The COSMIN study reached international consensus on taxonomy, terminology, and definitions of measurement properties for health-related patient-reported outcomes.
The COSMIN checklist for assessing the methodological quality of studies on measurement properties of health status measurement instruments: an international Delphi study
The resulting COSMIN checklist could be useful when selecting a measurement instrument, peer-reviewing a manuscript, designing or reporting a study on measurement properties, or for educational purposes.
The Lower Extremity Functional Scale (LEFS): scale development, measurement properties, and clinical application. North American Orthopaedic Rehabilitation Research Network.
The LEFS is reliable, and construct validity was supported by comparison with the SF-36, and the sensitivity to change of the LEFS was superior to that of theSF-36 in this population.

These choices for the design requirements and preferred statistical methods for which no evidence is available in the literature or on which the Delphi panel members had substantial discussion are explained.
Interpreting Change Scores for Pain and Functional Status in Low Back Pain: Towards International Consensus Regarding Minimal Important Change
Proposed MIC values are not the final answer but offer a common starting point for future research and facilitate the use of these measures in clinical practice and the comparability of future studies.
Measuring Physical Impairment and Disability With the Chedoke‐McMaster Stroke Assessment
This study confirms that the Chedoke-McMaster Stroke Assessment can be used with confidence as both a clinical and a research tool that can discriminate among subjects and evaluate patient outcomes.

The results show that the described series of hop tests provide a reliable and valid performance-based outcome measure for patients undergoing rehabilitation following ACL reconstruction, and these findings support the use and facilitate the interpretation ofHop tests for research and clinical practice.
Assessing Disability and Change on Individual Patients: A Report of a Patient Specific Measure
The measure was assessed's performance on 63 out-patients with mechanical low back pain to develop a measure that would be applicable to a number of conditions or disabilities.

The test-retest estimates of the 6MWT, ST, and the SPWT met the requisite standards for making decisions at the individual patient level and were responsive to detecting deterioration and improvement in the early postoperative period.
Health status measures: strategies and analytic methods for assessing change scores.
It is suggested that some designs and analytic strategies are more adept than others at assessing change and that these methods should be considered when planning sensitivity-to-change studies.
