The 111-item child form and the 110-item adolescent form cover a full range of psychopathology, including externalizing, internalizing, and critical pathology disorders.

  • Consistently excellent composite scale reliabilities.
  • Content validity based on DSM-IV and mapping of specific items to corresponding DSM-IV criteria.
  • Factorially and logically derived scales reflect major dimensions of psychopathology.
  • Validity studies utilizing inpatient and outpatient clinical groups.
  • Any adult who has known the child for four weeks may serve as a rater.
  • Same form is used for parent and teacher raters, with separate norms provided for each.
