Abstract

This study sought to examine the usefulness, reliability, and validity of the Revised Memory and Behavior Problems Checklist (Teri et al., 1992). Analyses included data from 952 patients. Cronbachs' alphas for sub-scales ranged from .80 to .99; factor analysis confirmed the structure of scales. Significant correlations with MMSE, parts of the Blessed-Roth Dementia Scale, and ratings of patient and caregiver functioning indicate good construct validity. Differences among mild, moderate and severe staged patients also indicate good validity. However, invariance across follow-up visits may be problematic for those using the scale to measure change due to disease progression, treatments or other interventions.
