Because the DABS relies on Item Response Theory (IRT), it cannot be scored by hand and requires a specially-developed computer program for scoring the tool.
A paper-and-pencil interview form is used to capture data items. The assessment is scored with an electronic platform on the AAIDD website which requires an access code. Scoring access codes are available in the AAIDD Bookstore and information on accessing the scoring platform is provided with access code purchase.
