CAARS QuikScore forms are available in long and short versions. Scale descriptions and administration times for each version are described below. Scoring the CAARS will take about 10 minutes using the handscorable QuikScore form.
The long version of the self-report form (CAARS-S-L) and observer form (CAARS-O-L) have 66 items and contain 9 subscales. There are 4 factor-derived scales that assess a cross-section of ADHD-related symptoms and problem behaviors, 3 DSM-IV Symptoms measures (Inattentive Symptoms, Hyperactive-Impulsive Symptoms and Total ADHD Symptoms), and a 12-item ADHD Index that identifies respondents who might benefit from a more detailed clinical assessment. Takes about 15 minutes to administer.
The short versions of the self-report form (CAARS-S-S) and observer form (CAARS-O-S) contain 26 items and are abbreviated versions of the factor-derived subscales that appear on the long forms. As with the long version, the ADHD index and the Inconsistency Index are incorporated on these forms. The short versions require about 10 minutes to administer and were designed to be brief and to display key dimensions.
