Test Review: Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function--Self-Report Version
Walker, Justin M.; D'Amato, Rik Carl
Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, v24 n4 p394-398 2006
The Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function-Self-Report version (BRIEF-SR) is the first self-report measure of executive functioning for adolescents. With the Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act authorization, there is a greater need for appropriate assessment of severely impaired children. Recent studies have demonstrated the importance of executive functioning as a component of a complete evaluation (D'Amato, Fletcher-Janzen, & Reynolds, 2005). The BRIEF-SR aids in the diagnosis and treatment of problems related to executive functioning. Due to the brief nature of the form, it can be administered without adding significant time to the assessment process and should take about 15 minutes to complete. In fact, the self-report nature of this measure allows for the form to be completed away from a typical testing setting. The structure of the test allows for the collection of valuable information in a short period of time. This article provides a general description of BRIEF-SR, its technical adequacy, and an evaluation of the test.
