Able Assessment Administration
This Objective Test is administered on a computer that is independent of rater bias or an examiner’s own beliefs. It consists of two assessments. The first is a psychological assessment that uses a bank of questions that are marked and compared against exacting scoring data that has been standardized. The second is an assessment of Visual Reaction Time (VRT) which is an objective measure of sexual interest in boys or girls and adults, ages 6-13, 14-17 and 21 years or older and six other categories of potential sexual interest.
Using these two assessments, each client is given an objective ranking of his or her sexual interest in children, adults, specific paraphilia, and 23 common deviant sexual behaviors. These include child molestation, child internet contact (for sexual purposes), child pornography, internet adult pornography obsession, among others. No test is foolproof and all tests must be interpreted regarding their relevance to the client.
