Based on the BarOn model of emotional intelligence, the BarOn EQ-i:YV measures the level of emotional and social functioning in children and adolescents. It is used by psychologists, school counsellors, social workers, and psychiatrists to identify a child's strong and weak areas and help them develop skills. Emotional intelligence assessment also helps you assist students in coping with demands at school.

The BarOn EQ-i:YV consists of 60 items with five subscales that probe the areas of interpersonal and intrapersonal abilities, stress management, adaptability, and general mood. A Positive Impression scale is included to identify those who may present an exaggerated positive impression, as well as a correction factor to adjust for a positive response bias. The Inconsistency Index identifies inconsistent response styles.


The BarOn EQ-i:Youth Version takes approximately 30 minutes to administer and is a self-report. It is appropriate for persons aged 7-18 years.

Based on Dr Reuven BarOn's model of emotional intelligence.
