Upgrading to ASQ:SE-2 Online

ASQ Online Logo

ASQ:SE-2 is now available in ASQ Online, and ASQ:SE has been phased out as of January 1, 2017. To continue screening children’s social-emotional development, you’ll need to move to the second edition, ASQ:SE-2.

Upgrading to ASQ:SE-2 has many benefits for you and the children and families you serve. With a new 2 month questionnaire, screening through kindergarten, a new monitoring zone, and new data and cutoffs, ASQ:SE-2 makes it easier than ever to pinpoint behaviors of concern and identify any need for further assessment.

It’s easy to make the switch to ASQ:SE-2. Purchase your ASQ:SE-2 boxes (English or Spanish) and use the information below to make the transition go smoothly.


As of January 1, 2017, the first edition of ASQ:SE is no longer available in the ASQ Online system. Although all ASQ:SE data will remain in the ASQ Online system for review and reporting, programs will no longer be able to enter ASQ:SE results. To continue screening children, you’ll need to move to the second edition, ASQ:SE-2.

The steps for transitioning are simple. First, to access ASQ:SE-2 Questionnaires in ASQ Online, you’ll need an ASQ:SE-2 keycode, which comes with your purchase of ASQ:SE-2.  You will need an ASQ:SE-2 box for every program within your account. Purchase ASQ:SE-2 in English and/or ASQ:SE-2 in Spanish.

Once you’ve entered your ASQ:SE-2 keycode, you’ll make updates for the new edition. If your program uses ASQ Online screening preferences, task preferences, program documents, and/or program packets, these will have to be updated for the ASQ:SE-2 Questionnaires. If your program uses Family Access, you will have to create a Family Access page for ASQ:SE-2. Detailed instructions on how to make these changes are available here.

Programs that did not make the transition to ASQ:SE-2 by January 1, 2017 may still do so now.

For a complete list of what will and will not change in ASQ Online starting January 1, 2017, see this chart.

How to Transition

ASQ:SE Questionnaires

ASQ:SE questionnaires are no longer available for completion in ASQ Online as of January 1, 2017.

If you wish to continue using an Ages & Stages Questionnaires® social-emotional screener, you will have to purchase ASQ:SE-2. ASQ:SE completed screenings and completed information summary sheets will remain in ASQ Online for review and printing.

Learn more about ASQ:SE-2 here.

Family Access

Updating the ASQ Online Family Access page(s) from ASQ:SE to ASQ:SE-2 is very easy. Starting January 1, 2017, all ASQ:SE Family Access pages are disabled. If you did not transition to ASQ:SE-2 questionnaires by the cutoff date, caregivers will see the following message when clicking on the ASQ:SE URL: “We’re sorry. The Ages & Stages Questionnaires screening program is not accepting new screenings at this time.” 

To create your ASQ:SE-2 Family Access page, we recommend using your existing ASQ:SE Family Access page as a template. Replace any references to ASQ:SE with ASQ:SE-2 and, when you are ready to start screening with ASQ:SE-2, click “Use ASQ:SE URL” to replace ASQ:SE with the new ASQ:SE-2 questionnaire. You have the option of using a new ASQ:SE-2 URL, however you will need to ensure that the new URL is incorporated into your marketing materials and website, and shared with your families and caregivers.

Screening Preferences

As of January 1, 2017, the screening preferences that you created for ASQ:SE questionnaires no longer appear. Once you create your ASQ:SE-2 screening preferences, ASQ:SE-2 screening tasks will start to generate.

Task Preferences

As of January 1, 2017, the task preferences that you created for ASQ:SE questionnaires no longer appear. Once you create your ASQ:SE-2 task preferences, ASQ:SE-2 follow-up tasks will start to generate.

System Packets

As of January 1, 2017, the only ASQ:SE system packets that will remain in ASQ Online are the ASQ:SE Questionnaire and Completed ASQ:SE & Information Summary packets. These packets will be available so you can continue to print completed ASQ:SE questionnaires and information summary sheets.

Any ASQ:SE personal or program packets created in a program will remain in the system. Any ASQ:SE system documents that are part of either packet will not print with the packet. You will be able to edit/update your ASQ:SE personal and/or program packets at any time to work with the new ASQ:SE-2 packets.

    What ASQ Users are Saying

    “What I love about the ASQ is that it allows our staff to catch delays quickly and allows us to get our clients the early intervention programs that they sometimes need. In many cases [ASQ] helps us catch children up before they start kindergarten, therefore providing children with the start that they deserve.
