The Eating Disorder Examination (EDE) provides a measure of the range and severity of eating disorder features. The Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire (EDE-Q) is a self-reported questionnaire based on the EDE interview.

Researchers have developed community norms and an amended scoring structure for use of the EDE for adolescent boys and girls aged 14+, the EDE-A.


Scoring and interpretation

A user guide and information on scoring both the EDE-Q and EDE-A is available in the following resources:

Terms of use

The EDE-Q is under copyright, but freely available to use for non-commerical research use only and no permission need to be sought.
