Conner’s Teacher’s Rating Scale-Revised(short form) (CTRS-R(S))
o Introduction of the scale
An instrument that uses observer ratings and self-report ratings to help assess attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and evaluate problem behavior in children and adolescents.
Various CRS-R versions offer flexible administration options while also providing the ability to collect varying perspectives on a child’s behavior from parents, teachers, caregivers, and the child or adolescent.
There are three versions—parent, teacher and adolescent self-report—all of which also have a short and long form available. In addition, there are three screening tools that offer the option of administering a 12-item ADHD Index or the 18-item DSM-IV® Symptom Checklist, or both. These instruments also offer versions for parents, teachers, and adolescents.
o How to Use This Test
The CRS-R instruments are used for routine screenings in schools, mental health clinics, residential treatment centers, pediatric offices, juvenile detention facilities, child protective agencies, and outpatient settings. The test can help:
Measure hyperactivity in children and adolescents through routine screening
Provide a perspective of the child’s behavior from those who interact with the child on a daily basis
Establish a base point prior to beginning therapy and monitor treatment effectiveness and changes over time
Provide valuable structured and normed information to further support conclusions, diagnoses, and treatment decisions when the parent, teacher, and self-report scales are combined
o Key Features
Based on the original Conners’ Rating Scales, the CRS-R has many advantages, including:
• A large normative database to help support the instrument’s reliability and validity
• Multidimensional scales that help assess ADHD and comorbid disorders with links to DSM-IV diagnostic categories
• Teacher, parent, and self-report scales in long and short formats
• Applicability to managed care situations through the quantification and measurement of a variety of behavior problems
The short QuikScore™ form for teachers contains 28 items. The scale should be used when time is of the essence and when multiple administrations over time are desired. Scales include:
• Cognitive Problems/Inattention
• ADHD Index
• When the profile forms are completed, an easy-to-interpret graphical display of the results is produced to help present results to parents, teachers, or other relevant parties.
• Feedback forms enable the practitioner to summarize the scores for the child or adolescent in broad terms. Intervention suggestions and advice are also included.
• Norms were based on a sample of 8000+ children and adolescents, males and females ages 3 to 17. Minority group samples were represented. Standardized data were based on the means and standard deviations for groups of children with ADHD and children without psychological problems.
