Assessment Tool Example

The following battery of existing measures consists of 405 items is an example of a battery that covers most of the HiTOP traits and components as currently articulated. All measures have community normative data, such that a patients total score on each scale can be converted to T-scores with a percentile score indicating severity relative to community norms. This battery is not necessarily endorsed by the HiTOP consortium but provides an example of how a clinician can put together existing instruments to collect information on most HiTOP components. All instruments are freely available with author permission.
