The CAS is a multi-informant rating scale to evaluate the setting-specific frequency and severity of aggressive acts in children through Parent and Teacher Rating Forms.
Facilitates treatment planning and monitoring in response to acts of aggression
- Items describe aggressive acts and are weighted differentially depending on the severity of the act.
- Standardized on a community sample of 438 parents and 516 teachers of children ages 5-18 years. Data were also collected on a clinical sample of 247 parents and 252 teachers of children who had been diagnosed with one or more of the following: ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, and social maladjustment.
- Validity was examined in terms of intercorrelations among the scales and clusters, convergent validity with existing behavioral measures (i.e., BASC-2, CBCL) and domain-specific assessments (i.e., OAS, CDS, IOWA Conners), and clinical validity among the clinical samples.
