A quick personality screener, the Personality Assessment Screener (PAS) is derived from the full-length Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI). The 22 PAS items are those from the PAI that are the most sensitive to a broad range of contemporary clinical problems. The PAS can help determine the need for follow-up with a full evaluation of psychopathology, focus initial client interviews on specific problem areas, and target certain clinical areas for follow-up testing.
The PAS can be administered and scored by hand, via the PAI Software Portfolio Downlaod (PAI-SP) and online (PARiConnect).
Instead of inputting responses from a completed print administration, counter serials allow the client to sit at the computer (where the PAI-SP is installed) and input their responses directly into the program.
The PAS Counter Serial Number (50) allows for 50 on-screen administration of the PAS, via the PAI-SP.
