Describe Modifications

The text and responses of HDQLIFE items cannot be altered in any way and still be considered an HDQLIFE item. Users are welcome to modify the items, but cannot refer to these modified items as HDQLIFE.  There are no data to determine  whether or not a modified version would have the same psychometric properties as the original HDQLIFE item.  If you do choose to modify items, please clearly specify how the items were modified in any publications or other publicly disseminated products.  Any changes to the syntax, including time frame, item text, and response options should be clearly described.
