The short-term stability of the survey version of CAPE.


One hundred elderly women were assessed on two occasions, one week apart, on the survey version of CAPE. Although test-retest correlations were high, the dependency grades of 35 per cent of the sample changed on retesting by one grade, and 2 per cent by two grades, suggesting that the test may be too unstable for clinical purposes.
