OBJECTIVE The study aim was to examine the responsiveness of the Berg Balance Scale (BBS) and that of its short form (SFBBS) at both the individual person level and the group level. DESIGN A repeated-measurements design. SETTING Hospital and home setting. PARTICIPANTS Patients with stroke. RESULTS Totals of 226, 202, and 168 patients with stroke(More)
The Medical Outcome Study Short Form 36 (SF-36) is one of the most commonly used questionnaires for monitoring the Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL) of opioid-dependent patients. However, the unidimensionality and reliability of the SF-36 have not been verified in opioid-dependent patients. The aim of this study was to examine the unidimensionality and(More)
OBJECTIVE The reliability and validity of the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ-C30) has not been examined while taking into account the correlation between subscales. The reliability of the EORTC QLQ-C30 subscales is modest, thus limiting their utility in both clinical and research settings.(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the responsiveness of the Rasch-calibrated 37-item Fugl-Meyer motor Scale with that of the 12-item Fugl-Meyer motor scale at both an individual and a group level. DESIGN Repeated-measurements design. SETTING Medical center. PARTICIPANTS Patients (N=301) 14 days after stroke. INTERVENTIONS Not applicable. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop a computerized adaptive testing system of the Fugl-Meyer motor scale (CAT-FM) to efficiently and reliably assess motor function in patients with stroke. DESIGN First, a simulation study was used to develop and examine the psychometric properties of the CAT-FM. Second, a field study was employed to determine the administration(More)
Motor skills have great impact on children in adapting to an environment and developing interpersonal interaction, cognition, and social behavior. Understanding what children can do and how they perform it is essential. Most motor tests seldom contain quality evaluation in the items or criteria. The purpose of this study was to develop and construct(More)
This study presents the random-effects rating scale model (RE-RSM) which takes into account randomness in the thresholds over persons by treating them as randomeffects and adding a random variable for each threshold in the rating scale model (RSM) (Andrich, 1978). The RE-RSM turns out to be a special case of the multidimensional random coefficients(More)
