What is Q Local?
- Enjoy the convenience of administering and scoring for more than 30 tests.
Just install the Q Local software onto your computer using the installation CD.
Download software upgrades for free via the internet.
- Administer assessments on screen or use it to key responses from an
answer sheet into the programme.
- You will receive a USB report counter that plugs into your USB port. This keeps
track of how many reports you have in your inventory. This needs to be plugged
into your computer when buying or generating a report.
Why use it?
- Scoring on some tests can take hours and require the use of many
overlays (MMPI-2). With Q Local it takes a fraction of the time.
- If you administer the assessment on-screen, all you have to do is click a
couple of buttons to generate a report.
- If you hand key the scores from an answer sheet, all you have to do is input
the answers and then generate the report.
- The reports are generated in PDF and can be copied and pasted into other
applications including Microsoft Word.
2.7 - New Content and Features:
- New to MMPI-2 RF® Reporting
- RBS (Response Bias Scale) is an over-reporting indicator associated

Litigant/Claimant (Men) and Forensic, Neuropsychological Examination
- Reports can be printed directly from an MMPI-2 protocol.
- One-page summary of the test taker’s T scores are organised by domain.
- Specific scales and cut-offs for which users would like to see item level
information in the report can now be selected.
