Affect Control Theory presents beautifully in a classroom to undergraduate, graduate, and lay audiences alike, and is a powerful tool for academic research. Using the tools that will be gathered here, we hope to make the features of this theory and its many applications more accessible to all.

In the near future, this page will have links to resources for academic researchers:

  • general tutorial for ACT studies
  • directions and links for creating an equation study
  • directions and links for creating a dictionary study
  • guide for conducting studies in new languages
  • explanation of purposeful design structure
  • online tool to automatically generate a survey given a researcher's list
  • explanation of, guide, and link to Qualtrics ACT survey generator

and, so that they may easily turn their students into engaged and prepared social science researchers, links to resources for teachers:

  • a tutorial video on teaching Affect Control Theory and Interact in the classroom, with suggestions on approach and examples
  • module tools with clickable links for:
    • Interact
    • surveyor
  • powerpoint on EPA measurements
  • powerpoint on explaining the equations
  • powerpoint on the newest ACT theories, ACT-S and ACT-I
