Three of the better known screeners for Attention Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) symptomology were administered to 111 college students enrolled in a college Introductory Psychology class, on whom ACT scores and total course performance were also available. As a measure of cognitive ability, the Wonderlic Personnel Test (Wonderlic, Inc., 2000) was also administered. Futhermore, self-report data were available from participants who had been diagnosed with ADHD. The three screeners were the Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS) (Kessler et al., 2005), the Conners' Adult ADHD Rating Scale--Self-Report:Long Version (CAARS) (Conners, Erhardt, & Sparrow, 1999), and the Brown ADD Scales (Brown, 1996). The results are discussed in terms of the scales' reliability, as well as their relationship to academic aptitude, class performance, and their ability to identify self-reported ADHD diagnoses.
