Abstract

This study describes the development and content validation of the Electronic Instrumental activities of daily living Satisfaction Assessment (EISA), a self-report outcome measure for assessing satisfaction with completing instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL) for People With Disabilities (PWD) using internet-Connected Assistive Devices (iCAD). For this study, an iCAD is defined as any information communication technology/electronic device or software that assists with promoting, maintaining, and/or enhancing the ability of a PWD to live independently in society. Phase 1 of development involved generating an initial item pool based on a literature review. Content validity of the EISA was computed in Phase 2 using the Qualtrics on-line research platform. Utilizing the content validity index procedure, EISA demonstrated acceptable content validity: item level (I-CVI of 0.78 or higher) and scale level (S-CVI/Ave of 0.90 or higher). EISA version 1.0 was generated in Phase 3 where it is the first of its kind outcome measure specifically designed for assessing satisfaction with completing IADL for PWD using iCAD.
