Administrator Registration

Registration is essential and free, requiring only an email address. Individual users should only register if they are prepared to accept responsibility for fees. If you are part of an organisation, we recommend using a generic email address for your account. The individual(s) who registers has an administrative account, known as an SDQadmin account. The administrator (or their deputy) should have budgetary and professional responsibility for staff who score or send out assessments on, SDQplus or SDQcohort. The administrator account and password does not give access to scoring or assessment on, SDQplus or SDQcohort - the administrator instead creates UserID(s) for scoring or assessment. To create a new SDQadmin account go to

Contact us if you would need any assistance with creating or using your SDQadmin account or would like to know more about the SDQplus/SDQcohort system.

Creating UserIDs

The administrator generates UserIDs and passwords for staff to create, score or send out assessments on, SDQplus or SDQcohort. Other than requiring a UserID and password, users have much the same experience as before. Please ensure that you have registered and provided UserIDs to your staff. To use SDQplus and SDQcohort you will need to ensure that SDQplus access is set for the user. For assistance with setting up users, either contact us or view this guide.

Scoring / Assessment

Other than requiring a UserID and password to log in, users have much the same experience as before. They score at the usual site. For those using SDQplus or SDQcohort, the user must have SDQplus access set (see previous section) before they can log in with their UserID and password at either or


The administrator has date, time and detailed lists of charges and payments information on SDQ assessments by UserIDs. The administrator is also able to access, alter, re-score, audit and assessments created by their UserIDs. They can also export data from individual assessments. Please log in to the administration site on with your AdminID and password.
