|Scoring||It has two type scoring Adjusted and maladjusted|
All four versions have high inter-rater reliability and moderate internal consistency
All four versions have established diagnostic validity – test scores discriminate between persons known to be well-adjusted or poorly-adjusted on the basis of independent criteria. Theoretical validity has been tested for the Child version – RISB scores correlate with anxiety and parental attitudes but not with school grades.
The RISB has been normalized for primary school grade VII (now junior high school, grade I) pupils (children version), secondary school grade III (now secondary school grade II) pupils (adolescent version), college students (students version), adults (adults version) and for soldiers in basic military service (version for soldiers).
It has four versions: for children, for adolescents, for students and for adults (including subversion for soldiers).
