Emotional Assessment System (EAS-5)
Sistema Autodiagnóstico de Balance Emocional (SABE-5)
The EAS-SABE 5 is an application designed to administer and score Dr. James Choca’s Emotional Assessment System (EAS-5) self-report questionnaire and its Spanish language equivalent (SABE-5). The clinical scales are based on the current DSM-5 criteria and are compatible with ICD. The program is fully bilingual (English/Spanish) and cross-platform (Windows/Mac). Please download and read the Quickstart document for details on how to download and employ the current version of EAS-SABE 5:
Note: EAS-SABE 5 has been updated to v. 2.1.0 (February 2024) in order to run on the latest versions of Windows and macOS. All users should update to this version, which also includes other major changes: Test items are displayed and scored employing a T-F format, the EAS-SABE report has been redesigned, and a new option to employ a paper-and-pencil version of the test has been added.
(A Legacy EAS Reader is available upon request for those who need to convert older EAS-SABE files to the current datafile format for rescoring.)
EAS-SABE 5 is a free download from the author’s website for both Windows and Mac. In each case it employs a conventional installer — for Windows a .msi installer file and for macOS a .dmg disk image — that has been code-signed for security to ensure users that it originates from an authorized developer. (Mac version available soon.)
