Client Assessment Measures in Rehabilitation. Michigan Studies in Rehabilitation Utilization Series: 5.
Harrison, Don K.; And Others
This collection of client outcome measures is designed to enhance the program evaluation capacity of state vocational rehabilitation agencies and to assist program evaluators in the selection of appropriate instruments through information about client measures in the areas of functional limitations, client change, client satisfaction, and client retention of benefits. The introduction discusses the selection process for inclusion of instruments in this monograph, indicating that the 40 instruments vary in terms of characteristics measured, intended clientele, developmental origin, and intended setting. Each instrument summary contains information on the developer, purpose, description, use, administration, scoring, reliability, validity, advantages, limitations, references, availability and, in most cases, sample items or the instrument itself. Measures are classified according to: (1) employability; (2) independent living skills; (3) client perceptions; (4) client satisfaction; and (5) miscellaneous. Within each category, instrument summaries appear alphabetically by title. Indexes are also provided by instrument title and by developers' names and affiliations. (Author/NRB)
