ADHD Quiz is a self-assessment quiz, so if you were hoping to find out how many ADHD kids it takes to screw in a lightbulb, you'll be disappointed*. But if you were hoping to give yourself a once over to see if you have AD/HD, then you'll be pleased.
First, you are greeted with a choice between a short quiz and a long quiz. Short Quiz is "adapted from the 18-question symptom checklist called the Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS v1.1)". Long Quiz's analysis is based on Dr. Hallowell's observations over the past several decades. Short Quiz is comprised of six short questions. Scores are ranked on a scale with "Often" and "Very Often" getting a full point. Get a score of four or more, and the app recommends you see a professional for further testing. I scored 6 out of 6. I may have a problem.
Once you have completed the assessment, the app reveals the "Next Steps" and "Resources" sections. "Resources" gives you links to websites with more information on ADHD. My favorite, though, is "Next Steps". It is simply excellent. There is a 7 step list of diagnosing ADHD, and then there are 24 "Top Tips for Adult ADHD". "Next Steps" is so good, I wish it was accessible from the main screen. The tips are so good they should be available as a poster.
In the top right corner you can select "For Children" which is also filled with excellent advice. Unfortunately, none of this advice is accessible from the main screen of the app. It is only accessible once the test is completed.
Overall, I enjoyed the app and found it very useful, especially the "Next Steps" resources. However, the app is text heavy and not laid out well, especially hiding the excellent resources behind the assessments. In this regard, I didn't find the app ADHD friendly. Ironic. It's also a bit thin for a $1.99 app.
I would hope that the developers address these shortcomings in the near future. In the meantime, if you are looking for a useful ADHD assessment test with ADHD resources for adults and children, then I recommend ADHD Quiz.
