The overall score is reported.

A scoring manual and software are provided by the assessment developers.
Score reports present raw scores, standard scores (which are computed based on normative samples), and guidelines for interpreting score meanings.

Evidence was collected from a sample of nearly 10,000 children and adolescents.
Internal consistency reliability estimates (coefficient alpha) of the overall EQ-i: YV and the subscale scores ranged from 0.65 to 0.90 on the long form (Bar-On & Parker, 2000).
