This comprehensive screening instrument identifies problems frequently experienced by college students. Primarily intended for use in college counseling and guidance centers, the CAS will prove helpful in any clinical setting where college students are clients.
The CAS assesses nine areas of adjustment difficulties: Anxiety, Depression, Suicidal Ideation, Substance Abuse, Self-esteem Problems, Interpersonal Problems, Family Problems, Academic Problems, and Career Problems. Students rate the 108 CAS items on a 4-point scale ranging from false, not at all true to very true. Responses are entered on a carbonless, self-scoring Answer Sheet. Scores are then easily transferred to the profile area. Scoring and profiling takes only 3-5 minutes.
