Criminal psychological evaluation format

What is the written-format of a psychological evaluation? Specifically one to be used in a major felony case. My story is being told entirely through transcripts and interviews and things, so how would the evaluation(s) be put down on paper? Is there a specific form used? If so, what information goes on it?

If you need more details, one of two twins has committed murder in the state of New York. Both are suspects. Before the twin that actually committed the crime confesses, I want a psych. evaluation to be done on both twins, together if possible. (Would that be allowed, legally? My guess is no, but it would be nice for the story.)
