The Autonomy Support Questionnaire (ASQ) derived from the “Friendship Autonomy Support Questionnaire (FASQ)” developed by Deci, La Guardia, Moller, Scheiner, & Ryan, 2006. The FASQ was used to assess an individual’s perception of the degree to which a close friend is generally autonomy supportive within the relationship.
Legate, Ryan, & Weinstein (2012) adapted and elaborated on the FASQ to assess the degree to which an individual perceives autonomy support versus pressure and control
of family, school, coworkers, religious community, and the lesbian, gay and bisexual community. These elaborated scales would become the ASQ.
Specifically, the ASQ outlined the following five contexts (specifying the target):
- School Peers
- Religious Community
The individual items by contexts can be found on the following pages below.
