North Carolina Family Assessment Scale

The North Carolina Family Assessment Scale (NCFAS) measures family functioning from the perspective of the worker most involved with the family. It requires professional to make a clear decision on whether action should be taken. It does this by getting professionals to grade a family from -3 to +2 across a range of areas of family functioning, where the definition for a minus score means that there is an ethical, moral or legal reason for intervening.
