The BRIEF-A is a standardized measure that captures views of an adult’s executive functions or self-regulation in his or her everyday environment. Both a self-report and an informant report are used.

Features and benefits

  • Based on the original BRIEF, the BRIEF-A is composed of 75 items within nine nonoverlapping theoretically and empirically derived clinical scales: Inhibit, Self-Monitor, Plan/Organize, Shift, Initiate, Task Monitor, Emotional Control, Working Memory, and Organization of Materials.
  • Useful for a wide variety of developmental, systemic, neurological, and psychiatric disorders such as attention disorders, learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, depression, mild cognitive impairment, dementias, and schizophrenia.

Test structure

Two broad indexes (Behavioral Regulation and Metacognition), an overall summary score, and three validity scales (Negativity, Inconsistency, and Infrequency) are included.

Technical information

  • Normative sample included 1,136 adults from a wide range of racial/ethnic backgrounds, educational backgrounds, and geographic regions. Profiles for diagnostic groups, including ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease, and multiple sclerosis, are presented.
  • The BRIEF-A has demonstrated evidence of reliability, validity, and clinical utility as an ecologically sensitive measure of executive functioning in individuals with a range of conditions across a wide age range.

Software portfolio available

The BRIEF-A SP is used to score and generate interpretive reports for the BRIEF-A Self-Report and Informant Report. After hand-entry of an individual’s item or scale raw scores, the software program generates normative scores and Interpretive Reports, Feedback Reports, and Protocol Summary Reports.
