General Description

The BRIEF2 is a rating scale completed by parents (Parent Form) and teachers (Teacher Form) of school-age children (5 to 18 years) and by adolescentes aged 11 to 18 years (Self-Report Form) that assesses everyday behaviors associated with executive functions. The BRIEF2 Parent Form and Teacher Form contain 63 items within nine clinical scales that measure commonly agreed upon domains of executive functionning: Inhibit, Self-Monitor, Shift, Emotional Control, Initiate,Working Memory, Plan/Organize, Task. Monitor, and Organization of Materials. The Self-Report Form contains 55 items within seven clinical scales that parallel the Parent and Teacher Forms.

The BRIEF2 instruments have a large international body of evidence showing their reliabilty and validity, as well as their relevance in many domains and groups.

Normative, reliabilty and validity studies are now being carried out in Portugal.
