FAQ:

Can my partner and I see one another’s answers while I am taking the test?

No. Before you start the assessment, you will each create a separate online profile with a unique login and password. Neither of you can access the other’s information at any time, and we encourage you not to share your login information with your partner in order to preserve the integrity and effectiveness of the questionnaire.


Will I get a copy of my results?

When you and your partner have both completed your individual assessments, a thorough analysis of your relationship - including your scores - will be uploaded to your therapist’s dashboard. Your therapist will then be able to review the analysis with you and discuss any suggested steps for improving your relationship. Please ask your therapist for his or her policy about providing you with a printed copy of these results as it varies among clinicians and practices.


I want to use Relationship Checkup to access my relationship without going to a therapist. Can I do this?

No. The Relationship Checkup is a tool designed for use by clinicians in a therapeutic setting with couples.
