Constructing the IMI for your study. First‚ decide which of the variables (factors) you want to use‚ based on what theoretical questions you are addressing. Then‚ use the items from those factors‚ randomly ordered. If you use the value/usefulness items‚ you will need to complete the three items as appropriate. In other words‚ if you were studying whether the person believes an activity is useful for improving concentration‚ or becoming a better basketball player‚ or whatever‚ then fill in the blanks with that information. If you do not want to refer to a particular outcome‚ then just truncate the items with its being useful‚ helpful‚ or important
