The Adolescent Coping Scale - Second Edition (ACS-2) is an assessment designed to support young people when examining their own coping behaviour. Updated to measure the usage and helpfulness of coping strategies in general and specific situations, it reliably assesses 20 distinct coping strategies, in adolescents from 12-18 years of age.
The ACS-2 can be administered as a Short Form (20 items - one for each scale), or a Long Form (60 items - providing scores on each of the 20 coping strategies/scales, with three items per scale).
The ACS-2 is able to be administered and scored online via the ACER Psych Testing Platform (APT). Administrators send a request to their client to complete the assessment online, and are then provided with a concise report. APT provides you with more flexibility - ACS-2 credits can be used for your chosen ACS-2 Assessment (short or long form).
