Abstract: In this presentation, the theories underlying construction and validation of clinical instruments will be explained. The classical model of validity which is commonly adopted by clinicians and researchers in rehabilitation medicine will be illustrated by our prior work on validating the Barthel Index and Cognistat for use in Chinese population. The concepts of structural and item analyses will be further elaborated with the Chinese version of Elderly Mobility Scale and URICA for chronic diseases. The importance and pitfalls of gathering evidence on reliability will be covered by our work on work capacity evaluation systems - BTE and VALPAR. The presentation will be concluded with comments on newer developments in measurement such as item response models.
