Thereby, possibilities of measure are described according to the theoretical and empirical evidence that guides the researches on the topic, being divided between biological, environmental and self-perception measures of stress, respectively located in the response-based perspective, the stimulus-based perspective and the cognitive perspective. Finally, we sought encouraging the reflective stance of the researchers on the measurement methods and also the possible consideration of combined techniques for deeper scrutiny of stress.
