Abstract

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a developmental neurocognitive psychiatric disorder that is characterized by problems with attention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity that affects on children and adults. This study aims at validating one of the worlds' most commonly used self-report measure of ADHD in adults; the Conners' Adult ADHD Rating Scales (2002). The English version was translated, back translated, and then administered to 600 college students. The internal consistency, test-retest reliability was examined. The construct validity was measured by means of confirmatory factor analysis, measurement invariance across gender and age categories will be tested. It is important to diagnose individuals with ADHD because although they are relatively leading normal lives, having families and jobs, they confront a wide range of problems in nearly all aspects of life due to this disorder.
