Abstract [en]

The Assessment of Computer Related Skills (ACRS) was developed to aid occupational therapists in evaluating computer skills. The purpose of this study was to evaluate ACRS’ internal scale validity, person response validity, inter-rater reliability and intra-rater reliability when used for persons with rheumatic diseases. A convenience sample of 20 participants with rheumatic diseases were observed and scored using the ACRS by three raters. Based on the scores from the observations a Many-Faceted Rasch (MFR) model of the ACRS was generated. Eighty-one percent of skill items, 90% of participants, all tasks, and all raters demonstrated goodness-of-fit to the MFR model of the ACRS. The results showed evidence of validity and reliability, which indicates that ACRS has the potential to be used to assess computer abilities of persons with rheumatic diseases.
