Validation of the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale- short form among Indian adolescents.

08:00 EDT 3rd October 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Validation of the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale- short form among Indian adolescents."

Impulsivity is widely assessed with a 30 item self-report measure known as the Barrratt Impulsiveness Scale (BIS-11). Further development involved creation of an abbreviated version, called Barratt Impulsiveness Scale- short form (BIS-15; Spinella, 2007) from the original BIS-11. Unlike the original BIS-11, BIS-15 has not undergone sufficient cross cultural validation especially among the adolescent population.
