Research concerned with assessing the rehabilitation outcome for the survivor of traumatic brain injury has suffered from both conceptual and procedural difficulties. The purpose of this paper is twofold: to assess the psychometric features in instruments used in assessing outcome; and to describe a test development framework based on the principles of construct validity. A construct validation approach is viewed as a means of avoiding common measurement difficulties, as well as integrating perspectives important to this population. Emphasis has been given to the cognitive/social dimensions of recovery, as it is this area which has the greatest impact for rehabilitation success.
