The Burks Behavior Rating Scales, Second Edition (BBRS-2) helps you diagnose and treat children with behavior problems. Administered and scored in minutes, these scales identify the nature and severity of pathological symptoms in children ages 4 to 18 years.
The BBRS-2 includes 100 items, each describing a behavior infrequently observed in nonreferred children. A parent or teacher simply indicates, on a 5-point response scale, how often the behavior is seen in the child being evaluated.
The BBRS-2 is available in two forms: the Parent Form and the Teacher Form. The test questions are the same for both groups, but each group has distinct test norms. Parent and Teacher Profile Sheets used for diagnostic purposes are included on their respective forms. The use of multiple raters in the BBRS-2 helps reduce bias and provides a more comprehensive understanding of the child’s behavior problems.
The BBRS-2 produces seven scale scores:
