Abstract

This study examined the extent to which the Behavioral and Emotional Rating Scale: Parent Rating Scale (BERS: PRS) constitutes a reliable measure for assessing strengths of Hispanic children and youth. Major conceptual and theoretical issues with respect to cross-cultural assessment are presented. Further, emotional and behavioral disorders are discussed in the context of cross-cultural assessment relative to the large and growing participation in U. S. schools of Hispanic students. Standard scores, coefficient alphas, and SEMS for total norm sample, European and Hispanic Americans were equivalent, thus tentatively supporting the cross-cultural utility of the BERS-II PRS.
