When questionnaires are completed, most will generate a score that will inform the clinician based on the client's responses. Each questionnaire's scoring is different and clinicians should learn how to interpret the scoring results whether that is reading research materials or reviewing the reference websites provided by OutcomeTools on the Questionnaire Library.

You will find the score in the upper right hand corner of the completed questionnaire.

Individual questionnaire results can be accessed in three different locations:

  1. On the Questionnaires tab in OutcomeTools.
  2. On the OutcomeTools tab in BestNotes.
  3. On the Activity Log in BestNotes.
