Short Description of Instrument
The Social Skills Rating Scale (SSRS) assesses social behaviors such as cooperation, empathy, assertion, self-control and responsibility by gathering information from the child, their parents and teachers. The Problems Behaviors Scale assesses hyperactivity, externalizing and internalizing behaviors, all of which could interfere with the development of social skills. A teacher report form measures academic functioning.
Scoring
Standard scores (M=100, SD=15) and percentile ranks are calculated from raw scale scores.
