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.
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.
- Administer the AMPS by observing a person perform at least two familiar and relevant ADL tasks
- Interview the person following each ADL task performance using the ACQ-OP Interview Guide
- Score the AMPS
- Score the 11 ACQ-OP items by comparing what the person reported during the interview with your AMPS ratings
- Use the OTAP software to generate an ACQ-OP Results Report that includes an ACQ-OP discrepancy measure
- 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
“It is very important for me to know how my client perceives his or her quality of ADL task performance, and not just rely on my own observation.”
