The AARS is a 41-item psychometrically sound instrument that can help to identify adolescents who are at risk for diagnoses of conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

Evaluates the intensity and frequency of anger expression in adolescents

  • Respondents indicate which behaviors they exhibit when angered and how often each behavior typically occurs.
  • Scores are reported for Total Anger and for three subscales measuring aspects of the adolescent’s typical anger response pattern: Instrumental Anger, Reactive Anger, and Anger Control.
  • Validated with students in two age groups: middle school (Grades 6-8) and high school (Grades 9-12). Five ethnic groups were represented in the normative sample of 4,187 adolescent boys and girls in middle schools and high schools.
  • Conversions of raw scores to percentiles and T scores are provided by gender and age group.
  • Statistical analyses support the use of the AARS in both clinical and research applications. It is useful for measuring behavior change and selecting an appropriate intervention program.
