Description: Community Reintegration of Injured Service Members-Computer Adapted-Test (CRIS-CAT) is an application used in research studies to measure and track community integration. The CRIS-CAT software allows self-administration of the test through an audio feature that reads each question out loud to the subject. The CAT algorithm selects items for respondents based on their prior responses, and thus can calculate the score of the measure with fewer items and greater precision as compared to paper versions of the CRIS.

This product stores completed test reports in a Microsoft Access database.

Note: There is no website dedicated to the technology.
