The Conners 3 is a thorough assessment of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and its most common comorbid problems and disorders in children and adolescents aged 6 to 18 years. It is a multi-informant assessment that takes into account home, social, and school settings with ratings forms for parents, teachers, and youth.

Paper and Pencil Scoring:
All the Conners 3 forms are available in the QuikScore format (Conners 3 Response Forms or Conners 3 Response Short Forms). The rater writes on the external layers of the form and the results transfer through to a hidden scoring grid within the internal layers. The assessor then uses the internal layers for tabulating and profiling results. Tables within the QuikScore form link responses directly to DSM-IV-TR/DSM-5 and IDEA 2004. Each Conners QuikScore form includes profile sheets, which are used to easily convert raw scores to standardized T-scores. These profile sheets also produce an easy-to-interpret graphical display of the results.
Alternatively, assessors who wish to use computerized scoring (and not use handscoring), can use the Conners 3 Software Response Booklets. These are available in the full-length form and lists all the Conners 3 items, but does not include the scoring pages. Responses from either type of paper-and-pencil administration can be entered into the Software Scoring program.
Software (USB Key) Scoring:
All the Conners 3 forms can be scored using the scoring software program by entering responses from a completed paper-and-pencil administration into the software. Note that the Conners 3 cannot be administered through the software. The Scoring Software can be installed on an unlimited number of computers; however, the Conners USB Key must always be connected to the USB port of the computer from which you are running the program.

Important refinements have been made to the Conners 3 including: (1) Updated Validity scale guidelines with new language to better reflect the intent of the scales; (2) Refined T-score cutoff categories and category descriptions; and (3) The Aggression scale name change to Defiance/Aggression.
