Derived from the EDI-3, the EDI-3 Referral Form assesses eating disorder risk based on dieting concerns, body weight, weight history, height, and behavioral symptoms indicative of eating disorders.

Features and benefits

  • Can be administered in 5-10 minutes and includes behavioral symptom questions to help identify individuals with potential eating disorders or pathology.
  • Referral indexes are used to identify individuals who have or are at risk for eating disorders. These indexes are based on the individual’s body mass index (BMI) only; on BMI plus responses to EDI-3 questions about excessive eating concerns; and on responses to behavioral questions pertaining to eating disorder pathology.
  • Can be administered in group or individual settings by mental health professionals, school counselors, coaches, camp counselors and others. 

Test structure

  • Includes 30 items on one self-report carbonless form.
  • Includes the three scales that compose the EDI-3 Eating Disorder Risk Composite (Drive for Thinness, Bulimia, Body Dissatisfaction).
  • Written at a sixth-grade reading level.
  • Administration and scoring are available 24/7 on PARiConnect, our online assessment platform.
