I'm hoping someone can help with a query about the grades/numbers for Aspergers. My adult son did a test some years ago set by an American University on the Internet. Back then there was very little mention of Aspergers over here. His score was 180 and it stated he was 'likely an Aspie' - I have no idea what the score means regarding what is the top and bottom number eg is the highest score 200? Or 500? Does anyone know?
It seems scores are measured differently now than they were when my son did his test.

Looking forward to a reply or two. thanks :?

Hi, welcome.

You'll be talking about this quiz, I think?

You are correct, I just remember it saying he was 180 but at the time didn't know how to copy and paste things very well, but I did manage to save his graph. I just didn't understand what the 180 meant. Thanks for your reply.

An Aspie Quiz score of 180 is within the quiz parameters of being an "Aspie" or likely to be diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome or Autism Spectrum Disorder if your son pursued a diagnostic assessment.

Thank you AspieUtah, I wanted him to go to his GP and get a diagnosis but he didn't want to. He said he didn't want another 'label'.

The only label would be in his medical records unless he chose to tell others. But, I respect anyone who chooses to remain undiagnosed or self-identified.
