THE BASC-2 TEST
The BASC 2 Behavioral and Emotional Screening System is a multidimensional
and multimethodical system, used in assessing the behaviour and self image for
children and young people between 2 and 25 years old.
The BASC-2 test approaches personality in a variety of methods.
This test consists of the following assessment methods, which may be
used either individually or in any of their possible combinations:
• Two assessment scales, one for the teachers (The Teacher Rating Scale,
TRS) and one for the parents (The Parent Rating Scale, PRS). Each
scale is divided into several age groups. With the help of these scales,
various descriptions can be collected regarding the noticeable part of the
child’s behaviour. A self-report scale ( Self-Report of Personality, SRP), by means of which the child
or the young adult can describe their own emotions or self perceptions.
• A structured interview, regarding the history of the behavior of the assessed person (Structured
Developmental History, SDH).
• An observation sheet which can be used to record and classify the behaviour which was directly
noticeable in class (Student Observation System, SOS).
