put the age and gender on the forms; no names were required and every unnecessary area on the

questionnaire was blacked out. The parents were asked to use the child’s code number. They

were told that completing the form would not take more than 10 minutes.

Then teachers were given consent forms to sign for their participation. They were also

given BASC-2 TRS forms in an envelope to fill out, and were told that completing one form

would not take more than 10 minutes. They also had a week to fill out the forms. All the

participating children were gathered in the auditorium; they were first asked to sign the assent

form and then if still willing, were given the FFPI-C and BASC-2 SRP forms to fill out. This

examiner first administered the FFPI-C to the group. It did not take more than 30 minutes to

complete the self-report. After completing FFPI-C, the students raised their hand to get the

BASC-2 self report questionnaire which again did not take more than 30 minutes to complete.

Administration, however, was not timed. After completing both the protocols, the students were

allowed to leave the auditorium and were given his/her gift for participating in the study. (If they

decided to withdraw from participation at any point, they still got their gift of pencils.) Finally all

the test protocols were collected by the researcher from the teachers, in sealed envelopes and

they were scored and analyzed by the principal investigator herself.
