The Symptom Checklist-90-R, or SCL-90-R, helps evaluate a broad range of psychological problems, symptoms of psychopathology, and can be helpful in measuring patient progress or treatment outcomes. The test is normed on 4 groups: adult psychiatric outpatients, adult non patients, adult psychiatric inpatients, and adolescent nonpatients. Adolescent norms are used for 13-17 year olds and nonpatient adult norms are used for subjects over age 17.


The SCL-90-R instrument is used by clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and professionals in mental health, medical, education settings and for research purposes. More than 1,000 studies have been conducted to show the reliability, validity and utility of the test. It scores 0.74 -0.94 α for internal consistency and r = 0.80 for convergent validity to BDI. Please refer to this article for more psychometric qualities: Prinz, U., Nutzinger, D.O., Schulz, H., Petermann, F., Braukhaus, C., & Andreas, S. (2013).
