AQ-10 Adult Online Autism Test Questionnaire & PDF

Autism Spectrum Quotient AQ-10 Adult

The AQ-10 Adult Autism Spectrum Quotient (AQ) test is a self-administered questionnaire used to measure autistic traits in the adults. The AQ-10 is a diagnostic tool used to test an individual’s level of functioning in daily life activities. Designed by Carrie Allison, Bonnie Auyeung & Simon Baron-Cohen, this test is commonly used to diagnose autism spectrum disorder (ASD) for adults (age 16+) who do not suffer from a cognitive impairment. The items on the AQ-10 ask about an individual’s current level of functioning in various areas of daily life, including communication, social skills, and repetitive behaviours.

The AQ-10 is a 10-item self-report measure that takes 5-10 minutes to complete giving you four choices for each question such as

● Definitely agree
● Slightly agree
● Slightly disagree
● Definitely disagree

It makes no difference to your score whether you choose mildly or strongly, so simply take the statements as a simple decision of ‘agree’ or ‘disagree.


● The scoring range is between zero to ten.
● You might be autistic if your score is greater than 6, and vice versa.
● 80% of people designated Asperger’s syndrome score 6 or higher

The AQ-10 can only be taken as a self-scoring exam.
