Article demonstrates the potential usefulness of a computer adaptive testing (CAT) assessment model with a cross-sectional sample of people with stroke from multiple rehabilitation settings. The authors contend that traditional outcome measures for people with stroke are inadequate in providing measurement scope, precision, and feasibility across rehabilitation settings. Computer adaptive testing technology is deemed to be promising solution that provides a quick, accurate measure of function that can be used across a broad range of abilities and in multiple settings in with clients with stroke receive rehabilitation services. Future evaluation studies are required in order to fully appraise the potential of CAT technology. Implementation could contribute to improved monitoring of functional changes and may ultimately lead to improved interventions for people with stroke.
