The Combined Gender Identity and Transsexuality Inventory (COGIATI) is an online test for male-to-female transsexuality propensity. It remains controversial.

Controversy

Jennifer Diane Reitz created the COGIATI (Combined Gender Identity And Transsexuality Inventory), a prototype test for people who think they might qualify as pre-op, pre-transitional male-to-female transsexuals, but feel uncertain. She claims on her transsexuality website that some medical professionals have adopted her prototype test instead of developing a better version, and she expresses mixed feelings about this. She cautions that the COGIATI has many flaws and is not a reliable test for diagnosing transsexualism/gender identity disorder.[1]

Amongst known flaws are the lack of criteria for female-to-male transsexual people, and using stereotyped gender role and expression behavior when assessing the person taking the test. It also presumes that transition is the only option for persons whom score enough points for a "diagnosis" of "female".
