The Adolescent Psychopathology Scale (APS) can be used to evaluate the presence and severity of symptoms of psychological disorders and distress, in adolescents aged 12-19 years.
It also assesses other psychological problems and behaviours that may interfere with an adolescent's psychological adaptation and personal competence, including substance abuse, suicidal behaviour, emotional liability, excessive anger, aggression, alienation, and introversion.
The APS Test Booklets contain the 346 inventory items, and is administered in a self-report format.
Test Booklets must be replaced each time testing takes place.
The APS Test Booklets are scored using the APS Scoring Program. The software calculates scores for all scales and automatically generates a Clinical Score Report.
The report includes a summary of APS scale elevations, a score summary table, a profile, a critical items summary form, and an item response summary table.
Alternatively, the APS can be administered and/or scored online via PARiConnect.
