Product Details

Brief, universal screening system for measuring behavioral and emotional strengths and weaknesses in children and adolescents.

Assessing the behavioral and emotional functioning of children and adolescents can be an effective tool in promoting student success. Academic problems, along with problems associated with developing and maintaining positive relationships with others, can be the result of underlying behavioral and emotional deficits that, when caught early, can be corrected before negatively affecting a child or adolescent.

The BASC-3 Behavioral and Emotional Screening System offers a reliable, quick, and systematic way to determine behavioral and emotional strengths and weaknesses of children and adolescents in preschool through high school. This comprehensive screening system consists of brief forms that can be completed by teachers, parents, or students, providing one of the most comprehensive and efficient tools available today.

Using this tool

The BASC-3 Behavioral and Emotional Screening System is designed for use by schools, mental health clinics, pediatric clinics, communities, and researchers to screen for a variety of behavioral and emotional disorders that can lead to adjustment problems.

The system includes three forms, which can be used individually or in any combination:

  • Teacher form with two levels: Preschool (for ages 3 through 5) and Child/Adolescent (for Grades K through 12)
  • Student self-report form with one level: Child/Adolescent (for Grades 3 through 12)
  • Parent form with two levels: Preschool (for ages 3 through 5) and Child/Adolescent (for Grades K through 12)

Each form ranges from 25 to 30 items, requires no formal training for the raters, and is easy to complete, taking only 5-10 minutes of administration time.

Features and Benefits

The BASC-3 Behavioral and Emotional Screening System offers a number of valuable features, including:

  • Assessment of a wide array of behaviors that represent both behavioral problems and strengths.
  • Forms that can be completed in approximately five minutes or less, without the need for specialized training.
  • Spanish-language versions of the parent and student self-report forms.
  • A single Total Score on the report that is a reliable and accurate predictor of a broad range of behavioral, emotional and academic problems
  • Validity indexes that identify responses that may be overly negative or inconsistent.

Development

The BASC-3 Behavioral and Emotional Screening System has been normed on a representative sample that closely matches recent U.S. Census population characteristics. T scores and percentiles are available for the general population.
