The reliability and validity of the Aggregate Neurobehavioral Student Health and Educational Review parent's questionnaire (ANSER-PQ).J Child Neurol. 2010 Feb; 25(2):157-64.JC
The internal reliability and validity of the Aggregate Neurobehavioral Student Health and Educational Review parent's questionnaire (ANSER-PQ) were evaluated. Three diagnostic groups participated: (1) attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD; N = 100), (2) learning disability (N = 80), and (3) a combined group (N-100). The Conners' parent and teacher rating scales were completed. Seven clusters were derived as follows: conduct, anxiety, social, attention and activity, strengths, obsessive-compulsive, and distress and disruption. Internal reliability was found above 0.7 for 6 of the clusters. Concurrent validity was found highly significant for the clusters of conduct and attention and activity. Discriminant validity of these clusters was found acceptable for the attention and learning disability groups. The clusters of conduct, attention and activity, and distress and disruption were found to significantly correlate with the Conners' teacher scale. The ANSER-PQ may be employed for the assessment of children with attention or learning disabilities.
