What Is A Level B Instrument


In previous blogs I have talked about being an evidence based practice (EBP) with an assessment that is categorized as a Level B instrument but what is a Level B instrument and what does that mean?
A, " Level B instrument" means that the assessment that I use has been designed and constructed in a way that meets psychometric standards; and the person administering the assessment has been trained and certified to administer.
Sounds all impressive although what does "psychometric" standards mean ?
Psychometric standards means that the assessment tool that I use has met  rigorous research requirements, examination and testing and is a reliable and validated document. Just for the record a validated assessment and that is any assessment does not necessarily mean it is a Level B Instrument.
Now, to put all this information together. The Anger Management Institute uses an American Medical Association (AMA) approved  tool called the BarOn-2.0 emotional intelligence assessment.  This assessment that I administer is regarded as one of the best assessment tools for moving clients forward from where they are to where they need to be.
Anger Management Institute specializes in Emotional Intelligence (developing people skills) anger and stress management. 510.393.0250
