I'm assuming you're talking about the Connor's Rating Scale, an instrument that uses observer ratings to help assess attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder in children?  Because your son's teacher's report and your report are in two different settings, one structured (school setting) and one unstructured (home setting), both settings are taken into consideration by the professional person who evaluates them, and their differences and similarities contribute toward the final assessment.
