What is an informant?

An informant is any person who is filling out an assessment form. A parent who has filled out a Child Behavior Checklist is an informant; a teacher who has filled out a Teacher Report Form is also an informant. Anyone asked to complete an evaluation is an informant.

In the case of a "self report" form (Adult Self Report, Youth Self Report, etc.), the informant will be the assessed person.
