Scales of Independent Behavior-Revised

Scoring
  • Scoring

    A variety of scores are available to examiners using the SIB-R:

    • SS
    • PR
    • AE
    • instructional and developmental ranges

    In addition to the developmental and peer comparison scores, examiners can obtain an RMI for each subscale and cluster in the test.

    The SIB-R contains a functional limitations index, which can be used to define the presence and severity of adaptive behavior limitations. This measure is similar to the functioning levels in the SIB, but has been improved in the SIB-R by using more descriptive language to predict functional levels and limitations.

    The Support Score is a weighted measure of maladaptive and adaptive behaviors that is used to determine the support, supervision, and resources an individual needs. It is categorized into six broad levels of support: Pervasive, Extensive, Frequent, Limited, Intermittent, and Infrequent or No Support. Higher scores reflect increased functional independence and a decreased need for support, while lower scores indicate a need for an increase of support services.
