ACQ-OP Overview

Measure the extent of the difference between a person’s reported quality of ADL task performance and what you, the occupational therapist, observed. Use the ACQ-OP to extend the impact of the Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS) in your occupation-centered practice.

  • Use with anyone over the age of 3 years, regardless of diagnosis
  • Learn the person’s perspective on his or her ADL task performance
  • Standardized on an international sample of more than 1,200 people

Administering the ACQ-OP

The ACQ-OP takes minutes to administer and score, resulting in a reliable and valid measure of the discrepancy between a person’s perspective on his or her quality of ADL task performance and what you, the occupational therapist, observed.
  1. Administer the AMPS by observing a person perform at least two familiar and relevant ADL tasks
  2. Interview the person following each ADL task performance using the ACQ-OP Interview Guide
  3. Score the AMPS
  4. Score the 11 ACQ-OP items by comparing what the person reported during the interview with your AMPS ratings
  5. Use the OTAP software to generate an ACQ-OP Results Report that includes an ACQ-OP discrepancy measure
  6. Plan interventions that account for the person’s perspective and the areas of discrepancy and/or agreement between what you observed and what the person reported
