Emotional Quotient Inventory: Youth Version (EQ-i:YV)
Based on the original EQ-i for adults, the EQ-i:YV™ measures the level of emotional and social functioning in children and adolescents. As a strength based assessment, this product highlights areas of positive functioning as well as areas for development. It can be used by psychologists, school counselors, social workers, and psychiatrists to identify an individual's strengths and weaknesses in order to help that individual develop the skills needed for academic, personal, and social success.
How to Use the Assessment
The EQ-i:YV is available online only. Contact NZCER to set up your own MHS Online Assessment Centre.
The full-length version of the EQ-i:YV provides scores for all of the scales, as well as the two validity scales. It is recommended for initial evaluations because it provides a broader assessment of functioning.
The short version of the EQ-i:YV provides scores for all the scales on the full-length version, with the exception of the General Mood scale and the Inconsistency Index. It is ideal for repeat administrations to measure the effectiveness of interventions, and is also used as a screening instrument to identify possible problem areas.
- General Mood
- Stress Management
- Positive Impression (validity)
- Inconsistency Index (validity)
Profile Reports graphically and numerically provide results for each scale, along with a total score representing overall functioning, to summarize each administration.
The normative sample for the EQ-i:YV consists of a large number of children and teenagers from elementary, middle, and high schools across North America. Norms are presented separately for boys and girls in four age intervals.
