MnCHOICES Assessment Content

The MnCHOICES assessment uses a person-centered approach in guiding trained assessors to gather information to identify the strengths, preferences and needs of the individual.

DHS worked closely with many people to create the assessment, including:

  • • Advocates
  • • Individuals who receive services and their families
  • • Lead agencies
  • • Other stakeholders
  • • Providers
  • Their participation was valuable; and the assessment reflects their feedback and ideas.

    The MnCHOICES assessment content is provided on the CountyLink website, a ready resource for Minnesota lead agency staff to access reference material. These documents include the text and all of the questions on the MnCHOICES assessment. The questions are listed in the same order as in the MnCHOICES assessment application. Not all questions will be asked of each individual. The certified assessor will ask the questions relevant to each individual being assessed.
