Scoring / Benchmarking
Point values are assigned as follows:

Never (a) = 1
Seldom (b) = 2
Sometimes (c) = 3
Often (d) = 4
Always (e) = 5

Sum all items. A range of 4 to 20 points are possible. Higher scores indicate higher levels of impulsivity.

If the goal of your program is to decrease impulsivity, you want to see scores go down by the end of your program.
