Q Local™

Administer and score assessments right on your desktop

Q Local™ Scoring and Reporting Software—Version 3.0

Q Local software enables you to score and report on more than thirty clinical assessments from Pearson. Q Local software is available in desktop and network versions. Test entry methods include taking tests right at the computer, manually entering responses from completed answer sheets, or even scanning answers sheets.

How does it work?

Pearson's Q Local Software is based on a "pay as you go" concept. It allows you to choose the number of administrations and specific reports you actually need, providing you with a flexible and user-friendly solution. Q Local provides for on-screen administration as well as scoring via key entry of responses or scanning of scannable answer documents. Visit the Q Local Scoring and Reporting Software information page for detailed information.

What assessments does Q Local score and report?

The comprehensive list of assessments supported by the Q Local™ Scoring and Reporting Software is found on the left of this page, under 'Related Items'.

Important note to existing Q Local customers

The primary update with Q Local version 3.0 is to support Windows 8 operating system compatibility, in addition to currently supported Windows operating system versions.

If you have a prior version of Q Local 2.x installed on your machine, it is extremely critical that you follow the detailed instructions found on page 4 of the Quick Start Guide.

Note: An existing install requires that you back up your database, followed by uninstalling your current version. There is NO upgrade to version 3.0, as this is a major new version of Q Local that requires significant changes to the database version to support Windows 8.
