Comparative Reports combine the results of different raters to provide an overview of an individual's scores from a multi-rater perspective. This highlights potentially important inter-rater differences in scores. Profile Reports summarize the results of an individual administration, providing scores for all scales.
The HPSI is available in handscored, online, and software format. With the handscored format, you use MHS QuikScore™ Forms to conveniently administer and score the HPSI. With the online and software formats, you can instantly generate a Profile Report after the respondent has completed the assessment.
Reliability and Validity
The HPSI was developed following rigorous test-development procedures. The manual covers the historical foundation upon which the HPSI is based and offers a series of case studies as concrete examples of the HPSI's applicability in a variety of clinical settings. Detailed data are presented, including:
Internal consistency and test-retest stability, as primary indices of test reliability
Various studies revealed values representing extremely acceptable levels of internal consistency reliability for a screening inventory
Holden, using a four-week retesting interval with 108 undergraduates, found reliabilities to exceed .83 for every HPSI scale
A number of factor analyses on the HPSI items
A number of studies with the HPSI that examined scale intercorrelation, supporting the notion that the Psychiatric Symptomatology, Social Symptomatology, and Depression scales are distinct concepts
Values indicating acceptable levels of validity for a quick-screening form, and supporting the HPSI’s validity index
Criterion, convergent validity, and its ability to detect clinical changes
Normative data for general adults, psychiatric adults, male adult psychiatric offenders, high school students, and university students are provided in the manual.
