Intro to PROMIS®
PROMIS developed self-report measures for adults for the functions, symptoms, behaviors, and feelings shown here. Measures are applicable to the general population and to those with chronic conditions.
PROMIS developed pediatric measures for the functions, symptoms, behaviors, and feelings shown here. Self-report measures are used for children ages 5-17. Parent proxy-report measures are used for children ages 5-17. Measures are applicable to the general population and to those with chronic conditions.
Short Forms, Computer Adaptive Tests, and Profiles
PROMIS offers multiple types of instruments.
- Short Forms: fixed set of 4-10 items or questions for one domain
- Computer Adaptive Tests (CATs): items are dynamically selected for administration from an item bank based upon the respondent’s previous answers. Usually 4-12 items with a high level of measurement precision. Try out a CAT!
- Profiles: fixed collection of short forms from multiple domains
PROMIS is Appropriate for Use Across a Range of Patient Populations
PROMIS measures can be used in the general population and with adults and pediatric populations with a chronic condition(s). Learn more about the advantages of universally-relevant versus disease-attributed measures.
