The all new Conners Comprehensive Behavior 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 now 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.
The age range suitable for this assessment is between 6-18 years for parent and teacher forms and between 8-18 years for self-report forms.

The Conners Comprehensive Behavior Rating Scales is scored using a PC based software program with responses entered into the program from completed repsonse booklets. Test administration is completed on paper-and-pencil Response Booklets with separate Parent Rating Scales (Conners CBRS-P), the teacher rating scales (Conners CBRS-T) and the self-report rating scales (Conners CBRS-SR) available. Assessment Reports and Progress Reports are also available to help gather and record information and facilitate discussion.
In addition the Conners Comprehensive Behavior Rating Scales also includes an auxiliary scale: the Conners Comprehensive Behavior Rating Scales Clinical Index, CBRS (CI). The CBRS Clinical Index (CI) form may be administered and hand scored using a Quikscore form. The Conners CBRS Clinical Index forms are available in parents, teachers and self-reports versions. The Clinical Index contains 25 items and is used to determine whether a child is likely to have a clinical diagnosis. The index is helpful when monitoring treatment over a period of time and the client is required to fill out the form multiple times. This index is included in the Conners CBRS, but can also be purchased separately.
