Conners Comprehensive Behaviour Rating Scales™ (Conners CBRS®)

Assesses behaviour, emotions, and academic problems in children and adolescents.

The Conners Comprehensive Behaviour Rating Scales (Conners CBRS) is designed to provide a complete overview of child and adolescent concerns and disorders. The Conners CBRS can be used to assess a wide spectrum of behaviors, emotions, academic, and social problems. The Conners CBRS is aligned to the DSM-5™.


The Conners CBRS is a multi-informant tool composed of three rating forms: one completed by the teacher, one by the parent or caregiver, and one by the individual being evaluated(if they are over the age of 8).

The CBRS consists of the following scales:

Content Scales:

  • Emotional Distress

  • Academic Difficulties

  • Defiant/Aggressive Behaviours

  • Hyperactivity/Impulsivity

  • Social Problems
