Advances in Empirically Based Assessment of Children's Behavioral and Emotional Problems
Stephanie H. McConaughy
Recent revisions of the scoring profiles for the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL), Teacher’s Report Form (TRF), and Youth Self-Report (YSR) represent important advances in empirically based assessment of children’s behavioral and emotional problems. This article reviews research to derive cross-informant syndrome scales for the 1991 profiles of the CBCL, TRF, and YSR, focusing on findings that are particularly relevant for the practice of school psychology. Studies of reliability and validity are summarized, as well as findings on cross-informant agreement, stability of parent ratings, cross-informant prediction, and comparisons of profile scores for children with serious emotional disturbance and learning disabilities.
