Abstract: Several abbreviated checklists perform well in distinguishing children with attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) from those without ADHD under ideal conditions and in research settings. While many guidelines and experts recommend using these checklists as an efficient method to collect data from multiple sources (strength of recommendation: B, based on extrapolation from cohort studies to define test characteristics and consensus opinion), experts point out the subjective nature of responses on behavior rating scales, and the limitations in using checklists as the sole source of information.
