Introduction to the Supervision Rating Scale

The Supervision Rating (SRS) measures the level of supervision that a patient/subject receives from caregivers. The SRS rates level of supervision on a 13-point ordinal scale that can optionally be grouped into five ranked categories (Independent, Overnight Supervision, Part-Time Supervision, Full-Time Indirect Supervision, and Full-Time Direct Supervision). The SRS was designed to be rated by a clinician based on interviews with the subject and an informant who has observed at first hand the level of supervision received by the subject. Scoring is a one step procedure in which the clinician assigns the rating that is closest to the subject's level. Ratings are based on the level of supervision received, not on how much supervision a subject is judged or predicted to need.

Information regarding the SRS was contributed by The Institute for Rehabilitation Research. Please contact Corwin Boake, Ph.D., at for more information.
