The Conners Comprehensive Behaviour Rating Scales (Conners CBRS) is an instrument designed to provide a complete overview of child and adolescent disorders and concerns. Those working in the field of child and youth psychology may use the Conners CBRS to assess a wide spectrum of behaviours, emotions and academic problems in today's youth.

The Conners CBRS includes the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders: Fourth Edition (DSM-IV-TR) symptom scales, empirical and rational scales, as well as other clinical indicators and critical and impairment items.

Conners CBRS DSM-5 Scoring Update

The Conners CBRS has been updated to provide a new scoring option for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) Symptom Scales.

The Conners CBRS now has the following two scoring options for the MHS Online Assessment Center and the MHS Scoring Software:

  1. DSM-IV-TR The DSM Symptom Scale is scored based on diagnostic criteria in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Text Revision (DSM-IV-TR).
  2. DSM-5: The DSM Symptom Scale is scored based on diagnostic criteria in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5).

Scoring Software users can download the update by clicking on “Check for Updates” under the Help menu within the Scoring Software. The MHS Online Assessment Center system has been updated automatically. After the update has been installed, users will have the option to choose to score with the DSM-IV-TR or DSM-5 criteria.

Reports

Assessment Reports provide detailed information about scores from a single administration, presented both numerically and graphically. An individual's scores are compared to those in the normative sample and elevations at the scale and subscale level are indicated.
Progress Reports compare the results of two to four administrations for the same individual to measure changes over time. These reports are ideal to use when monitoring treatment and intervention effectiveness.
Comparative Reports combine the results of different raters to provide an overview of an individual's scores from a multi-rater perspective. This highlights potentially important inter-rater differences in scores.
