SOCRATES Score Changes Over Time: Alcohol Recognition
1 0 0%
O ve ra ll C ha ng e
Figure 21 displays the proportion of cases whose SOCRATES alcohol form recognition scale scores increased between each assessment interval. The greatest proportion of improved cases occurred between the first and second assessment intervals. These data indicate that changes in recognition measured by the SOCRATES alcohol form were most likely to occur very early in participants’ work with SALs and that this change was significant.

Taking Steps Scale
Figure 22 displays the median taking steps scale scores with the interquartile range from the SOCRATES alcohol form. There was a trend of increasing scores for most cases, and increases in scores were most apparent at the 25th percentile between assessment times one and two. A Friedman’s Test was conducted to test the hypothesis that program participants will increasingly initiate and maintain actions aimed toward changing their alcohol use. Referring to Table 12 (Page 50) , the trend of increasing taking steps scale scores from the SOCRATES alcohol form across all three assessment intervals was statistically significant. Step down analysis (Stevens, 1996) using a series of three Wilcoxon-Signed Rank Tests was conducted with the result that SOCRATES taking steps scale scores did not increase significantly between any assessment intervals.
