This article describes the development and validation of a 56-item self-administered questionnaire which aims to measure adolescent behavioural outcomes (adolescent violent tendency, adolescent health concerns, adolescent social adjustment and adolsescent sexual vulnerability) with the aim of detecting early point of intervention among the three major groups. Items were generated from 16 focus group discussions, literature review and theory. This was followed by, repeated measures, taken from, in and out-of school adolescents. The questionnaire was acceptable to the adolescents. It was reliable (test-retest and split-half). Comparisons with independently gathered interview data showed that it had criterion-related validity.
