Outcomes Scoring Guidelines
This document contains the guidelines that should be followed when scoring the subscales on the outcomes instruments. Vendor techologies used to process outcomes data should compute subscale scores according to these guidelines.
Community Functioning Scale Scoring Tools
Because the computation of the community functioning scale score is somewhat complex, the Ohio Department of Mental Health (ODMH) Outcomes Team has developed two tools to assist agencies in computing the score. One is used with the ODMH Data Entry & Reports Template and one is for providers not using the template. Links to the tools and instructions for their use are posted below. Please contact the Outcomes Support Team if you have questions regarding these tools.
For providers using the Microsoft Access 2000 ODMH Data Entry & Reports Template:
For providers NOT using the Microsoft Access 2000 ODMH Data Entry & Reports Template:

The information in this document is designed to provide a quick validity check of reverse scoring for those agencies NOT using the ODMH Data Entry & Reports Template.
