Assessment Reports
Assessment Reports provides you with information about the youth’s scores and how they compare to other youth. This report also includes Feedback Forms which are helpful when you are presenting the results of the parent, teacher and self-report forms. The Feedback Forms will help you summarize the results in an easy to understand way. 

Progress Reports
Progress Reports combine the results of two to four administrations. This report highlights important changes that have taken place over time.

Comparative Reports
Comparative Reports compare the results of two to five administrations from different raters (e.g., mother, father, and a teacher) to establish the similarities and difference in reports of the youth’s functioning in different contexts.
