This module provides an overview of 30 of the most commonly used assessment tools in stroke rehabilitation research and practice (Chapter 21 of the EBRSR). For each outcome measure the following five questions are addressed: 1) what does it measure, 2) what is the scale, 3) what are the key scores, 4) what are its strengths, and 5) what are its limitations. A summary chart relating to the reliability, validity, and responsiveness of each measure is also presented.
