Abstract

This article describes the development of a teacher rating scale that is sensitive to a select group of behavior disorders exhibited by children in the classroom. The scale, the Illinois Classroom Assessment Profile (ICAP), was developed to distinguish among behavioral dimensions representing sustained attention, impulsivity, conduct, fine motor coordination, and evaluative anxiety. The fact that disorders in these behaviors are observed in children diagnosed as hyperactive has served as the impetus for this research. The ICAP is intended to facilitate research investigating the effects of specific treatments on each of these behavioral dimensions.
