Psychology Tools is a free to use website dedicated to providing psychology professionals, students, and the general public with transparent access to academically validated psychological assessment tools. We strive to provide test, questionnaires, and assessments in the most streamlined format possible, through a simple interface coupled with automatic scoring.
We only use assessments derived from scholarly psychological journals which have a history of practical application. Our automatic scoring system is designed to save time, prevent human error, and demystify the scoring process. Our results include both raw scores and indicative score ranges wherever possible.

Tests may contain typos or errors in coding which may result in incorrect scores. The scoring ranges are averages and estimates which are not universally applicable. Only direct, personal interaction with a mental health professional can provide you with an accurate assessment of your symptoms.

These adapted versions may not be as reliable since the symptoms of some psychological conditions, and human nature itself, often prevents objective assessment of one's own behavior.
