Abstract Title: Now you can compare them all !
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present a comparative analysis of more than 118 science and education instruments used to measure constructs in the learners' cognitive and affective domains, as well as learning progression and learning contexts. The instruments are compared on the following criteria: (a) the construct that the instrument is reported to measure, (b) the number of items in each instrument, (b) the number of dimensions (or factors) each instrument is composed of, (c) the targeted population, (d) internal consistency (e) reliability, and (f) popularity of use (measured in number of citations).  The results show the variability between the different instruments measuring the same or different constructs for each of the compared criteria. The comparison is useful for helping researchers easily choose the appropriate instruments for measuring their constructs of interest.
