"A common, validated survey item for measuring the degree of collaboration within their partnership or coalition. The data generated by this measure are often used as the basis for a network analysis."
"The Level of Collaboration Scale was developed from existing models and instruments with the purpose of assessing collaboration among grant partners. In developing the instrument, the detailed descriptions of community linkage provided by Hogue (1993) and discussed by Borden and Perkins (1998, 1999) were combined and shortened. Given the definitions of each level of collaboration, respondents are asked to what extent they collaborate with each other grant partner. "
