The Foot and Ankle Ability Measure (FAAM) is a patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) designed to be a comprehensive assessment of physical. The FAAM is a self-report measure that assesses physical function of individuals with lower leg, foot, and ankle Patient Reported Outcomes. The Foot and Ankle Ability Measure (FAAM) is a region-specific, non–disease- specific outcome instrument that possesses many of the clinimetric qualities.

When refering to evidence in academic writing, you should always try to reference the primary original source. That is usually the journal article where the information was first stated.
In most cases Physiopedia articles are a secondary source and so should not be used as references. Physiopedia articles are best used to find the original sources of information see the references list at the bottom of the article.

Original Editors – Niels Verbeeck. The Foot and Ankle Ability Measure FAAM is a self-report outcome instrument developed to assess physical function for individuals with foot and ankle related impairments.
This self-report outcome instrument outcomme available in English, German, French and Persian. The Foot and Ankle Ability Measure is a item questionnaire divided into two subscales: The Sports subscale assesses more difficult tasks that are essential to sport, it is a population-specific subscale designed for athletes   .
Item score totals, which range from 0 to 84 for the ADL subscale and 0 to 32 for the Sports subscale, were transformed to percentage scores.
Validity of the Foot and Ankle Ability Measure in Athletes With Chronic Ankle Instability
Eechaute et al  level 1 concluded that the FADI and FAAM were the most appropriate, patient-assessed instruments to quantify functional disabilities in patients with chronic ankle instability, but reported that there is need for further research of the FAAM in a specific population of patients with CAI   . The ADL and Sports subscales are scored separately.
The score on each of the items are added together to get the item score total. The total number of items with a response is multiplied by 4 to get the highest potential score. If the subject answers all 21 items, the highest potential score is If one item is not answered the highest score is 80, if two are not answered the total highest score is 76, etc.
The item score total is divided by the highest potential score. This value is then multiplied by to get a percentage.
A higher score represents a higher level of physical function. The score on each item are added together to get the item score total.
The number of items with a response is multiplied by 4 fwam get the highest potential score. If the subject answers all 8 items the highest potential score is 32, ojtcome one item is not answered the highest potential score is 28, if two are not answered the highest potential score is 24, etc.
This value is multiplied by to get a percentage. Evidence for content validity, construct validity, reliability, and responsiveness was mmeasure among subjects who were separated into a group expected to change and a group expected to remain stable. The stability of a score with repeated measurements over time is defined as test-retest reliability. Intraclass correlation coefficient and SEM values are commonly used to estimate test-retest reliability.
Evidence for reliability was obtained using the group that was expected to remain stable. Content validity The specific items on the instrument and what they measure determine the evidence that is based on content.
The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health model can be measuer to define item content. According to this model, items can potentially measure the domains of 1 body structure and function and 2 activity and participation.
Evidence of validity for the Foot and Ankle Ability Measure (FAAM).
Construct validity While evidence for content relates directly to what the measurw measure, evidence for construct validity assesses how the scores on the instrument relate to other measures of the construct. The content on or accessible through Physiopedia is for informational purposes only.
