||Formerly known as: Child Behavior Checklist (Achenbach) ASEBA School-Age- 6-18 – was revised in 2001. It is designed to be self-administered by respondents who have at least fifth grade reading skills. It is desirable to have multiple informants independently complete separate forms describing the child’s behavior. An assessment can quickly and effectively assess diverse aspects of adaptive and maladaptive functioning.
- Child Behavior Checklist for Ages 6-18 – this form contains a list of behavioral problems and competencies, which are rated by parents or parent surrogates. A three-point scale is used to rate items and separate scales within each age group have been developed to assess such factors as Schizoid or Anxious, Depressed, Uncommunicative, Obsessive-Compulsive, Somatic Complaints, Social Withdrawal, Hyperactive, Aggressive, Delinquent, Social Withdrawal, Sex Problems, etc. ( CBCL Checklist-BLUE form used for girls and boys; CBCL Profile – Boys – BLUE and Girls – WHITE)
- Teacher’s Report Form (TRF) – 6 – 18 YEARS – obtains teachers’ ratings of many of the problems rated by parents on the CBCL plus additional items appropriate for teachers. The profile includes scales for academic performance, 4 adaptive characteristics, 8 cross-informant syndromes, Internalizing, Externalizing and total problem scales. ( TRF Checklist- GREEN form used for girls and boys; TRF Profile – Boys – TAN and Girls – BEIGE)
- Youth Self-Report (YSR) – 11 – 18 YEARS – can be filled out by youths having fifth grade reading skills or administered orally. It has most of the same competence and problems items in the CBCL. The profile for scoring the YSR includes 2 competence scales, total competence, 8 cross-informant syndromes, Internalizing, Externalizing and total problem scales. ( YSR Checklist- TAN form used for girls and boys; YSR Profile – Boys and Girls – TAN [1 side boys/1 side girls] )
- DSM-Oriented Scales – Scales were constructed for the following 6 DSM-oriented categories: Affective Problems, Anxiety Problems, Somatic Problems, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Problems, Oppositional Defiant Problems, and Conduct Problems.The DSM-oriented scales can also be scored by hand. The DSM-oriented scales serve as supplements to the empirically based scales for users who wish to view item scores in relation to DSM categories as well as in relation to empirically based syndromes.
