Conners 4 Manual (Print)
Conners 4 Online Report (each)
Conners 4th Edition (Conners 4™) is the highly anticipated revision of the Conners 3rd Edition (Conners 3®), the world’s leading Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) assessment.
Conners 4 provides a comprehensive assessment of symptoms and impairments associated with ADHD and common co-occurring problems and disorders in children and youth aged 6 to 18 years. The Conners 4 is an inclusive and fair measure that builds on the long history and strengths of the multi-informant Conners Rating Scales. Conners 4 will be an invaluable part of your ADHD assessment battery with updated norms, improved workflows, and new and improved features.
Improved Efficiency and Usability
Now fully digital, Conners 4 helps you gain valuable time with customizable reports, online scoring for better data visualization, easy inventory management, a digital manual, and printable forms.
Increased Accuracy of Assessment
Conners 4 updates allow you to:
- Address critical concerns with Severe Conduct and Self-Harm Critical Items and a Sleep Problems Indicator
- Measure impairments related to ADHD symptoms in the school, social, and family domains
- Evaluate new content areas and common co-occurring problems such as emotional dysregulation, depressed mood, and anxious thoughts
- Apply a dimensional approach with an additional DSM Symptoms Scale – Total ADHD Symptoms
Superior Quantification of Severity
Conners 4 helps you evaluate the severity of symptoms by comparing the child’s results to an ADHD Reference Sample (children/youth already diagnosed with ADHD).
Enhanced Collaboration with Parents
Conners 4 facilitates collaboration with parents using an enhanced Parent Feedback Handout (easy-to-understand explanation and summary of results).
Increased Fairness and Inclusivity
Conners 4 improves fairness and inclusivity with gender-inclusive language, culturally sensitive items, and items and scales that show no evidence of measurement bias regarding gender, race/ethnicity, country of residence, or parental education level.
More Informed Intervention
Conners 4 allows evaluation of a youth’s relative strengths and weaknesses using Within-Profile Comparisons for more informed intervention.
Take the guesswork out of your inventory management with a new way to order Conners 4 uses. You can purchase a general Conners 4 use and apply it across any Conners 4 form while generating reports.

Conners 4 Full-length
Number of items:
- Parent 117
- Teacher 109
- Self-Report 118
This form is the most comprehensive and is recommended for use in initial evaluations and full re-evaluations. This form includes all Conners 4 items and scales.
Conners 4 Short
Number of items:
- Parent 53
- Teacher 49
- Self-Report 51
This form is useful when a rater has limited time, or when the rater will be asked to complete the Conners 4 repeatedly (e.g., monthly assessment of treatment response). This form takes less time to complete than the full-length form but is not as comprehensive because it has fewer scales and fewer items per scale (for both Content and Impairment & Functional Outcome scales).
Conners 4 ADHD Index (AI)
Number of items:
- Parent 12
- Teacher 12
- Self-Report 12
This index can be used as a screener to determine which youth are most likely to require a more comprehensive evaluation. The Conners 4–ADHD Index contains 12 items from the full-length form that best differentiate youth diagnosed with ADHD from youth in the general population.
Single Rater Report
Provides detailed information about scores from a single administration, presented numerically, graphically, and within an interpretive summary. A youth’s scores are compared to those in one or more Normative Samples, and optionally, to an ADHD Reference Sample. Also includes a Within-Profile Comparison of the youth’s results to their own average score. Elevations at both the scale and item level are included. Key results are provided in a one-page overview.
