Implementation Materials

The HWISE, BWISE and IWISE scales are open-access, which means that anyone can use them so long as the work is attributed.

Manuals

To facilitate their use, we have prepared a visually accessible implementation manual.

To maintain implementation fidelity, we request that individuals do not alter the scale beyond the suggested modifications outlined in the manual. Any modifications made to the HWISE Scale should be specified in any written reports and publications.
