About the Course:

Objective: This research presents normative data on the Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire1 (EDE-Q) for samples of undergraduate women in the United States. Method: College women (N = 723), ages 18-25, completed the EDE-Q as part of a larger assessment battery. Results: Average scores, standard deviations, and percentile ranks for the raw Restraint, Eating Concern, Shape Concern, and Weight Concern subscales and the Global score are
reported. Data on the occurrence of objective and subjective bulimic episodes and compensatory behaviors are presented. Conclusion: These results are helpful for clinicians and researchers in the interpretation of the EDE-Q scores of undergraduate women in the United States. Comparisons are drawn between the results for this sample and those of a United Kingdom sample of young adolescent females, an Australian community sample, and an Australian community age-matched sample.

Content for this course is based on an article from the International Journal of Eating Disorders, the official journal of the Association for Eating Disorders.

This course is based on the reading-based online, Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire (EDE-Q): Norms for Undergraduate Women: Provided by the International Journal of Eating Disorders created by Kristine H. Luce, PhD, Janis H. Crowther, PhD, and Michele Pole, MA in 0.
