Over recent years, a variety of different methods have been employed in sport to measure coping among athletes. A large volume of research has used traditional methods such as questionnaires and interviews. However, more recently researchers have adapted different techniques from the mainstream psychology literature such as concept maps, diaries, think aloud protocols. One method that has not been used in sport, but has potential is Ecological Momentary Assessment. The purpose of this chapter is to describe the various methods used to assess coping, illustrate how each method can be used, and discuss its strengths and limitations.
