Description


The Jesness Behavior Checklist™ (JBC™) measures 14 bipolar behavioral tendencies among adolescents against a large delinquent sample. The JBC consists of two parallel forms: an Observer Form for ratings by teachers, probation or correctional officers, counselors, therapists, etc; and a Self-Appraisal Form for self-evaluation. The JBC can be scored and administered quickly and easily using QuikScore™ Self-Appraisal and Observer Forms.
