Rapley, M. and Ridgway, J. and Beyer, S. (1998) Staff: staff and staff: client reliability of the Schalock and Keith (1993): quality of life questionnaire. Journal of Intellectual Disability Research, 42 (1). pp. 37-43. ISSN 0964-2633Full text not available from this repository.
A small-scale study of the inter-rater and staff:client reliability of the Schalock & Keith (1993) Quality of Life Questionnaire (QOL-Q) was conducted. Whilst the sample size was small and the QOL-Q achieved an acceptable overall level of reliability, the study replicated the pattern of low staff:client concordance and staff overestimation of the independence and autonomy of clients reported by Reiter & Bendov (1996). The results are briefly discussed in the context of the ongoing debate about the utility of proxy response in the literature.
