For each question, the respondent is asked to indicate the degree to which a statement describes the child’s behavior. Response options include “not at all”, “just a little”, “pretty much”, and “very much”. For any question they do not know the answer to, respondents are asked to write “DK” for “don’t know”. The behavioral rating scale takes 5–10 minutes to complete and is designed for use with children ages 5 and up. The scores of the scale have been shown to be reliable and valid across multiple different study samples.
