The Conners 4 is an inclusive and fair measure that builds on the long history and strengths of the multi-informant Conners Rating Scales. Conners 4 will be an invaluable part of your ADHD assessment battery with updated norms, improved workflows, and new and improved features.

New features

Improved efficiency and usability

Now fully digital, Conners 4 helps you gain valuable time with customizable reports, online scoring for better data visualization, easy inventory management, a digital manual, and printable forms.

Increased accuracy of assessment

Conners 4 updates allow you to:

  • Address critical concerns with Severe Conduct and Self-Harm Critical Items and a Sleep Problems Indicator
  • Measure impairments related to ADHD symptoms in the school, social, and family domains
  • Evaluate new content areas and common co-occurring problems such as emotional dysregulation, depressed mood, and anxious thoughts
  • Apply a dimensional approach with an additional DSM Symptoms Scale – Total ADHD Symptoms

Superior quantification of severity

Conners 4 helps you evaluate the severity of symptoms by comparing the child’s results to an ADHD Reference Sample (children/youth already diagnosed with ADHD).

Enhanced collaboration with parents

Conners 4 facilitates collaboration with parents using an enhanced Parent Feedback Handout (easy-to-understand explanation and summary of results).

Increased fairness and inclusivity

Conners 4 improves fairness and inclusivity with gender-inclusive language, culturally sensitive items, and items and scales that show no evidence of measurement bias regarding gender, race/ethnicity, country of residence, or parental education level.

More informed intervention

Conners 4 allows evaluation of a youth’s relative strengths and weaknesses using Within-Profile Comparisons for more informed intervention.

Easier administration

Take the guesswork out of your inventory management with a new way to order Conners 4 uses. You can purchase a general Conners 4 use and apply it across any Conners 4 form while generating reports.

Conners 4 and Q-global

The Conners 4 is 100% digital and offers digital scoring only. Scoring online is less prone to error than handscoring and takes very little time. Given the time, cost savings, and improvement to accuracy, online scoring was reported as the preferred option in market research. While hand scoring will not be available, paper administration will still be possible by printing a paper form from Q-global®. The responses from the paper form can then be entered for computer scoring and reporting.
