  ASAP II | Adolescent Self-Assessment Profile II
The Adolescent Self Assessment Profile II (Wanberg, 1991, 1998, 2006) is a 262 item self-report instrument comprised of 24 basic scales and 14 supplemental scales that provides primary order and broad scale measurement of: 1) six major risk-resiliency (strength) factors; 2) assessment of drug use benefits, involvement and disruption; and 3) degree of drug use involvement in nine drug use categories; 4) scales that measure specialized areas of motivation, prosocial responding and defensiveness. The risk-resiliency factor scales are designed to provide bipolar measurement of risk-disruption at one end and resiliency-strength at the other. The core common factor structure of ASAP II is based on the six primary risk-resiliency factors identified in the literature - family, mental health, school adjustment, peer influence, deviancy and drug use symptoms - and has been validated across independent samples.

ASAP II has the purpose of providing an in-depth, differential assessment of the adolescent's psychosocial adjustment and alcohol and other drug (AOD) use involvement, benefits, and disruption. This provides a basis for differential treatment planning. It has utility to be used for pre-treatment, during, and post-treatment assessment to determine changes in perception of the adolescent's psychosocial and AOD use problems. It can be either self-administered or administered through an interview structure.

The ASAP II has a reliable rater scale that allows the evaluator to rate the client across the six major risks factors identified above. This rater scale can be compared with the client's self-report scales. Through the use of both the rater (other report) scale and the self-report scales, the evaluator can utilize a convergent validation model in providing the best estimate of the client's AOD overall degree of adjustment disruption across the major risk factors.

The ASAP II was developed using multivariate methods and procedures. Factor patterns of the 24 broad and 15 primary scales have been replicated across a variety of samples. All scales have good to excellent reliabilities. The ASAP II manual provides good evidence of content and construct validity. Several scales of the ASAP II can be used to test for treatment outcome through a repeated measures model. Scales can be interpreted from both a risk and strength based perspective.
