This is a well-tested, widely used measure that has been shown to detect change in behavior due to treatment. Good psychometrics. Brief and easy to administer and score. It has only 36 items. Other measures are more than double the length. Normative data and clinical cutoffs are available. A Spanish version is available. There is a comparable teacher report version, which allows for assessment of disruptive behaviors across settings by parents and teachers.
Cons: 1. Answers are largely subjective. Normative data may not be representative of the populations measured; only a small percentage of the families solicited in the Burns et al.
In addition, norms are not ethnically diverse. The Spanish version has not yet been found reliable across Hispanic cultures.
The ECBI as it currently stands may not be as well defined as it would be if it were based on a 3-factor model as opposed to a 2-factor model. The ECBI was developed primarily as a measure of disruptive behavior and does not assess PTSD symptomatology or anxiety-related symptoms commonly seen in children exposed to trauma. Given this, the ECBI should probably be used in conjunction with another measure of symptomatology when assessing children exposed to trauma.
Although the measure can be used for children as young as 2, many of the items do not apply to younger children. Although the measure can be used for children as old as 16, it does not contain items that would be more applicable to disruptive behaviors in the older age range.

Both the manual and the test administration are user friendly. Scoring is quick and easy. The scales derived from factor analysis may be helpful in providing more information for diagnoses. Revised to improve validity and reliability.

The present study examined the psychometric properties of the Dutch translation, including analysis on the one-dimensional structure of the ECBI scales using item response theory. The results also indicated good internal consistency, test-retest reliability community sample , and good convergent and divergent validity. Findings support the use of the ECBI as a reliable measure for child disruptive behavior problems in a Dutch population. Suggestions for the optimal use of the both ECBI scales for research and screening purposes are made.
