Behavior Intervention Monitoring Assessment System (BIMAS-2)
About This Resource
The Behavior Intervention Monitoring Assessment System (BIMAS-2™) is a measure of social, emotional and behavioral functioning in children and adolescents ages 5 to 18 years. The BIMAS Standard Form includes 34 change-sensitive items that are used for universal screening of behavior concerns and for assessing and monitoring the progress of behavior and mental health related interventions. The BIMAS items were developed based on over 10 years of research and a scientific model for selecting items that are sensitive to change called Intervention Item Selection Rules (IISRs; Meier, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2004). It is the only commercially available measure comprised of items with demonstrated change sensitivity based on the IISRs model and the only measure build from this perspective in mind from the grounds up.
