Predictive Validity of a School Behavior Rating Scale.
Rubin, Rosalyn A.; Krus, Patricia H.
Results of a longitudinal study of the predictive validity of the School Behavior Profile (SBP) filled out by the classroom teachers of 721 first grade children indicated that: (1) First grade SBP scores are significantly related to fourth grade teacher judgments regarding the presence of behavior and attitude problems (r = -.40), (2) First grade SBP scores are significantly related to total number of special school placement and special services received by subjects by the end of fourth grade (r = -.42). Findings suggest that the SBP can significantly contribute to early identification of "high risk" children likely to require special school treatment. (Author)
