Genetic Literacy and Comprehension (GLAC) Measure
Hooker and colleagues designed the Genetic Literacy and Comprehension (GLAC) measure to assess research participant familiarity with eight commonly used genetic terms and concepts (genetic, chromosome, susceptibility, mutation, variation, abnormality, heredity, and sporadic) using a 7-point scale, ranging from strongly agree to strongly disagree with the statement “I am familiar with this term.”
