Grounded in Solid Research
All of Q-interactive’s tests and subtests are backed by rigorous studies.
Research plays an integral role in all aspects of clinicians’ work. Q-interactive™ is no different; it has a solid foundation of research supporting its use. Prior to inclusion in the Q-interactive assessment library, each new type of subtest undergoes an equivalency study to evaluate whether scores generated via testing with Q-interactive are interchangeable with those generated via testing with our standard paper-and-pencil versions.
Currently, raw scores obtained using Q-interactive are interpreted using paper-pencil norms, and the equivalency studies provide support for the validity of this practice. You can access findings from each of the equivalency studies below:
