Childhood Asthma Control Test*

The Childhood Asthma Control Test* is a way to help your child's healthcare provider determine if your child's asthma symptoms are well controlled. Share the results with your child's healthcare provider.

How to take the Childhood Asthma Control Test*

Step 1: Let your child respond to the first four questions (1 to 4). If your child needs help reading or understanding the question, you may help, but let your child select the response. For each question, make sure your child considers all four possible answers before choosing the best one for him or her.
Step 2: Complete the remaining three questions (5 to 7) on your own and without letting your child’s response influence your answers. There are no right or wrong answers. For each question, make sure you consider all six possible answers before choosing the best one.
Step 3: Complete the test by clicking 'SUBMIT.'
Step 4: Take the COMPLETED test to your child’s healthcare provider to talk about your child’s total score.

Answers to these questions are not saved on asthma.com. Only you will have access to your answers. If you wish, you can print the test and fill it out along with your child.

The Childhood Asthma Control Test* is designed for children 4 to 11 years old. If your child with asthma is 12 years or older, or if you are an adult with asthma, take the Asthma Control Test™.
