Downloadable Tests

Various tests have been devised by ARC for use in the course of our research. Some of these tests are made available here for download.

You are welcome to download these tests provided that they are used for genuine research purposes, and provided due acknowledgement of ARC as the source is given.

Translations

If you have translated any of the ARC tests, and are happy to be contacted by other researchers to obtain a copy of your translation, please contact the webmaster.

Please see our Terms and Conditions for translations.


Please note

Our tests are posted on our website to enable free access to academic researchers. None of them are diagnostic: No single score on any of our tests or questionnaires indicates that an individual has an Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC). If you are concerned that you, or a friend or relative, may have ASC, please discuss these concerns with your GP or family doctor or ask the National Autistic Society (NAS) or equivalent charity in your country, for advice.
