The aim of this large-scale field test was to complete development of, and conduct psychometric testing for the Observable Indicators of Nursing Home Care Quality Instrument (OIQ). After extensive testing, the OIQ has been reduced to 30 reliable and discriminating items that have a conceptually coherent hierarchical factor structure. The OIQ shows acceptable interrater and test-retest reliabilities, and strong internal consistency. Generalizability Theory analyses revealed that dependability of scores can be improved by including a second site observer, or by revisiting a site. Construct validity analyses reveal an association between survey citations and nearly every subscale as well as the total score of the OIQ instrument. Known groups analysis revealed expected trends in the OIQ scores. The instrument was tested by nurses, consumers and ex-regulators. [Poster Presentation]
