There are few scales that measure children's health and injury rates reliably. The purpose of this study was to determine the reliability and validity of the Child Health Assessment Inventory (CHAI). The CHAI is a biophysiological, structured scale that uses observation and interviews with parents and caregivers to assess the health and injury rates of children 3-5 years of age. The CHAI can be used as an outcome measure in research and practice. Health data on the children includes upper respiratory illness symptoms, rashes, medication and general health status. Injury data includes type of injury, area of the body injured, time of day, cause, treatment, and the environment where the injury occurred. The scale was examined for reliability and validity. Inter-rater reliability was estimated on two samples (n=35, n=47) of children aged 3-5 years old. Pearson product-moment correlations ranged from r = 0.92-0.99. Content validity was established by a literature review and a panel of experts using a Content Validity Index. Three experts were asked to rate each item for content and clarity on a 0 to 4, four point Likert scale. Items with a CVI less than 4.0 were revised or deleted. Inter-rater reliability estimates continue on a larger sample.
