Movement control testing of older people in community settings: description of a screening tool and intra-rater reliability

Movement control testing of older people in community settings: description of a screening tool and intra-rater reliability
Movement control testing of older people in community settings: description of a screening tool and intra-rater reliability
Objective: To determine the intra-rater reliability of a newly developed movement screening tool; the ‘Movement control screen for older people in community settings’. The movement screening tool aims to identify movement control impairments which can potentially influence movement function. Method: Thirty one active female recreational golfers, aged 65-77 years,
carried out three movement control tests included in the screening tool. Performance was videorecorded to enable repeated ratings. Each test was evaluated by criteria which were rated as pass or fail and ratings were carried out three weeks apart to examine intra-rater reliability. Reliability was assessed using percentage agreement and Cohen’s Kappa. Results: Percentage agreement
for each test ranged from 93.0-97.3%, with an overall mean agreement of 95.5%. Kappa values for test scores ranged from 0.35-0.90. Percentage agreement for individual criteria ranged from 83.0-100.0%, with kappa values ranging from 0.00-1.00. Discussion: Acceptable intra-rater reliability was established for overall tests scores of the screening tool but certain criteria were
identified as being less reliable than others. Recommendations are made for refinement of some criteria to improve reliability of the screening tool.

Abstract

Objective: To determine the intra-rater reliability of a newly developed movement screening tool; the ‘Movement control screen for older people in community settings’. The movement screening tool aims to identify movement control impairments which can potentially influence movement function. Method: Thirty one active female recreational golfers, aged 65-77 years,
carried out three movement control tests included in the screening tool. Performance was videorecorded to enable repeated ratings. Each test was evaluated by criteria which were rated as pass or fail and ratings were carried out three weeks apart to examine intra-rater reliability. Reliability was assessed using percentage agreement and Cohen’s Kappa. Results: Percentage agreement
for each test ranged from 93.0-97.3%, with an overall mean agreement of 95.5%. Kappa values for test scores ranged from 0.35-0.90. Percentage agreement for individual criteria ranged from 83.0-100.0%, with kappa values ranging from 0.00-1.00. Discussion: Acceptable intra-rater reliability was established for overall tests scores of the screening tool but certain criteria were
identified as being less reliable than others. Recommendations are made for refinement of some criteria to improve reliability of the screening tool.
