The Santa Clara Strength of Religious Faith Questionnaire (SCSORF; Plante & Boccaccini, 1997a,b) is a 10-item self-report measure. It was designed to measure strength of religious faith, regardless of religious denomination or affiliation, for use within both research and clinical contexts. Moreover, it is intended to provide researchers with a quick and easy to administer measure of religiosity. Sample items include ‘My religious faith is extremely important to me’ (item-1) and ‘My relationship with God is extremely important to me’ (item-7). The scale uses a 4-point Likert response format, ranging from (1) Strongly disagree to (4) Strongly agree. Scores can range between 10 and 40, with higher aggregate scores reflecting stronger levels of ‘Strength of Religious Faith’.
