Assessment Tools

This page contains information about some commonly used assessment tools or research measures created by NNVAWI members. 

Abuse Assessment Screen

The Abuse Assessment Screen (AAS) is a brief, validated tool designed to identify women who have experienced violence from a partner in the past 12 months. It is useful as both a research and clinical tool.    

For current information about the AAS, see:
