cs-pfp-logoCS-PFP Site Set up is the key for providing valid and reliable CS-PFP test results. Measurements made using the CS-PFP have excellent test – retest reliability when measuring the same person (r=0.99) and with two different administrators directing the protocol inter-rater reliability is r=.095. This robust characteristic allows the CS-PFP to detect change in a person over time.

Excellent reliability is achieved through attention to the detailed CS-PFP site set up specifications. The comprehensive training for administration of the CS-PFP and strict adherence to the protocol and standardized instructions given to the client during the test (testing dialog) are also vital. While the specifications for the site-set up are detailed, they are readily applied in various settings. Such settings include outpatient rehabilitation clinics, hospital settings, retirement communities, graduate academic settings, and/or fitness facilities.

The links below provide diagrams on various site set up environments. The Site Specifications table shows the materials needed for establishing a site. The details for site specification are available on the CD ROM. Contact us for information on setting up the CS-PFP.

Additional materials used for training include professional video of administration of the CS-PFP in high functioning adults.

Training for safety is a major component of the CS-PFP test. A DVD of safety considerations in the administration physical functional evaluation is part of the interactive training experience.

Our data management software program – which runs through Microsoft Access – collects the multiple test variables. The data management software program is available to the new site after personnel have received the proper training.
