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.
