Description:

The Brief Comprehensive Effects of Alcohol questionnaire (B-CEOA) is a 15-item version of the Comprehensive Effects of Alcohol Questionnaire (CEOA). The CEOA uses 38 items consisting of 7 factors - 4 positive (Sociability, Tension Reduction, Liquid Courage, and Sexuality) and 3 negative (Cognitive and Behavioral Impairment, Risk and Aggression, and Self-Perception) - for assessing expectancies concerning alcohol effects. Respondents indicate their degree of agreement that a particular effect will likely occur if they drink, using a 1-4 scale (1 = disagree, 4 = agree).The B-CEOA uses 15 items, including 2 items from each of the 7 expectancy scales, except for the Risk and Aggression scale, which contains 3 items.

Protocol:

Choose from DISAGREE TO AGREE depending on whether you expect the effect to happen to you IF YOU WERE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL. These effects will vary, depending on the amount of alcohol you typically consume. Check one answer for the four boxes after each statement.

Scoring Procedure and Interpretation

The Comprehensive Effects of Alcohol (CEOA) questionnaire comprises seven scales (Risk and Aggression, Liquid Courage, Sociability, Self-Perception, Cognitive and Behavioral Impairment, Sexuality, and Tension Reduction) (Fromme et al., 1993). The 15 items of the Brief CEOA (B-CEOA) questionnaire comprise a reduced four-scale model, as follows (Ham et al., 2005):

(1) Risk and Aggression/Liquid Courage/Sociability: items 2, 5, 6, 8, 9, 13, and 14

(2) Self-Perception/Cognitive and Behavioral Impairment: items 10, 11, 12, and 15

(3) Sexuality: items 1 and 4

(4) Tension Reduction: items 3 and 7

The score for each scale is calculated by averaging the item scores, i.e., totaling the item scores and dividing by the number of items in the scale. The scoring scheme reflects factors identified in the original publications. Factor structure may differ in individual studies.

The Substance Abuse and Addiction Working Group acknowledges that the following questions may gather sensitive information relating to the use of substances and/or illegal conduct. If the information is released, it might be damaging to an individual’s employability, lead to social stigmatization, or lead to other consequences.

Most researchers assure confidentiality as part of their informed consent process, as required by their institutional review boards. Further assurance of confidentiality may be obtained by applying to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for a Certificate of Confidentiality, which helps researchers protect the privacy of human research participants.

Selection Rationale

The Brief Comprehensive Effects of Alcohol (B-CEOA) questionnaire is a shorter version of the Comprehensive Effects of Alcohol Questionnaire (CEOA). Although the predictive power of the B-CEOA is slightly lower than the CEOA, the internal consistency was generally maintained in the shorter instrument (Ham et al., 2005).
