Based on the original EQ-i for adults, the Emotional Quotient Inventory: Youth Version (EQ-i:YV) measures the level of emotional and social functioning in children and adolescents.
As a strength based assessment, it highlights areas of positive functioning as well as areas for development, and help an individual develop the skills needed for academic, personal and social success.
There are two versions of the EQ-i:YV—the full-length version and the short-version.
The full-length version of the EQ-i:YV provides scores for all of the scales, as well as two validity scales. It is recommended for initial evaluations because it provides a broader assessment of functioning.
The EQ-i:YV-Short Form (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.
The EQ-i:YV is administered and scored online via the MHS Assessment Center+ (MAC+).
