ABSTRACT

The Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with assistive Technology(QUEST 2.0) has become on important outcome assessment to capture user satisfaction in the field of assistive technology. The purpose of this study was to provide evaluation standards to indicate the improvement of individual's quality of life and possibilities of abandonment of assistive devices in Korea as well as the basic data for application of correct assistive devices by developing Korean version of Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with assistive Technology(QUEST) with foreign evaluation tool, QUEST that can grasp satisfaction by uses of assistive Technology devices and service, with systematic research method. In this study, the subjects' general characteristics were analyzed with percentage and frequency, and Cronbach's alpha coefficient and Pearson correlation coefficient were calculated for internal consistency and construct validity of the Korean QUEST. Cronbach's alpha coefficient showing internal consistency was .702, .668, and .778 on assistive technology device, assistive technology service and total QUEST. Construct validity of Korean QUEST was verified on validity as experts related to various stages of assistive devices, such as translation, back-translation, verification committee, test on understanding, etc. Correlation coefficient among sub-scales to figure out construct validity was above .505, and thus significant statistically(p<.01). With the above results, Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with assistive Technology's users were adapted using the process of valid translation such as translations suggested by various researchers, stages of back-translation, and verification of back-translation, and it was significant in construct validity, making it valuable to be used in assistive technology service facilities and agencies, etc.
