The RAASI is a self-report measure that provides indications of the clinical severity of the most meaningful domains of psychological adjustment problems.

Assesses the frequency of signs and symptoms of adjustment problems

  • Its 32 items are derived from the item pool of the Adolescent Psychopathology Scale (APS).
  • The RAASI renders an Adjustment Total and four factorially derived scales (Antisocial Behavior, Anger Control, Emotional Distress, and Positive Self) whose scores provide greater specificity into the nature of an adolescent’s psychological adjustment problems.
  • Using a 3-point response format, items require respondents to endorse the response that best describes how they have been feeling over the past 6 months.
