ABSTRACT: An illustrative selection of measures appropriate for use in evaluation of cognitive-behavioral interventions designed to improve adjustment is reviewed in terms of specifying level and impact level assessments. Behavioral observations, performance on impersonal and interpersonal problem-solving tasks, performance on social cognitive tasks, self-report measures,and procedures for sampling private speech are considered as specifying level assessments.Impact level assessments include teacher/parent ratings, sociometrics, archival data,and normative comparisons. The need to consider factors operative within the school situation is also discussed.
