BIMAS description

The Behavior Intervention Monitoring Assessment System (BIMAS™) is a measure of social, emotional and behavioral functioning of children and adolescents ages 5 to 18 years. The BIMAS Standard Form includes 34 change-sensitive items that can be used for universal screening as well as for progress monitoring of interventions. The BIMAS is the only commercially available measure comprised of items developed based on years of research and a scientific model for selecting items that are sensitive to change (Meier, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2004).  An additional key feature of the BIMAS is its flexibility to customize progress monitoring plans for groups and individual interventions and generate multiple dynamic (on demand) type of reports that include graphical as well as statistical representation of data.  Information for the BIMAS is gathered by multiple sources, parents, teachers and children themselves.
