The Reynolds Adolescent Depression Scale, 2nd ed. (RADS-2) is a 30-item self-report that measures the four basic dimensions of depression:
The RADS-2 standard scores and associated clinical cutoff score provide an indication of the clinical severity of the individual’s depressive symptoms. A Depression Total score represents the overall severity of depressive symptomatology.
The six RADS-2 critical items are those that have been identified as being most predictive of a depressive disorder diagnosis.
Scores are plotted on a Summary/Profile Form, allowing comparison of elevations across subscales.
The RADS-2 and RADS-2 SF can be administered and scored online via PARiConnect.
