The Boxall Profile (BP) aims at assessing the quality of adaptation of primary school pupils along with their particular difficulties of adaptation, in order to guide teacher interventions in classroom. At this time, the BP's psychometric proprieties have not been studied much. 169 boys and 23 girls ( N = 192) ranging from 6 to 13 years old (M = 9.24 years old, SD = 1.83) were assessed by their teacher using the French versions of the Boxall Profile, the Strenghts and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) and the Teacher Report Form (TRF). Confirmatory and exploratory factor analysis (CFA/EFA) and area under receiver operating characteristic curve (ROC) were all performed. The results support the fit of the first level of factorial structure and a good concurrent validity. These results suggest the effectiveness of BP in properly identifying pupils in a problematic situation. However, one has to be cautious when it comes to interpreting given scale's scores to guide the intervention.
