The Community Reintegration of Injured Service Members (CRIS) measure has three scales that measure extent of, perceived limitations in, and satisfaction with community integration. The long length of the CRIS may be a barrier to its widespread use. This study developed and evaluated a shorter community reintegration measure that uses computer-adaptive testing (CAT): the CRIS-CAT. The CRIS-CAT showed promising measurement properties and is recommended for community reintegration assessment. Use of the CRIS-CAT will benefit Veterans by providing an efficient way to monitor and assess their community integration.
