Griff-it is a software package for recording, scoring and writing reports for the Griffiths Mental Development Scales - Extended and Revised (GMDS-ER).

1.1   How to obtain Griff-it

If this documentation was not distributed as part of the Griff-it installer, please contact Hogrefe Ltd to obtain a copy.

1.2   Installation

After downloading the installer, simply double-click ‘Griff-it installer’ and follow the instructions on screen.


1.3   Requirements

  • Windows XP or newer
  • .NET Framework 3.0 or newer
  • For reports in Microsoft Word format, Word 2003 or newer
  • For data export in Microsoft Excel format, Excel 2003 or newer

Note that Word and Excel must both be properly activated in order to work correctly. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/293151 for more information.

Reports are available in non-proprietary Rich Text Format (RTF) whether or not Word is installed.

A display with resolution of at least 1024x768 is strongly recommended. However, Griff-it has been used successfully on displays as small as 640x480.

1.3.1   .NET Framework

The .NET Framework is a Windows component provided by Microsoft. The necessary version is always present in systems running Windows 7 and later versions. Computers running earlier versions of Windows are also likely to have the requisite Framework version installed via Windows Update.

In some cases, particularly on Windows XP, you may see a message from the installer explaining that the necessary version of the .NET Framework is not installed. Applying all recommended updates from Windows Update (accessible from the Start Menu or by visiting http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/) is likely to rectify this problem. If not, contact support.
