Abstract

Objective: To develop a computerized adaptive testing system of the Fugl-Meyer motor scale (CAT-FM) to efficiently and reliably assess motor function in patients with stroke. Design: First, a simulation study was used to develop and examine the psychometric properties of the CAT-FM. Second, a field study was employed to determine the administration efficiency of the CAT-FM. Setting: One medical center and 1 teaching hospital. Participants: Patients' responses (n=301) were used for the simulation study; 49 patients participated in the field study. Interventions: Not applicable. Main Outcome Measures: The 2 CAT-FM item banks (upper extremity and lower extremity) include 37 items from the original Fugl-Meyer scale. The reliability, validity, and responsiveness of the CAT-FM were determined by the simulation study. Results: Two stopping rules (reliability
