Is the raads-r test accurate

The RAADS-R (Ritvo Autism Asperger Diagnostic Scale-Revised) test is considered to be accurate in discriminating between subjects with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and those without a DSM-IV-TR diagnosis or with another DSM-IV-TR diagnosis. The test has a sensitivity of 97%, specificity of 100%, test-retest reliability of 0.987, and overall accuracy of 98.5% [4]. However, it is important to note that the RAADS-R test is intended to be administered by a professional in a clinical setting [2]. The test creators emphasize that the overall score is more accurate than any of the subscale scores alone, but the subscales can still be informative if you’re curious [2].
