Measurement intervals

In real world practice, the intervals between measurement points will always be irregular. Even if questionnaires are administered at every session, session are often scheduled at irregular intervals.

In order to compare actual scores to expected scores over time, scores can be compared to scores for other patients after a similar number of weeks of treatment. This is can be done by the dividing the treatment episodes into defined time intervals, such as two weeks. Then a score can be compared to scores for all other patients that were obtained within the same time interval (after 2-3 weeks, 4-5 weeks, 6-7 weeks, etc).
