OBJECTIVE. Our objective was to perform initial psychometric analysis of the Multiple Errands Test Home Version (MET–Home), which was designed to assess the influence of poststroke executive dysfunction on in-home task performance.
METHOD. We examined the reliability and validity of the MET–Home in adults with stroke (n = 23) and individually matched control participants (n = 23). All participants completed a series of assessments during a single in-home visit.
RESULTS. Notable differences in MET-Home subscores were discovered between participants with stroke and control participants. Participants with stroke omitted more tasks, broke more rules, passed by tasks more often, and were less efficient than matched control participants. The MET–Home demonstrated evidence of adequate internal consistency, excellent interrater reliability, and significant moderate associations with several tests.
CONCLUSION. This preliminary study suggests that the MET–Home differentiates between adults with stroke and matched control participants. The MET–Home provides evidence of initial reliability and validity among adults with stroke.
