The ASEBA school-age forms allow you to obtain information about problematic behavior in school-age children from parents, teachers, and, in the case of older children, the youths themselves. Each of the three forms provides raw scores, T scores, and percentiles. All norms are based on a U.S. national sample, and all forms have parallel Internalizing, Externalizing, and Total Problems scales.

Available in Spanish

CBCL School-Age Scoring Forms are available in Latino Spanish. In addition, the CBCL School-Age Scoring Module with Multicultural Options and 2007 Scales displays problem-scale profiles and cross-informant bar graphs in relation to multicultural (including U.S.) norms. 

School-Age Scoring Module

ASEBA software makes it easy to manage data obtained with ASEBA forms by creating easy-to-read profiles of normed scale scores and exportable narrative reports. Each module displays cross-informant comparisons of data from up to 10 forms, including item ratings, correlations between informants, and bar graphs of scale scores. Multicultural options are available.

Multicultural Family Assessment Module (MFAM) graphs comparisons across multiple informants

  • Easy-to-read bar graphs display scores on seven syndromes and four DSM-oriented scales that have counterparts for ages 6–18 years and 18–59 years. Each bar is standardized for the age and gender of the person being assessed, the type of informant, and user-selected multicultural norms.
  • MFAM bar graphs help parents understand variations among views of their child's and their own problems. Providing MFAM results to parents can strengthen therapeutic alliances and can document the progress and outcomes of interventions.
