Scoring the Social Skills Questionnaire (Youth)

Scores are rated from 0 (Not true), 1 (Sometimes true) to 2 (Mostly true)

Although three factor scores can be derived (see Technical Manual listed above), normally the total score is used as the factors correlate significantly with each other.  The total score is computed by adding up the scores (0,1,2) for each item.  Total scores range from 0 to 60. Means and SDs for the total score are provided in the Technical Supplement (which can be downloaded from the link above).
