Advantages and Features
Affordable • Comprehensive • Effective • Easy to Use
Simplify Test Administration
Administering an assessment is as simple as selecting the assessment from BetterMind’s centralized library, and giving the client access to the device – there is no need for providers to worry about maintaining supply of test papers, instructions sheets, or sharpened pencils! BetterMind Software instantly scores the assessments, saving you precious time and giving you useful interpretations. Scores are presented as percentile ranks, comparing your clients scores with normative data.
Scores Tests Instantly and Accurately
The moment the client completes the assessments, test scores and interpretations are available for the practitioner to examine – there is no delay and no calculations required on behalf of the practitioner. The results are available on the App or through the clinician’s email. Forget about Z-indexes and T-tables, as the software includes percentiles, sub-scales, and averages when applicable. This feature saves time and ensures scoring is 100% accurate.
Provides Immediate Feedback
When the client completes the assessments, the results are quickly translated into percentiles and data which the clinician can view immediately and discuss with the patient. The software delivers tests with high standards of validity and reliability. It provides detail by which norming and other metrics are based and includes the resources for clinicians to interpret the results.
Access to Dozens of Assessments
BetterMind gives you access to dozens of multiple choice tests to measure outcomes, can assist with case conceptualization, and provide data to support diagnoses.
Secure Data Storage
All BetterMind Software is built incorporating above industry-standard data encryption technologies.
Tracks Outcomes Over Time to Monitor Long-Term Treatment
Regularly measuring assessment results and graphing them over time provides significant and important information and is especially useful for long-term treatment. BetterMind Software’s graphing function can help you determine the proper treatment, track a client’s progress, and gauge the client’s mental health. In fact, research shows regular use of outcome measures could increase engagement and improve the therapeutic relationship, ultimately strengthening the efficacy of treatment.
Graphing can illustrate to clients the impact of triggers, be reminded they can improve, and learn about mood cycles. Using graphs can help clinicians identify life conditions conducive to well-being and those that cause stress. The graph on the left illustrates a long-term [2 year] course of therapy.

The general advantages of computer-based assessment tools over traditional paper-and-pencil testing are well known: increased delivery and scoring efficiency, reduced costs, improved test security, consistency and reliability. The use of web-based software for administering psychometric tests retains all the benefits of traditional computer-based assessments without any of the disadvantages.
For example, administration of assessments through BetterMind’s interface is portable, does not require a designated desk for assessment, can be administered in an examination room type scenario, and does not require the participant to be computer literate. BetterMind will quickly become an essential tool in the healthcare provider’s tool-kit.
