Objective: To develop a reliable and valid clinical scale measuring the severity of ataxia. Methods: The authors devised the Scale for the Assessment and Rating of Ataxia (SARA) and tested it in two trials of 167 and 119 patients with spinocerebellar ataxia. Results: The mean time to administer SARA in patients was 14.2 ± 7.5 minutes (range 5 to 40). Interrater reliability was high, with an intraclass coefficient (ICC) of 0.98. Test-retest reliability was high with an ICC of 0.90. Internal… Expand
