The Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) School Age 6-18 enables practitioners to efficiently obtain standardised ratings and descriptive details of children's functioning as seen by parents (using the CBCL 6-18) and teachers (using the TRF 6-18).
The Youth Self Report (YSR) 11-18 Form also obtains the youth's view of their own functioning.
The ASEBA School Age Handscoring Profiles provide an easy way to see the competencies and problems reported for the child, by displaying each item and scale score on the profile, displayed in a graph format.
For the CBCL 6-18 and TRF 6-18, there are separate profiles for boys and girls, that display gender-specific norms for ages 6-11 and 12-18 (contents of the scales remain the same for both genders and age groups).
For the YSR 11-18, the norms for both genders are displayed on the same profile form.
The CBCL 6-18 Manual provides instructions on how to transfer data from the Forms to the Profiles.
The YSR Handscoring Profiles are set out and scored in the same way as the CBCL Profile, but differ in the following ways:
- The YSR is not scored in terms of School scale
- The youth's self-ratings of academic achievement are averaged, for a single item that is added to the Activities and Social scale scores
