A Rasch analysis was used to assess the unidimensionality and appropriateness of the scoring level of a 13-item self- perceived change in quality of life scale (CQOL) for stroke patients. A total of 158 patients with mild stroke completed the CQOL themselves at home. The results showed that a unidimensional CQOL can be created by deleting the three items related to speaking, vision, and thinking. The 4 scoring categories of the shortened scale were deemed appropriate from the analysis. These results provide preliminary evidence of the 10-item CQOL in assessing self- perceived change in quality of life in stroke patients. Further studies are needed to examine the test-retest reliability, criterion validity, and responsiveness of the 10-item CQOL in stroke patients.
