Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Identifying children’s conduct problems is helpful for clinicians planning further intervention. We have developed the comprehensive COPS and established its expert validity. This study aimed to establish its construct validity and Rasch reliability. After analysis, the remaining 23 items were unidimensional and had high Rasch reliability. Thus, clinicians can administer the COPS to accurately and precisely assess children’s conduct problems.
