This article describes the structure of the Amsterdamse Kindergedragslijst, which was designed to obtain teachers' ratings of behavior disorders within the classroom. The scale is intended to differentiate among some of the main behavioral dimensions including inattention, impulsiveness, hyperactivity, aggression and anxiety. Teachers from 111 elementary schools completed the scale on 2222 sixth graders. Factor analysis revealed four factors, entitled inattention, restlessness, aggression, and anxiety/uncertainty. Internal consistency of the subscales is good. Stability is satisfactory except for anxiety/uncertainty. Some indications of validity of the subscales are presented. The results are compared with another study yielding similar results with a different procedure of item selection. Together the results add to the evidence attesting to the separation of attentional problems from other behavioral dimensions.
