The Rating the Assessments section displays the assessment critical items, the recommended referral guidelines and level, the assessment subscale raw scores and percentile placement. The assessor uses this form to designate the client's Use Involvement, Use Disruption, AOD Education/Treatment Readiness, and Referral Level. The user can identify the person rating the client, when the assessment was rated, and a notes fields where the assessor may enter any additional information they wish.

There are several methods available for performing the rating of the assessment and treatment recommendation. All information regarding the assessment is available from the rating form. The treatment placement may be made using the rating form directly. If the person assessing the client and making the recommendations for treatment is not available, a "Rating Form" may be printed.
