The present study was designed to determine the test-retest reliability of the Missouri Adaptive Behavior Inventory (MABI), a new measure of independent functioning and learning currently in development. The MABI consists of 10 subtests administered to the examinee and an informant. Fifty individuals were administered the MABI on two separate occasions; the average interval between tests was 20 days. Overall, correlations between the first and second administrations indicated good test-retest reliability. Confidence bands for each subtest were also generated. Finally, study limitations and implication for MABI test development are discussed.
