A system of assessing social competence based on empirical analysis of a sample of non-referred subjects was applied to a group of subjects referred for social skills training. Scores obtained with the system discriminated between the referred and non-referred subjects. Data also supported the use of the system to evaluate changes which occurred during the course of the training program. However, this finding was not uniform across all subjects. Discussion centres on the variables which might account for this lack of uniformity and on further applications for the system as a research and therapy tool.
