Assess client symptoms quickly, comprehensively, and at low cost by self-report.

The SAGE-SR is a streamlined battery of psychological tests which screen for a current episode of up to 30 diagnoses. Results are clinically valid and are compatible with international behavioral health diagnostic standards (DSM-5 and ICD-10).

Why Use the SAGE-SR?

Easy for clients to understand
The SAGE-SR is written at a 5th grade reading level, consists of 70 short screening questions, and contains no open-ended questions.

Clients can complete it quickly
Depending upon the number of screening questions endorsed, the average length of time for completion of individual assessments for clients is only 5 to 15 minutes.

Simple for clinicians to administer
Clinicians can administer the SAGE-SR in waiting rooms or send secure links for clients to take the assessment at home using a PC, tablet, or smartphone. It also requires little to no clinician time. No clinician training is required for administration.

Only asks clients relevant questions
Because the SAGE-SR uses branching logic, clients are only asked follow-up questions based on their answers in the initial screener. Although the total item bank of follow-up questions consists of over 500 items, clients will only see necessary follow-up questions based on their screener responses.

DSM-5 compatible
The SAGE-SR covers all diagnostic symptoms of approximately 30 behavioral health diagnoses. Intuitive reports provide feedback and a list of ICD-10 diagnoses that should be considered.

Clear and comprehensive reports
Clinicians can easily evaluate pertinent positive endorsements and draw conclusions about diagnoses. Clinicians can also use the report to view the client’s responses to all items.

Praise for the SAGE-SR

Our primary care physicians have come to really rely on the high-quality reports produced by the SAGE-SR... The SAGE-SR has helped us to capture co-morbid diagnoses that are easy for a busy primary care physician with a large practice to miss.”
