ADOLESCENT SYMPTOM INVENTORY-4 (ASI-4R)
Ages 12 to 18 Years By Kenneth D. Gadow, Ph.D. and Joyce Sprafkin, Ph.D.
The Adolescent Symptom Inventory-4 (ASI-4) is a behavior rating scale that screens for DSM-IV emotional and behavioral disorders in youths between 12 and 18 years old. The parent-completed ASI-4 Checklist contains 120 items that screen for 18 emotional and behavioral disorders, and the ASI-4: Teacher Checklist contains 79 items that screen for 15 emotional and behavioral disorders. The Youth's Inventory-4 is a self-report instrument that corresponds item-by-item to the ASI-4. The ASI-4 can be scored to derive Symptom Count scores (diagnostic model) or Symptom Severity scores (normative data model). Scoring is quick and easy with user-friendly score sheets.

RESEARCH: ASI-4 scores show a high degree of correspondence with psychiatric diagnosis (predictive validity) and correlate well with other commonly used dimensional scales (concurrent validity). The norm sample for the parent-completed ASI-4 Checklist (N=761) and the Teacher Checklist (N=994) consisted of youths between 12 and 18 years old who attended public middle and secondary schools. T scores and raw scores for males and females are presented separately on Symptom Severity Profile score sheets.
PRODUCT INFORMATION: The 2008 ASI-4 Consolidated Manual (which combines the Screening and Norms Manuals) is a 144-page book that reviews diagnostic criteria and describes research, scoring guidelines, normative data, and clinical applications for Symptom Count scores and Symptom Severity scores. The ASI-4 Deluxe Kit contains the Consolidated Manual, 25 Parent Checklists, 25 Teacher Checklists, 50 Symptom Count score sheets (with scoring instructions, cutoff scores, and rule out diagnoses), and 50 Symptom Severity Profile (T scores) score sheets for both Parent and Teacher Checklists. The Parent and Teacher Checklists are also available in Spanish and are keyed to the English-language version item-by-item.
