Child and Adolescent Behavior Rating Scale

Title

Child and Adolescent Behavior Rating Scale

Description

A subset of items from the Child Behavior Rating Scale, used in Project Competence, was included in Waves 2 and 3 to obtain an interviewer rating of the behavior of all subjects in Cohorts 3 to 15 in Wave 2 and Cohorts 0 to 15 in Wave 3. The following behaviors are rated on a 5-point scale: rapport with the research assistant(s), degree of cooperation with the research assistant(s), duration of attention span, level of activity, talkativeness, and affective quality of the subject's response to the primary caregiver.

WAVE 2: The Child and Adolescent Behavior Rating Scale (PDF 3.5MB) obtained an interviewer rating of the behavior of subjects. It recorded the amount of time the interviewer spent observing the subject and whether this observation took place only during the interview with the subject or during the interview and at other times during the appointment. The subject was also rated on various behaviors. It was completed by interviewers for Cohorts 3 to 15.

WAVE 3: The Child and Adolescent Behavior Rating Scale (PDF 2.7MB) obtained an interviewer rating of the behavior of subjects. It recorded the amount of time the interviewer spent observing the subject and whether this observation took place only during the interview with the subject or during the interview and at other times during the appointment. The subject was also rated on various behaviors. It was completed by interviewers for Cohorts 0 to 12.
