Student Risk Screening Scale (SRSS)

The Student Risk Screening Scale is a brief, no-cost, user-friendly screening tool designed to identify school-aged students with externalizing problems. The SRSS includes the following seven items: (a) steal; (b) lie, cheat, sneak; (c) behavior problem; (d) peer rejection; (e) low academic achievement; (f) negative attitude; and (g) aggressive behavior. These items are rated on a four-point Likert-type scale (never = 0, occasionally = 1, sometimes = 2, frequently = 3). Total scores are summed (range = 0–21, with higher scores indicating higher risk) and used to classify students into one of three risk categories established by publishers: low (0–3), moderate (4–8), or high (9–21). The SSRS can be completed by teachers 6-8 weeks after the onset of the academic years and requires approximately 10 to 15 minutes to rate all students within a classroom.
