Måleegenskaper ved den norske versjonen av Anxiety Disorders Interview Schedule for DSM IV: Barneversjonen (ADIS for DSM IV:C)
Literature search. The systematic literature research resulted in over 600 references whereby only six publications from a Norwegian sample and five from the Danish and Swedish sample were included. The studies reported mostly from clinical samples where ADIS-C was used to diagnose the children.
Psychometrics. The included studies reported average scores regarding clinician severity ratings (CSR), prevalence in the different outpatient groups, and the inter-rater reliability between experienced clinicians and the trained students performing the diagnostic interviews.
Conclusion. The psychometric properties of the Norwegian version of ADIS-C are not well documented. Even though the method is acknowledged in the field, and have shown international adequate psychometric results, more studies from a Scandinavian population are needed.
