ABSTRACT

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to psychometrically test the Evaluation of Daily Activity

Questionnaire in seven musculoskeletal conditions.

Materials and methods: One thousand and two hundred people with ankylosing spondylitis; osteoarthritis;

systemic lupus erythematosus; systemic sclerosis; chronic pain; chronic upper limb disorders; or

Primary Sj€ogren’s syndrome completed the Evaluation of Daily Activity Questionnaire, Health Assessment

Questionnaire and Short-Form Health Survey v2. We examined internal construct validity using Rasch analysis,

internal consistency, concurrent validity with the Health Assessment Questionnaire and Short-Form

Health Survey v2. Participants repeated the Evaluation of Daily Activity Questionnaire to assess test–retest

reliability.

Results: The 12 domains satisfied Rasch model expectations for fit, local dependency, unidimensionality

and invariance by age and gender, in each musculoskeletal condition. Internal consistency was consistent

with individual use (Cronbach’s a>0.90); concurrent validity was strong (Health Assessment

Questionnaire: rs.0.60–0.92; Short-Form Health Survey v2 Physical Function: rs.0.61 to 0.91) and test–

retest reliability excellent (Intra-Class Correlation Coefficient(2,1).0.77–0.96).

Conclusion: The Evaluation of Daily Activity Questionnaire satisfied Rasch model requirements for construct

validity and has good reliability and validity in each MSC. The Evaluation of Daily Activity

Questionnaire can be used as a measure of everyday activity in practice and research with people with

musculoskeletal conditions.
