A Dimensional Approach to Behavior Disorder: The Revised Behavior Problem Checklist

pp. 244—249

ABSTRACT: The Behavior Problem Rating Scale has been used for 15 years in schools and other applied settings for purposes of screening and assessment, and to provide epidemiological data. More than 100 published studies have used the instrument in various ways. However, the initial item pool was limited in scope, resulting in three factor analytically derived scales with very few items. This limited the reliability of these scales. This paper describes some aspects of the development of the Revised Behavior Problem Checklist. The revised scale has an augmented item pool (89 items) and factor analysis reveals five major and two minor scales. Reliability intercorrelations among scales and validity data are reported.
