How is the TCARE screening scored to determine if my caregiver is eligible for a TCARE assessment and related step three services?

(1) The TCARE screening measures are scored with a number value of one through six for the measure on identity discrepancy or one through five for the remaining measures based upon the caregiver's responses. Ranges for each measure determine whether the measure score is high, medium, or low. One high or three medium scores from the table in this subsection, except for the uplifts measure, will make a caregiver eligible for a TCARE assessment and step three services as described in WAC 388-106-1915 (3)(a)(ii). The following table indicates the score ranges for each measure:
 
High
Medium
Low
Identity discrepancy
22-36
14-21
6-13
Relationship burden
13-25
8-12
5-7
Objective burden
24-30
18-23
6-17
Stress burden
17-25
12-16
5-11
Uplifts
19-30
13-18
6-12
Depression-CESD
26-40
19-25
10-18
(2) The scale used to score the responses within the identity discrepancy measure is:
(a) Strongly disagree = one;
(b) Disagree = two;
(c) Disagree a little = three;
(d) Agree a little = four;
(e) Agree = five; and
(f) Agree strongly = six.
(3) The scale used to score the responses to the relationship, objective, stress, and uplift measures are:
(a) Not at all = one;
(b) A little = two;
(c) Moderately = three;
(d) A lot = four; and
(e) A great deal = five.
(4) The scale used to score the responses within the depression measures in WAC 388-106-1931 (5)(a), (b), (c), (d), (f), (g), (i) and (j) are:
(a) Rarely or none of the time (less than one day in the last week) = one;
(b) Some or a little of the time (one to two days in the last week) = two;
(c) Occasionally or a moderate amount of time (three to four days in the last week) = three; and
(d) All of the time (five to seven days in the last week) = four.
(5) The scale used to score the responses within the depression measures in WAC 388-106-1931 (5)(e) and (h) are:
(a) Rarely or none of the time (less than one day in the last week) = four;
(b) Some or a little of the time (one to two days in the last week) = three;
(c) Occasionally or a moderate amount of time (three to four days in the last week) = two; and
(d) All of the time (five to seven days in the last week) = one.
