It takes about 40-50 minutes to complete andis intended for large-scale survey projects. It is not an individual measure, but yieldsaggregate reports for groups of youth. It provides detailed assessment of the presence orabsence of each of the 40 Developmental Assets. It was not designed for measuringchanges in assets over time or for purposes of program evaluation.The DAP is a 58 item survey that takes about 10 minutes to complete and isfocused exclusively on assets. It is an individual measure that yields quantitative scoresfor asset categories and context areas portrayed in a profile format. It cannot be used todetermine the presence or absence of each of the 40 assets. It is designed to be sensitiveto changes in reported assets over time and it is suited to research and programevaluation.i
