Abstract

[Purpose] This study examined the reliability of a clinical ability evaluation table developed in a previous study with the aim of clarifying the abilities necessary for therapists to independently implement their duties. [Subjects and Methods] Forty-eight physical therapists with less than 2 years of clinical experience were targeted for evaluation, 48 main supervisors, and 48 sub-supervisors, 144 in total, were studied. [Results] The total score was lower when the evaluation was conducted by the target therapists themselves than when it was conducted by the main or sub-supervisors. Regarding the reliability of the total scores for the entire scale and each category, values representing the intra-rater reliability were higher when the evaluation was conducted by the target therapists or main supervisors, while there were marked differences between high and low values for each item. Regarding the inter-rater reliability, both the total scores for the entire scale and each category, as well as values for each item, were low. [Conclusion] Values representing the intra-rater reliability of the study table were low, indicating the necessity of further improvement.
