Abstract

Date Presented 4/10/2016

This study compared measurement precision across item bank and six 4- and 8-item short forms (SFs). Overall, SFs with the same numbers of items demonstrated similar precision. The findings provide empirical evidence for compromising between efficiency and precision when measuring client’s function.
