By collecting “participation” data on each of the groups and comparing mean scores across the groups via ANOVA one can determine if the measure can discriminate as hypothesized. Finally, because the “participation” measure is to be based on the ICF framework, validity could also be evaluated by testing hypotheses that support the conceptual framework. Environmental or personal factors that assist or limit the stroke survivor in terms of participating could be explored, as could the relationships between “activities” or “body structures and functions” and “participation”.

Scales that require interactions between the subject and the rater may not lend themselves to this approach and multiple tests need to be conducted. In this situation issues related to the testing intervals are again important. The intra-class correlation coefficient (Cronbach, 1957) is the preferred test statistic as it assesses agreement, using estimates of variance obtained from an analysis of variance (ANOVA). Different versions, reflecting different test situations, are available (Portney and Watkins, 2000).
