Theme: At the JC, we will discuss an article that highlights the many aspects of evaluating the usability of psychiatric assessment instruments. The article specifically aims to test the usability of the Autism-Spectrum Quotient (AQ) questionnaire, as a tool for screening of adults with possible autism for aiding further specialist assessment. The JC will focus on how psychometric considerations and study design affect the outcome of an evaluation study, using examples also from related papers.
