MSI – Adolescent (Multiphasic Sexual Inventory)
The adolescent male form of the MSI II (2001) is patterned after the adult male MSI II version which designed to measure the sexual characteristics of sex offenders or alleged sex offenders. An extensive report of the MSI II psychometric properties is provided. and almost all of the scales developed for it have been included in the adolescent male version. In addition, there are new measures including behavioral scales such as ADHD, OD, Societal Adjustment and Victimization History. Other scales were modified to better address the needs of adolescents and some scales that address issues primarily for adults were dropped. Internal consistency coefficients and a large geographic sample have been obtained.
The adolescent female form of the MSI II (1995) contains most of the basic scales found in the other forms of the MSI II instruments. Research involving this form of the MSI II has been limited because of a dearth of cases referred.
