Description of the Test

The BarOn EQ-i: YV™ (Youth Version) is designed to measure emotional intelligence in young people aged 7 to 18 years. It is based on the BarOn model, which suggests that emotional intelligence pertains to the emotional, personal and social dimensions of intelligence and comprises abilities related to understanding oneself and others, relating to people, adapting to changing environmental demands and managing emotions. The BarOn EQ-i: YV (long form) consists of 60 items that are distributed across seven scales: Total Emotional Intelligence (made up of Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, Adaptability and Stress Management), General Mood and Positive Impression. It also includes a scale that assesses item response consistency (Inconsistency Index), which is designed to identify random responding. There is also a short form of the test containing 30 items which omits the General Mood scale. The BarOn EQ-i: YV is designed to be used as part of a routine screening device in a number of settings such as schools, outpatient clinics, residential treatment centres and private practice offices. Potential test users include psychologists, doctors, social workers, teachers and careers advisors.
