About the Author

Dr. C. Keith Conners has had an extraordinary and diverse career as an academic, clinician, researcher, lecturer, author, editor-in-chief, and administrator. His dedication to the study of ADHD and other childhood problems propelled him to the forefront of his field. His intense interest has led him to write several books, journal articles, and book chapters based on his research on ADHD and childhood disorders. He is highly recognized in the field of psychology for his numerous contributions.

This package includes: Conners 3 Manual, 25 each of the Parent, and Teacher QuikScore Forms, and 25 each of the Parent, and Teacher Short QuikScore Forms

Based on the solid findings and key elements of its predecessor, the Conners Rating Scales Revised (CRSR), the Conners 3 offers a more thorough assessment of ADHD. The Conners 3 now addresses comorbid disorders such as oppositional defiant disorder and conduct disorder. Each parent, teacher, and self-report form is available in full-length and short versions.

You will benefit from the following enhancements:

  • A large representative normative sample based on the latest U.S. census data
  • A refined focus on ADHD in school-age children with a new age range (6 to 18 for parent and teacher scales and 8 to 18 for self-report scales)
  • Strengthened Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders: Fourth Edition (DSM-IV-TR) connections
  • Clear applications in education settings that help identify children with clinical symptoms
  • A manual that provides step-by-step guidance on how to use the tool in intervention planning and monitoring

As with its predecessor, the new Conners 3 is a multi-informant assessment. Gathering information from parents, teachers and youth provides a view of the childs disorder and concerns from multiple perspectives.

Paper and Pencil Scoring:
All the Conners 3 forms are available in the QuikScore format (Conners 3 Response Forms or Conners 3 Response Short Forms). The rater writes on the external layers of the form and the results transfer through to a hidden scoring grid within the internal layers. The assessor then uses the internal layers for tabulating and profiling results. Tables within the QuikScore form link responses directly to DSM-IV-TR symptoms of ADHD, CD, and ODD. Each Conners QuikScore form includes profile sheets, which are used to easily convert raw scores to standardised T-scores. These profile sheets also produce an easy-to-interpret graphical display of the results.

Alternatively, assessors who wish to use computerised scoring (and not use handscoring), can use the Conners 3 Software Response Booklets. These are available in the full-length form and lists all the Conners 3 items, but does not include the scoring pages. Responses from either type of paper-and-pencil administration can be entered into the Software Scoring program.

Software (USB Key) Scoring:
All the Conners 3 forms can be scored using the scoring software program by entering responses from a completed paper-and-pencil administration into the software. Note that the Conners 3 cannot be administered through the software. The Scoring Software can be installed on an unlimited number of computers; however, the Conners USB Key must always be connected to the USB port of the computer from which you are running the program.

Conners 3 Interpretative Update
Important refinements have been made to the Conners 3 including: (1) Updated Validity scale guidelines with new language to better reflect the intent of the scales; (2) Refined T-score cutoff categories and category descriptions; and (3) The Aggression scale name change to Defiance/Aggression.
