This is a screening test for adult ADHD. It is not a diagnostic instrument. Structured so as to differentiate between two distinct components of ADHD diagnosis (namely, inattention together with hyperactivity-impulsivity), this ADHD test is also sensitive to factors which typically preclude a diagnosis of ADHD. Scores over 24 together with the absence of mitigating factors are typically consistent with experiences which, under the careful evaluation of a psychiatrist, may be considered symptomatic of ADHD. With regard to mitigating factors, note in particular that any of the conditions mentioned in question 22 may better account for these symptoms, even where those systems yield a high score on this ADHD test.
Additional Information and Note on Validity of this ADHD Test
The Structured Adult ADHD Self-Test (SAAST) was developed by Dr Greg Mulhauser. Like most mental health screening tests you will find on the internet, this test has not been evaluated for validity in terms of sensitivity and specificity via comparison with a Structured Clinical Interview for the DSM (SCID). Therefore, this instrument should not be relied upon in any way as a diagnostic aid but should be used solely as a tool for increasing your own awareness of experiences which might be associated with ADHD.
