We are also making available free software which compute simple
statistics or more complex psychometric
results using popular questionnaires. We have tried to focus on instruments where the original
questionnaire has been made freely available by
|DASS 21 Scoring & Interpretation
||The Depression Anxiety Stress Scales (DASS; Lovibond & Lovibond, 1995) is a freely available psychometric
test assessing Depression, Anxiety and Stress. There is a 42 item and 21 item
version of this instrument. This programme below will score and provide
interpretive guidelines for the 21 item version.
|PTSD Scoring &
||The PTSD Checklist is a 17 item trauma symptom severity
checklist. This second version programme computes scores and
interprets according to both 'research rules' and 'DSM-IV rules'.
|BDI Scoring &
||The Beck Depression Inventory in a 21 item measure of depressive
symptomatology. This scorer will provide z scores, percentiles and a
category rating of the derived score.
Very Average Generator
||This small application computes averages for up to 6 numbers
using both unweighted and weighted formulae.
||This application will allow you to convert the standard error of
the mean into a standard deviation and also allow you to compute the
standard deviation from a given confidence interval (e.g., 95%
Z-Score & Percentile
||This application computes Z-scores and percentiles for a mean
and standard deviation (SD). It will also convert between an SD and
a confidence interval and convert between a confidence interval and
a SD. It will also compute whether a score is significantly
different from a scale's mean (e.g., whether a score on a
questionnaire is significantly different from the mean).
Rate Success Generator
||This programme computes the likely number of true hits one would
get by chance if one randomly allocated individuals to one of two
groups. It is useful to compare your success rate compared to that
(d Prime) Generator
||Inspired by Prof Jeff Lohr, this programme computes two types of
d'. In the first version (where no base rates are known), d' is the
standardised difference between a true signal and an untrue signal
(i.e., noise). The second version of d' computes probabilities of a
condition given the hits (true signals), false alarms (untrue
signals; i.e., noise), and base rates (how prevalent is the
