Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

This project identifies the importance of having advanced training for administration of assessments to have accurate and reliable results. With the identified gap in training for the ARAT assessment, a training program was created and tested pre- and posttraining with 15 participants. The interrater reliability results indicated that posttraining scores had greater accuracy in scoring. These results indicate a positive effect on accuracy of assessments with the application of training.
