Abstract

institute of Psychiatry, Maudsley Hospital, London INTRODUCTION AN OVERALL psychiatric assessment of the child requires the combination of several different approaches to the measurement of the cliild's behaviour (Rutter and Graham, 1966), but as a first step in the evaluation, questionnaires have an important place, especially for screening or survey purposes. Because school teachers have the opportunity of observing and comparing large numbers of children and because of the practical importance of the child's behaviour in school, questionnaires completed by teachers are particularly useful screening devices. Unfortunately, as with other measures of child behaviour there are few adequately developed instruments f Pritchard, 1963). The present paper reports the development of a simple behavioural questionnaire for completion by teachers. Wickman (1928) was the first to make a systematic attempt to measure children's behaviour in the classroom, and revisions of his scales by Haggerty (1925) and Olson (1930) were shown by them lo have good reliability and validity. Among the more recent scales of general applicability for which there are some published details on reliability and validity are those described by Eisenberg et al. (1962), Mulligan (Mulligan, 1963; Mulligan^^a/., 1963), Ros&etal. (1965), and Stott (1963). Although excellent in many ways
