How are the Mean Adaptive Functioning and Total Problems scores used?

Answer: These scores provide global indices of the adult’s overall functioning, as seen by the respondent. We have found that ASR Mean Adaptive Functioning T scores of 40 and Total Problems T scores of 60 provide good cutpoints for discriminating between clinically referred and non-referred adults (see Chapter 2 for details of cutpoints). The Mean Adaptive Functioning and Total Problems scores can also be used as a basis for comparing different groups and for assessing change as a function of time or interventions. (Because the ABCL has only two adaptive functioning scales, no score is computed for mean adaptive functioning.)
