The validity of a new scoring procedure for the adl (activities of daily living) scale - In this study we analyzed the validity of a new scoring procedure for the ADL scale on a sample of 44 elderly people living in a nursing home. We administered the ADL scale using two alternative scoring procedures: 1) the traditional scoring procedure assessed on a nominal scale (dependent vs. independent), and 2) a new scoring procedure assessed on a three-step-likert scale. To gauge the validity of the two scoring procedures, we re-tested our sample after nine months. The results indicated that the new scoring procedure is more predictive than the traditional one of the psychosocial and functional status of the elderly living in a nursing home. We found similar results after a follow up of nine months.
