The Ohio Scale-Youth, Parent, and Clinician versions

The Ohio Scale-Youth, Parent, and Clinician versions

(Ogles, Melendez, David, & Lunnen, 2001).

The Ohio scale is a 48-item self-, parent-, and a clinician-report measure assessing outcomes of youths ages 5-18 receiving mental health services. This Ohio scale can be used to monitor symptom changes over time (Ogles et al., 2001). The measure comprises four subscales including, functioning, hopefulness, satisfaction with treatment, and problem severity, with subscales rated on 5- or 6-point Likert Scales. Sample items include, “Breaking rules or breaking the law (out past curfew, stealing)” and “Keeping neat and clean, looking good.” This measure can be administered in 15 minutes. The Ohio scale is available for free for all Ohio providers and can be purchased for use by providers outside Ohio for a nominal fee. Outside of Ohio, an independent practitioner can purchase unlimited use of the scales for $10; a group of practitioners (<50 total) can purchase the scales for $50; and the statewide network of practitioners (e.g., a group of clinics) can purchase the scales for $250. The Ohio scale demonstrates adequate to excellent internal consistency (α = .65-.97) and fair to adequate test-retest reliability at 1-week intervals; (α=.43-.88; Ogles et al., 2001). The Ohio scale has demonstrated significant correlations with the CBCL (Achenbach & Rescorla, 2001) and the YSR (Achenbach, 1991b) and discriminant validity between youths in clinical and community samples (Ogles et al., 2001). The Ohio Scale is available in a number of languages (i.e., Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Mexican, Puerto Rican, Russian, Somali and Vietnamese). The measure is available from ben_ogles@byu.edu.
