IVA-QS for Educators

This combined visual and auditory CPT test gives you the complete package of tools you need to accurately screen students for ADHD in only eight minutes!

Normed for ages 6 to 96 (N=1700, divided by age and gender), the test incorporates free computer-scored online parent and teacher rating scales, which provide validation for the data. A narrative diagnostic report with built-in word processing capability is included with every test administration at no extra charge.

How can the IVA-QS help you?

DSM-5The IVA-QS is ideally suited for quickly screening students to detect problems with attention and response control. When used in combination with its built-in rating scales, the test has been found in a research study to be 87% accurate in diagnosing individuals who have ADHD and 86% accurate for identifying individuals who do not have ADHD. The test-retest reliability was found to be very high for all major test scales. Thus, the test can be used to measure the effectiveness of interventions including medication or therapeutic treatment approaches.

The IVA-QS has high concordance validity with the IVA-2. However, since the IVA-QS is very short and helps the clinician to clearly communicate his evaluation findings, it saves time and resources. Test administration is simple; the test can be easily administered by a technician. Data analysis is presented in colorful, easy-to-read graphs and tables, as well as in narrative format. Online Parent, Teacher, and Self Rating scales are integrated into the diagnostic report and are automatically computer scored. Each test administration includes the ability to create an unlimited number of reports.

NEW! Test on your iPad or iPhone!

Use your iPad or iPhone as a Remote Testing Device (RTD) and administer the IVA-QS anywhere. All you need to do is to add an RTD license to your IVA-QS station license, and you can do a full day of screening out of the office. READ MORE

How are test results presented?

For a quick, concise review of test results, the Standard Scale Analysis presents the data in the form of charts, graphs and numeric scores. However, to make interpretation even easier, the test results can create three types of reports. The reports are included in the purchase of test administrations and do not need to be bought separately.

The Clinical Report guides the examiner in evaluating the various factors important to their diagnosis of ADHD. It is compatible for use with DSM-5, and helps the clinician integrate their clinical observations with the client’s clinical history, presenting symptoms, other environmental or psychological issues, rating scale results, and IVA-QS data as part of their comprehensive evaluation. Based on the clinician's input, a succinct one-page clinical report is generated and can be modified as needed. This report also enables the examiner to specify their recommendations and accommodations. Using the clinical report, clinicians can make their final diagnosis based on their professional judgment. This report can then be quickly edited using the built-in IVA-QS word processor.
The Standard Report helps guide clinicians in interpreting the IVA-QS data and enables them to integrate it with ADHD rating scale and other clinical data. This report helps aid clinicians in formulating their diagnosis and integrating the test results into a comprehensive evaluation. This report is about two pages long.
The Comparative Report enables the examiner to compare two separate test administrations. It can be used by physicians to help them in determining the effectiveness of a therapeutic intervention. It can also be used as an aid in helping the examiner evaluate the impact of any accidents, injuries, or disorders that may have impaired attentional functioning.
The ADHD Rating Scale Report helps the examiner interpret the IVA-QS ADHD rating scale scores and provides important clinical data to consider as part of a comprehensive evaluation of clients who present with ADHD-type symptoms.

All report documents are generated in an IVA-QS word processor, which is compatible with Microsoft Word 2010 version or higher, as well as other word processing programs. Click here to view examples.
