Comprehensive assessment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms includes parent and teacher questionnaires. The ADHD Rating Scale-5 was developed to incorporate changes for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (5th ed.; DSM-5; American Psychiatric Association, 2013). This study examined the fit of a correlated, 2-factor structure of ADHD (i.e., DSM-5 conceptual model) and alternative models; determined whether ADHD symptom ratings varied across teacher…

Impact of Child and Informant Gender on Parent and Teacher Ratings of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

Results suggest that informant gender may play a clinically meaningful role in assessing ADHD in children and adolescents, which is consistent with the developmental literature addressing gender stereotypes in children.

ADHD Parent and Teacher Symptom Ratings: Differential Item Functioning across Gender, Age, Race, and Ethnicity

Examination of possible measurement variance across child demographic characteristics at the item level in two large national samples of ADHD symptoms found all but six ADHD symptom items showed DIF across child age, gender, race, and ethnicity with more items showing DIF for age than for gender,Race, or ethnicity.

Psychometric properties in 2-year-old children were generally comparable to those in older children, with similar factor structure, good reliability and validity, and good though somewhat lower discrimination, particularly for verbal symptoms.

Structure of ADHD/ODD Symptoms in Spanish Preschool Children: Dangers of Confirmatory Factor Analysis for Evaluation of Rating Scales

Three-factor exploratory CFA model provided an acceptable-fit with moderate to substantial symptom-factor loadings, but found a large number of the symptoms failed to show convergent and discriminant validity.

Evaluation of the ADHD Rating Scale in Youth with Autism

Expected parent prevalence rates, relationships with age and externalizing behaviors were observed, but confirmatory factor analyses revealed unsatisfactory fits for one-, two-, three-factor models, and implications of screening ADHD in youth with ASD using current diagnostic criteria are discussed.

Parent-teacher agreement on ADHD symptoms across development.

While parent and teacher ratings of ADHD behaviors are only weakly to moderately correlated, each reporter provides unique and valid clinical information as it relates to ADHD symptom presentation.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Behavioral Report from Professors and Self-Report from University Students

In this article, we analyze the internal consistency of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders–5th ed. (DSM–5) diagnostic criteria for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder

Measurement Invariance of the ADHD Rating Scale–IV Home and School Versions Across Age, Gender, Clinical Status, and Informant

Investigation of the measurement invariance across age, gender, clinical status, and informant of the Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder Rating Scale–IV (ADHD-RS-IV) Home and School versions found it is a reliable instrument given its strong invariance.

General and specific attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder factors of children 4 to 6 years of age: An exploratory structural equation modeling approach to assessing symptom multidimensionality.

The bifactor model provided a solution to previously encountered inconsistencies in the factorial models of ADHD in young children, but the low reliability of the specific factors casts doubt on the utility of the subscales for ADHD measurement.



Parent Ratings of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder Symptoms: Factor Structure and Normative Data

Changes in the diagnostic criteria for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have necessitated the creation of new measures for clinical assessment. The factor structure of a parent rating

Assessing ADHD symptomatic behaviors and functional impairment in school settings: impact of student and teacher characteristics.

Students' age, gender, racial, and special education status were significant predictors of symptom count and level of symptom-related impairment and the combination of symptom and impairment ratings yielded the prevalence rate most consistent with prior epidemiological findings.

It is argued that the main focus of assessment should be on target behavior selection, contextual factors, functional analyses, treatment planning, and outcome monitoring.

Factor Structure and Criterion Validity of Secondary School Teacher Ratings of ADHD and ODD

A confirmatory factor analysis supported the convergent and divergent validity of a model with separate but correlated factors for inattention, impulsivity–hyperactivity, and defiant behavior, and the applicability of the DSM-IV conceptualization of these disorders to adolescents.

Evidence for a General ADHD Factor from a Longitudinal General School Population Study

Hierarchical models with a general ADHD factor and two or three specific factors best accounted for parent and teacher reports of symptoms for both boys and girls and at two time points separated by a 12-month interval are tested.

Teacher ratings of DSM-III-R symptoms for the disruptive behavior disorders.

Teacher ratings obtained for 931 boys in regular classrooms in grades K through 8 from around North America revealed that several hallmark symptoms of ADHD had very poor predictive power, whereas combinations of symptoms from the two ADHD factors had good predictive power.

Innovations in Assessing ADHD: Development, Psychometric Properties, and Factor Structure of the ADHD Symptoms Rating Scale (ADHD-SRS)

This research involved the development of a behavior rating scale designed to measure ADHD and the investigation of the scale's psychometric properties and factor structure. This scale, the ADHD

Obtained data from parents and teachers for a large sample of urban school children aged 6 to 12 years on the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) Rating Scale, and collected criterion

A behavioral assessment scale for attention deficit disorder in brazilian children based on DSM-IIIR criteria

A teacher scale based on DSM-III-R diagnostic criteria for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) was developed for the behavioral assessment of children in Brazil, and the factor structure of the scale was found to be stable.

The Predictive Validity of Parent and Teacher Reports of ADHD Symptoms

The objectives were to evaluate the ability of the Inattention and Hyperactivity–Impulsivity factors of the ADHD Rating Scale-IV to differentiate children with ADHD from a control group and to
