Background and Objectives: “Meaningful Activity Participation Assessment” (MAPA) questionnaire is a suitable tool for examining the frequency and meaningfulness of 28 activities. The aim of this study was to assess the face and content validity of the Persian version of MAPA for older adults.
Methods: The face validity was assessed qualitatively using interviews and quantitively using the item impact method (IIM) with 15 elderly aged 65-90 years old and MMSE≥21. They measured the suitability simplicity and comprehensibility of the items. To assess the content validity using CVR and CVI, 15 occupational therapists (eight PhD. Candidates, seven masters) who had more than five years of experience in geriatric rehabilitation and aged>30 years old took part.
Results: All items of MAPA using IIM were more than 1.5. The CVR scores for each item were 0.6-1 (the cut-off base on Lawshe table 0.49). The average CVR value of MAPA was 0.84. The I-CVI of the Persian version of MAPA ranged from 0.86-1. All items scored higher than 0.79. The S-CVI/UA was 0.58 and the S-CVI/Ave was 0.96.
Conclusion: The Persian version of MAPA has acceptable content and face validity in the elderly. Investigation of test-retest and internal consistency reliability and construct validity (convergent, divergent, and factor analysis) is suggested.
