It has been widely used in treatment outcome studies for disruptive disorders. It is not a diagnostic tool. A teacher-report version of this measure, also reviewed in the database.
The ECBI was originally standardized on parents of preadolescent children in It was standardized on parents of adolescents in Primarily, these children were from lower- and lower-middle SES White families recruited from a pediatric outpatient clinic located in a large urban medical school in the Northwest U.
The ECBI was later standardized by independent investigators on two additional samples in the Northwest. They reported significant age effects on the intensity and problem score but no meaningful and significant gender effects.
In this sample, 7. Sample characteristics were as follows: They also found significant age effects for Frequency and Problem scales, with children having higher Frequency scores than the other 3 age groups, and children scoring higher than older age groups.
In this nonclinical sample, Norms provided by Burns and colleagues are provided by gender and age, In addition, given the response rates, it is questionable as to whether the norms are representative. In addition, both samples had exclusions that would affect the base rate of behavior problems including exclusion of those with a history of treatment for learning disabilities or behavior problems. This sample consisted of children, aged 2 to 16, with each of the 15 age groups equally represented.
Norms are presented by gender and age separately by each year ECBI clinical cutoffs have provided evidence for the clinical significance of treatment effects. A number of studies have examined the factor structure of the ECBI, but results have not been consistent, and there are data suggesting that the ECBI might best be viewed as measuring 3 factors.
Burns and Patterson conducted an exploratory factor analysis of 1, children and adolescents and identified 3 meaningful factors and a fourth poorly defined factor.
Confirmatory factor analysis with a second sample of 1, children and adolescents revealed that best model was the 3-factor model: Zahr used the ECBI in a study of the impact of heavy shelling on preschool Lebanese children aged Children who lived in heavy shelling areas had higher ECBI scores than those not exposed to shelling.
The ECBI has been used with children with learning disabilities e. The ECBI has been used in a number of studies involving children with developmental disabilities with results providing evidence of validity and reliability.
No studies to date have shown the criterion validity for this measure. Otherwise the measure seems psychometrically sound and has been well studied in diverse populations, including individuals of lower SES. The ECBI was first standardized between and on parents of children from a pediatric clinic of a large medical school in the Northwestern United States.

Primarily the children were from lower- to lower-middle income Caucasian families. It was restandardized in with a sample that represented the general child population in the Southeastern United States.
There were children between ages 2 and SES According to Hollingshead This is a well-tested, widely used measure that has been shown to detect change in behavior due to treatment. Brief and easy to administer and score.
It has only 36 items. Other measures are more than double the length. There is a comparable teacher report version, which allows for assessment of disruptive behaviors across settings by parents and teachers. Normative data may not be representative of the populations measured; only a small percentage of the families solicited in the Burns et al. In addition, norms are not ethnically diverse.
The ECBI as it currently stands may not be as well defined as it would be if it were based on a 3-factor model as opposed to a 2-factor model. The ECBI was developed primarily as a measure of disruptive behavior and does not assess PTSD symptomatology or anxiety-related symptoms commonly seen in children exposed to trauma. Given this, the ECBI should probably be used in conjunction with another measure of symptomatology when assessing children exposed to trauma.
Although the measure can be used for children as young ivnentory 2, many of the items do not apply to younger children. Although the measure can be used for children as old as 16, it does not contain items that would be more applicable to disruptive behaviors in the older age range.
