Currently, there is considerable interest among professionals in the field of mental retardation in developing and expanding community programs as alternatives to institutional placement for individuals with mental retardation. This paper describes the development of a second of a series of three criterion-referenced instruments designed to facilitate community integration of persons with moderate-profound mental retardation. Empirical data demonstrating reliability and validity of the instrument are presented. The results are discussed in terms of a number of assessment-related applications which are of immediate relevance to individuals undergoing training for community integration.
