Bose-Deakins, Jillayne E.; Floyd, Randy G.
Journal of School Psychology, v42 n4 p333-340 Jul-Aug 2004
This review focused on the Beck Youth Inventories of Emotional and Social Impairment (BYI) [Beck, J., Beck, A., & Jolly, J. (2001). Beck Youth Inventories of Emotional and Social Impairment manual. San Antonio: Psychological Corporation]. The BYI were designed as self-report instruments for assessing maladaptive cognitions and behaviors of children ages 7 to 14. They include inventories measuring anxiety, depression, disruptive behavior, anger, and self-concept. The review evaluated the development, standardization, and norming of the BYI and the evidence of reliability and validity of their scores. Although the BYI achieve many of the goals outlined by their authors, users should be aware that there are a number of limitations or unanswered questions regarding the inventories.
