work with ecological momentary intervention (EMI).
