Problem Behavior Rating Scale. Technical Report 78-01.
Grosek, Robert J.
The paper describes the development of a quantifiable problem behavior scale which was field tested with mentally retarded institutionalized persons. Fourteen staff members rated Ss on 42 problem behaviors which were weighted according to degree of disruptiveness. Summing of the item scores is explained to produce a total score which can be used to compare Ss and to predict entry and success in habilitative programs. (CL)
