The ASRS Short Form contains a subset of 15 items from the full-length for that best differentiates youth diagnosed with an ASD from youth in the general population. This form can be used to determine which youth are most likely to require additional evaluation or services for an ASD and related issues. The Short Form is also suitable for monitoring treatment/intervention.
The rater writes on the external layers of the form, and the results transfer through to a hidden scoring grid within the internal layers. The assessor then uses the internal layers for tabulating results. Each ASRS QuikScore form includes conversion tables, which are used to convert raw scored to T-scores and percentile ranks. For individuals who wish to use software scoring, ASRS items are also available as response forms that do not include the scoring pages.
