While screening for dementia in patients without symptoms is not recommended by the United States Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF), screening in those presenting with symptoms may help patients and caregivers prepare for the future. When selecting which screening tool to use in a primary care office, one needs to consider practicality, feasibility, applicability, and psychometric properties. The MIS, MiniCog, PhotoTest, and GPCOG have been found to have short administration times, good accuracy, and applicability for a broad range of patient education and backgrounds...

Lacey Alexander, Piyaorn Wajanatinapart, Diane Lauver
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Osteoporosis (OP) is a chronic health condition with potentially serious consequences. Although preventive behaviors are important to control OP, many people do not engage in such behaviors. Although beliefs about preventive behaviors for OP influence such behaviors, we could not find psychometrically strong measures of such beliefs for use in planned research. Our initial study was done to assess the content validity, clarity, and internal consistency of belief measures regarding behaviors to control OP: perceived competence, perceived susceptibility, and perceived severity, based on relevant theories...

Stephen T Polyak, Alina A von Davier, Kurt Peterschmidt
This paper describes a psychometrically-based approach to the measurement of collaborative problem solving skills, by mining and classifying behavioral data both in real-time and in post-game analyses. The data were collected from a sample of middle school children who interacted with a game-like, online simulation of collaborative problem solving tasks. In this simulation, a user is required to collaborate with a virtual agent to solve a series of tasks within a first-person maze environment. The tasks were developed following the psychometric principles of Evidence Centered Design (ECD) and are aligned with the Holistic Framework developed by ACT...
