Inter-rater reliability analysis of the Action Research arm test
This article compares the ability of three instruments (Box and Block Test [BBT], Nine Hole Peg Test [NHPT], and Action Research Arm Test [ARAT]) to detect changes (responsiveness) and to relate to motor impairment, daily function, and quality of life after stroke rehabilitation (concurrent validity).
We found similar results when comparing the outcome measures with clinical test results: Nine Hole Peg Test (p > 0.09) and Action Research Arm Test (p > 0.17).
