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 read the Quickstart instructions before you download the .zip package for your system (Win or Mac).
Note: EAS-SABE has been updated to v. 0.9.9.9 (23 Sept 2020). All users should update to v. 0.9.9.9 in order to employ the newest features, which include administration in the T-F format, an updated version of the EAS report, and the option to employ a paper-and-pencil version of the test.
Audiofiles. Because EAS-SABE 5 is designed to “speak” each test item when it is presented on screen, you must download also the folder that includes English- and Spanish-language audio recordings for each item. Consult the Quickstart document for specific instructions.
(Note: If you downloaded an EAS-SABE audiofiles folder prior to 23 Sept 2020, you may prefer to update only the one Spanish-language audiofile that has changed. Download the new .wav audiofile S2559.wav in a .zip archive, extract the file, and substitute this item for the original in your Audiofiles folder.)
Test Norms. In order to generate EAS-SABE test reports, you must download the folder that includes the most recent normative data required to calculate T-scores. Because the test is still under development, these norms will be updated periodically. (Norms updated most recently on 23 September 2020.) Consult the Quickstart document for specific instructions.
Print Version. EAS-SABE 5 now includes the option to input into the program the responses recorded on a paper-and-pencil version of the test questionnaire. The resulting datafile can be scored and a test report generated from within the program. English and gender-specific Spanish versions of the questionnaire are available for printout as PDF documents, along with the corresponding answer forms. See the Quickstart document for details.
(Note: The Spanish-language forms have been updated to match the one modified audiofile mentioned above.)
EAS5 Documentation. Details regarding the original development and validation of EAS5 are included in this document (currently available only in English).
EAS Interpretive Guide. A draft version of the EAS-SABE Interpretive Guide is available in English to assist clinicians in understanding EAS-SABE scale scores.
