How can the IVA-QS help you?

DSM-5The IVA-QS is ideally suited for quickly screening clients to detect problems with attention and response control. When used in combination with its built-in rating scales as part of a comprehensive evaluation, the test has been found in a new validity study to be 87% accurate in helping clinicians diagnose ADHD in accordance with DSM-5 guidelines. The use of the IVA-QS requires that it be administered under the supervision of a licensed healthcare professional and be used in combination with a comprehensive clinical evaluation. The test itself is not to be used as a stand-alone instrument in making a diagnosis, but does provide examiners with suggestions to aid them in interpreting the results. The test-retest reliability was found to be very high for all major test scales. CLICK HERE for more information about the IVA-QS Validity and Reliability Studies.

The comparative analysis and report provide assistance to clinicians in evaluating the effectiveness of various types of treatment interventions. For more information about the IVA-QS reports and data analyses, and for samples, CLICK HERE.

The IVA-QS has high concordance validity with the IVA-2. However, since the IVA-QS is shorter, 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 clinical 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?

The IVA-QS provides two analyses – Standard, and Comparative. These analyses present the data in the form of charts, graphs, and numeric scores. In addition, narrative, interpretive reports are included with each test administration at no extra charge. You can choose between four types of interpretive reports – Clinical, Standard, Comparative, or Rating Scale. All reports can be customized using the built-in IVA-QS editor and saved in Word or PDF format.

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.

“I’ve been an IVA system user since 1998 and have directly observed this wonderful professional tool that has helped me to assist others in making positive life changes and transforming their daily experiences. The new IVA-QS has once again demonstrated to me the power and effectiveness of this tool as a primary mechanism in the assessment of ADHD. I don’t know what I would have done without it, because it has had a transformative impact upon my practice. I am grateful to the test developers for their having taken the time and effort to bring this wonderful tool to practicing professionals. The new version format (IVA-QS) is very easy to use and provides more data than one could have ever hoped for. I marvel at both the simplicity and complexity of this wonderful instrument. I feel very grateful to have the IVA-QS as one of my primary evaluation tools.” – John Garlock, Ph.D., Family Resource Center, Houston, TX
