Digital scoring and reporting option available on Q-global® 



The Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) is a recent addition to the Beck series of inventories. It measures the severity of anxiety in adults and adolescents, giving professionals a firm basis upon which to make confident diagnostic decisions.

The BAI evaluates both physiological and cognitive symptoms of anxiety and item overlap with other self report depression inventories is minimised. The BAI consists of 21 items; each item is descriptive of a symptom of anxiety and is rated on a scale of 0 to 3. It can be administered verbally by a trained interviewer or can be self administered.

The BAI has been found to discriminate well between anxious and non anxious diagnostic groups and as a result, is useful as screening measure for anxiety in a variety of clinical populations.

Q global logoScoring and Reporting with Q-global

Q-global™  is our secure and affordable web-based platform for test administration, scoring and reporting. It houses the industry's gold standard in assessment tools and is accessible from any computer connected to the Internet. Q-global helps you quickly and efficiently organise examinee information, generate scores, and produce accurate comprehensive reports.

Two options for scoring and reporting are now available on Q-global:

  • The first option is to pay per-report. Customers who administer this assessment only a few times each year, or those who want the flexibility to pay only as the assessment is used, may prefer this option.

  • The second option is to select an "unlimited use" subscription, where one user of this assessment gets unlimited scoring and reporting for a year. This may be a better option for customers who administer this measure several times each year - and don't want to worry about keeping track of their report expenses.

Please note there is no onscreen administration included in the scoring subscription. Customers selecting this option must manually enter data in order for scores and reports to be generated.
