At Risk for Violence Test (ARFV). For Identifying Violence-Prone Teens and Adults. Manual.
McConochie, William A.
The At Risk for Violence Test (ARFV) is a test used to identify violence prone teens and adults. The ARFV, teen version, is designed for use in public and private schools, grades 6 through 12, as an annual screening early in the school year. Norms for girls and boys are used for scoring reports. The adult version may be used to screen job applicants or to counsel persons with anger and violence control problems. Adult norms are used for individuals over 18 years of age. The ARFV test items are written in a Likert scale format, permitting four levels of agreement or disagreement. This manual contains the test, directions for its administration and evaluation, and evidence of its reliability and validity. Research suggestions and additional follow-up and preventive program suggestions are provided. Also included are suggestions for handling criticisms about the test, and recommendations for managing political issues that might arise when trying to incorporate the test in a school system. (GCP)
