The Sex Knowledge and Attitudes Test – Adolescents assesses knowledge, attitudes, and sexual behaviors and is appropriate for ages 12 to 18. The SKAT-A has been used in a variety of studies including clinical populations, the general population, and even with young adults in college settings, all producing excellent psychometric properties. Each year we receive hundreds of requests for the SKAT-A to support research in psychological, educational, and clinical settings. The SKAT-A is currently available in English and four other languages including Farsi (Iran), Malay (Indonesia), Spanish, and Kannada (India). Each version of the SKAT-A is copyrighted and must be used with permission.
