    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/DSM-5 and IDEA 2004. Each Conners QuikScore form includes profile sheets, which are used to easily convert raw scores to standardized T-scores. These profile sheets also produce an easy-to-interpret graphical display of the results.

    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.
