Participation in Daily Activities Questionnaire (PDAQ)
Description: The PDAQ is an assessment of perceived participation in daily activities questionnaire.
Format: 26 items in 4 domains (participation in daily activities and social roles, amount of assistance, amount of difficulty, response to barriers to participation)
Scoring: Participation in daily activities and social roles is rated on a 4-point scale (Yes, as much as I want; Yes, less than I want; No, but I would like; No, I don’t want to). The amount of assistance required is rated on a 5-point scale ranging from 0 (no assistance) to 4 (a lot of assistance). The amount of difficulty is rated on a 5-point scale ranging from 0 (none) to 5 (extreme). 7 response options for barriers to participation (disability, assistance, environment, discrimination, thinking, emotional, nothing).
Administration and Burden: Approximately 5 to 10 minutes.
Psychometrics for SCI: Content validity: the PDAQ covers 91% of the activity/participation categories and 88% of the brief and comprehensive ICF Cores Sets. Reliability: Construct validity: items from the Participation in Daily Activities Questionnaire (PDAQ) and the Impact on Autonomy and Participation Questionnaire (IPA) are correlated (r=0.36±0.12; range from 0.15 to 0.67) 
QoL Concept: The PDAQ is an assessment of perceived participation in daily activities questionnaire, which corresponds to Boxes C (achievements), D (individual expectations and priorities), & E (subjective evaluations and reactions) of Dijker’s Model.
