In clinical studies, accuracy and consistency are paramount. However, accurate rating – subjective data collected from stakeholders including patients, caregivers, observers, and clinicians – can be difficult to obtain. Since ensuring rating accuracy and consistency are critical, rater training is an important step that has been proven to reduce rater errors.
Fortunately, rating inconsistency can be improved with training. From in-field training to establishing minimum standards for training and minimum standards for demonstrating competence, raters must be fully consistent and familiar with the purpose of each scale, standardized rules for administration, overview of the scale items and the scoring for each item as defined in the study’s protocols. Proper rater training ensures confidence in their results.
