BACKGROUND It has been suggested that performance measures of functional status have several advantages over self-report measures for both clinical and research purposes, including: greater patient acceptability, interpretability, reproducibility, sensitivity to change, and the focus on actual ability rather than presumed capability. This article challenges this assumed superiority of "objective," "behavioral" measures by directly comparing self-assessments and blindly rated performance… Expand
Cognitive Correlates of Functional Performance in Older Adults: Comparison of Self-Report, Direct Observation, and Performance-Based Measures
TLDR
It is suggested that a self-report of IADLs and the performance-based EPT may be useful measures for assessing everyday functional status in cognitively healthy older adults. Expand
Reproducibility of performance-based and self-reported measures of functional status.
TLDR
In the elderly male subjects, performance tests and self-reported disabilities had moderate to good reproducibility, with the exception of the test for standing balance, which was poorly reproducible. Expand
Measures of functional status in community-dwelling elders
TLDR
Evaluating two performance-based measures of functional status and assessing their correlation with self-report measures found them to be internally consistent and correlated highly with each other and moderately with questionnaire- based measures. Expand
Cognitive Correlates of Functional Abilities in Individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment: Comparison of Questionnaire, Direct Observation, and Performance-Based Measures
TLDR
Findings indicate that differing methods for evaluating functional status are not assessing completely overlapping aspects of everyday functioning in the MCI population, and cognitive predictors did not explain a significant amount of variance in the performance-based measures. Expand
Bridging the gap between performance-based assessment and self-reported everyday functioning: An ecological momentary assessment approach
TLDR
The findings suggest that IIV and self-report measures of functional status and cognitive failures may capture a real-world cognitive capacity that fluctuates over time and with context; one that may not easily be captured by objective, performance-based measures designed to assess optimal function. Expand
Performance measures rather than self-report measures of functional status predict home care use in community-dwelling older adults
TLDR
It is suggested that standardized performance measures—in particular, the PASS—are more predictive of formal HC use in community-dwelling older adults than self-report measures. Expand
Comparison of a Self-Reported and a Performance-Based Assessment of Mobility in the Hispanic Established Population for Epidemiological Studies of the Elderly
In this study, the authors employ data from the Hispanic Established Population for Epidemiological Studies of the Elderly to examine the concordance between a self-reported measure of the ability toExpand
The reliability of a self-reported measure of disease, impairment, and function in persons with spinal cord dysfunction.
TLDR
This instrument provides a new, rapid way to obtain information relative to the differing levels of the disablement process and is suitable for persons with spinal cord disease. Expand
Validity, Reliability, and Diagnostic Accuracy of Ratings of Perceived Exertion to Identify Dependence in Performing Self-care Activities in Older Women
TLDR
RPE of constant-load physical tasks was valid, reliable, and accurate in identifying dependence in performing self-care activities in older women; therefore, it is possible to use the perceived exertion to identify dependence inPerceived exertion in performing activities of daily living in Older women.

A Comparison of Self-Report versus Observation of Performance Using the Assessment of Living Skills and Resources (ALSAR) with an Older Population
This study assessed the capacity of 15 older people to report their instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) function accurately. The Assessment of Living Skills and Resources (ALSAR) (WilliamsExpand
