Increased use of computerized adaptive tests (CATs) to generate outcome measures during physical therapy has stimulated questions concerning CAT implementation and score interpretation. CAT allows, based on item bank, to measure e.g. the impact of diseases on functioning and well-being, producing quick, valid and precise estimates and efficient outcomes collection. Wider application of CAT may improve usefulness and clinical interpretation of these individually tailored outcome measures and assist clinicians during clinical practice. What more, it can be applied both in hospital and outpatient physical therapy settings.
