Measures 14 bipolar behavioral tendencies among adolescents aged 13 to 18
The JBC™ measures 14 bipolar behavioral tendencies among adolescents against a large delinquent sample. It consists of two parallel forms: an Observer Form for ratings by teachers, probation or corrections officers, counselors, therapists, etc.; and a Self-Appraisal Form for self-evaluation. It can be scored and administered quickly and easily using QuikScore™ Self-Appraisal and Observer Forms.
The clinician-completed QuikScore™ form is a self-scoring form used to administer the JBC. The 80-item form uses a five-point response scale and measures 14 factor scales.
JBC Self-appraisal QuikScore™ Form
The JBC self-appraisal is an 80-item self-report that asks individuals to evaluate their behavioral characteristics. It consists of 14 factor scales that assess the individual's tendency towards different polarities. The JBC checklist obtains a comprehensive snapshot of an individual's behavior.
Each JBC form has its own reusable item booklet. The front of each booklet provides instructions.
The JBC was developed to fill the need for an instrument that could be easily completed by nonprofessionals and measure behaviors of delinquent youths. It has been proven to be accurate, dependable, and of high quality. The majority of studies using the JBC have proven the instrument to be reliable and valid, with good inter-observer and predictive validity.
The normative sample for the JBC consists of 2,114 youths from 13 to 21 years old. Most of the youth were male delinquents in two California Youth Authority institutions. The 235 females in the normative group were on probation.
