Can hand scoring be made quicker and easier?

Answer: We offer scoring templates that fit over pages 2 and 3 of the forms to indicate the Personal Strengths, syndrome, and DSM-oriented scales on which the items are scored. The time taken to score profiles usually decreases with experience. However, we recommend using the Ages 60-90+ Module to computer score the forms whenever possible, as this is quicker and more accurate. The Module enables users to edit data and to store scores for subsequent analysis, as well as to print paper profiles whenever desired. In addition, the Module displays comparisons of item scores, scale scores, and cross-informant correlations for up to 8 forms per older adult.
