Intro to Neuro-QoLTM

Neuro-QoL measures quantify the physical, mental, and social effects experienced by adults and children living with neurological conditions.

Adult Assessment

Pediatric Assessment


neuro qol ped domain framework 3.29.21

Short Forms and Computer Adaptive Tests

Neuro-QoL offers two types of instruments.

  • Short Forms: fixed set of 5-10 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. Learn more about CATs>> or try out a CAT>>

Neuro-QoL is Appropriate for Use Across a Range of Neurological Conditions

Neuro-QoL measures can be used in a range of adult and pediatric neurological conditions including but not limited to: stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), traumatic brain injury (TBI), military deployment–related traumatic brain injury (MDR-TBI), spinal cord injury (SCI), and Huntington’s disease (HD).

Neuro-QoL measures can be administered alongside PROMIS® or NIH Toolbox® measures that assess other aspects of health and function.
