  1. Total score = (sum of subtotals ÷ 24 × 100). If for a specific paper an item is deemed NA (Not Applicable), then, Total score = (sum of subtotals ÷ (2 × number of Applicable items) × 100)
  2. Quality Summary: Poor (0%–30%), Fair (31%–50%), Good (51%–70%), Very good (71%–90%), Excellent (> 90%):
  3. NA not applicable. The subsections no. 6, asks for percentage of retention/follow up. This subsection only applies to reliability test-retest studies
  4. a Item Evaluation Criteria: 1. Thorough literature review to define the research question; 2. Specific inclusion/exclusion criteria; 3. Specific hypotheses; 4. Appropriate scope of psychometric properties; 5. Sample size; 6. Follow-up; 7. The authors referenced specific procedures for administration, scoring, and interpretation of procedures; 8. Measurement techniques were standardized; 9. Data were presented for each hypothesis; 10. Appropriate statistics-point estimates; 11. Appropriate statistical error estimates; 12. Valid conclusions and clinical recommendations
