Post-Intervention Ratings of Child and Parent Change (Original)

Abstract

The Post-Intervention Ratings of Child and Parent Change is a 20-item instrument that measures parent's perceptions of change of their own behavior and of their child's behavior. This measure is divided into two parts. The first 9 items concern the child's behavior across the school year. The second part of the measure contains 11 questions where the parent rates the change of his/her own behavior toward the target child. This measure was part of the summer interviews for years 2 through 7. In year 5 (see Post-Intervention Ratings of Child and Parent Change (Grade 4+)), five additional questions concerning the parent's ability to communicate with the child were added to the parent section of the measure .

There are two subscales for this measure. Both subscales are summary scores that are factor-based or theoretically derived and are calculated using mean scores. All items use the same response scale, which ranges from -3 to 3 (much worse, somewhat worse, a little worse, no change, a little improved, somewhat improved, and much improved).

The first subscale is the Rating of Change of Child and the second subscale is the Rating of Change of Parent.

Analysts should note that both subscales are adequate. It is recommended to use a single mean score scale for each of these subscales.
