Based on the original EQ-i for adults, the EQ-i:YV™ measures the level of emotional and social functioning in children and adolescents. As a strength based assessment, this product highlights areas of positive functioning as well as areas for development. It can be used by psychologists, school counselors, social workers, and psychiatrists to identify an individual’s strengths and weaknesses in order to help that individual develop the skills needed for academic, personal, and social success.

How to Use the Assessment 
There are two versions of the EQ-i:YV—the original full-length version and the short version. Both versions are available as handscored QuikScore™ Forms, and both are available in software and online formats.

The full-length version of the EQ-i:YV provides scores for all of the scales, as well as the two validity scales. It is recommended for initial evaluations because it provides a broader assessment of functioning.

The EQ-i: YV(S) provides scores for all the scales on the full-length version, with the exception of the General Mood scale and the Inconsistency Index. It is ideal for repeat administrations to measure the effectiveness of interventions, and is also used as a screening instrument to identify possible problem areas.
