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. 0.9.9.8 (6 August 2020). All users should update to v. 0.9.9.8 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.
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. Please consult the Quickstart document for specific instructions.
Finally, 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. (Current norms are effective as of 6 August 2020.) Consult the Quickstart document for specific instructions.
EAS-SABE now includes the option to administer and input into a datafile a paper-and-pencil version of the test. 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:

A draft version of the EAS-SABE Interpretive Guide is available in English to assist clinicians in understanding EAS-SABE scale scores. (This document is already included in the EAS-SABE application .zip package.)
