A little help with scoring - PAR Assessment Toolkit

Our friends at PAR have published a nifty little app that is suitable for iPhone, iPod or iPad. It allows one to calculate a patient's age from the date of birth and the date of assessment. It also converts between percentiles, z scores, T scores and standard scores, has an in-build stopwatch and a few other, less useful, features.

I find the score converter very helpful and the age calculator comes in handy as well when I don't feel like calculating the client's age by hand.

It also has an option of purchasing a raw to scaled score conversion calculator for the following tests that may be of interest:
- Personality Assessment Inventory
- Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function
- Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function - Adult version
- Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function - Preschool version
- MMSE and MMSE-2


If you would like to give it a try, head to the App Store and google PAR Assessment Toolkit.

cheers,
Izabela
