a behavioral assessment device to quantify the levels of skills of mentally retarded and developmentally delayed people in interacting with the environment; consists of three developmentally related factors: 1) personal self-sufficiency, for example, eating, dressing; 2) community self-sufficiency, for example, shopping, communicating; 3) personal and social responsibility, for example, use of leisure time, job performance.

Though adaptive behavior has been found to correlate significantly with measures of academic achievement, the magnitude of the correlations suggests that knowledge of performance on adaptive behavior scales adds little to predictive ability beyond what is already provided by measures of intelligence.
This crucial issue concerning conception of adaptive behavior, as well as the obvious limitations of the adaptive behavior scales available at the time the NAS report was developed (1982), was not reflected adequately in this report.
