Millon Adolescent Clinical Inventory (MACI) Overview

Unlike many other clinicial instruments developed for adults and adapted for adolescents, the MACI assessment was specifically created to address the unique concerns, pressures and situations facing teens. Brief and easy to administer, the MACI can assist practitioners in constructing treatment plans customized to individual needs and help them guide troubled youth toward healthier, more authentic lives. 

The MACI Revision aims to increase relevance to contemporary practice, increase effectiveness of scales, and update the language used throughout the test. The upcoming revision will maintain a quick administration time of 30 minutes or less to complete and obtain the maximum amount of information with a minimal amount of the test-taker's effort--a feature that mental health professionals have found especially helpful in working with adolescents.

Compensation for Participation

As an examiner participating in the MACI Research Project, you will be compensated for your participation as follows:

  • For each examinee who completes the experimental items in the MACI Research Edition, you can select to receive either one MACI Interpretive Report credit for future use or $35.00 payable by check.
  • For every completed Clinician Rating Form, you can select to receive either one MACI Interpretive Report credit for future use or $35.00 payable by check.
Since the MACI is administered during the normal part of your assessment process and requires minimal extra effort, Pearson will not compensate the examinee.

Please note:
You are allowed to select only one type of payment (cash or report credit) for all the examinees you test throughout the entirety of the MACI Research Project. For example, if you select report credits, payment for all examinees tested will be in the form of MACI report credits only. Upon opting-in for the first time, specific information will be requested for payment purposes. You can read more about this in the FAQs document available in the Q-global Resource Library under the Project Documents section in the column on the right or in the file attachment below.
