The Florida Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory OCD Screening Test.

  • This screening test is designed as a guide to find out whether you show symptoms similar to those of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
  • A high score on this questionnaire does not mean you have OCD. Only a trained healthcare professional can make this diagnosis.
  • This test has 20 questions in Part A and 5 questions in Part B and should take about 5 minutes.
  • It was developed by Professor Wayne Goodman of the University of Florida.
  • To show your score, a temporary cookie needs to be set on your machine. No personal information will be recorded, and the cookie will be deleted.

Part A. Please select "YES" or "NO" for each of the following questions based on your experiences in the past month.

Unpleasant thoughts or images that repeatedly enter your mind:

Question 1

Do you have concerns with contamination (dirt, germs, chemicals, radiation) or getting a serious illness such as AIDS?

Question 2

Are you overconcerned with keeping objects (clothing, shopping, tools) in perfect order, or arranged exactly?

Question 3

Do you have mental images of death or other horrible events?

Question 4

Do you have personally unacceptable religious or sexual thoughts?
