Based on the BarOn model of emotional intelligence, the BarOn EQ-i:YV measures the level of emotional and social functioning in children and adolescents.  It is used by psychologists, school counsellors, social workers, and psychiatrists to identify a child's strong and weak areas and help them develop skills.  Emotional intelligence assessment also helps you assist students in coping with demands at school.

The BarOn EQ-i:YV consists of 60 items with five subscales that probe the areas of interpersonal and intrapersonal abilities, stress management, adaptability and general mood.  A Positive Impression scale is included to identify those who may present an exaggerated positive impression, as well as a correction factor to adjust for a positive response bias.  The Inconsistency Index identifies inconsistent response styles.


The BarOn EQ-i:Youth Version takes approximately 30 minutes to administer and is a self-report.  It is appropriate for persons aged 7-18 years.

Based on Dr Reuven BarOn's model of emotional intelligence.


The BarOn EQ-i:YV is currently offered in online format for administration and report generation and may be completed Online using the MHS Online Assessment Center (online administration, scoring/reporting).  The BarOn EQ-i:YV offers a report, providing graphical information on the total EQ score, 5 composite and 15 subscale scores.
