In light of the clinical importance of satisfaction in psychological assessments, the lack of research related to consultative assessment, and the absence of empirical methods to measure the satisfaction of referring professionals in consultative assessments, the Consultative Assessment Questionnaire (C-AQ) was developed. The measure assesses the satisfaction of the referring professional with a consultative assessment. It was created using a rational-empirical approach. Using confirmed perspective content analysis five initial scales were developed. This measure has many important research and clinical applications related to measuring the effectiveness of consultative assessments. The C-AQ will be further refined and validity data will be collected in a second phase of this project.
