Mental health--Evaluation

Abstract

Research is presented assessing the reliability of a mental health level-of-functioning scale (FAST). Additional issues are covered in the introduction concerning the FAST Scale's validity as an evaluation method. Two experiments involving assessment of the FAST Scale's reliability were carried out in community mental health center settings. Coefficients of reliability range from .43 in one area to .92 in another area. It is concluded that the FAST Scale has sufficient reliability when compared to other methods currently in use for the same purposes.
