Behavioral Dyscontrol Scale (BDS) is a clinical measure previously shown to be related to frontal lobe integrity, executive abilities, and functional independence. Electronic version of the scale (BDS-EV) was developed and its reliability and validity were examined. The BDS-EV, the original BDS, and a brief battery of traditional clinical tests were administered to 55 community-dwelling adults ages 18 to 68. The results yielded high internal consistency and provided support for convergent, discriminant, and incremental validity. Overall, the results demonstrate the feasibility of converting the BDS into an electronic instrument and support continued research and development of this instrument.
