 Introduction: The Self-completed Occupational Performance Index (SOPI) was developed to assess the quality of clients' participation in occupational therapy. SOPI has been studied in relation to preventive occupational therapy, but not as it applies to the community-dwelling elderly using rehabilitation services. Aim: This study examined transferability of the SOPI among community-dwelling elderly using rehabilitation services. Methods: 217 people (mean;76.2±9.0) participated in the study, and evaluated the SOPI questionnaire, SF-8 and face sheets. We analyzed the psychometric properties of SOPI according to concurrent validity, structural validity, hypothesis inspection, internal consistency and item properties. Results: From the results of concurrent validity, structural validity and hypothesis inspection, SOPI correlated positively with SF-8 and the oblique model of the three factors. These results were consistent with preceding studies. However, the reversibility of SOPI may need to be explored, as changes in the item order of SOPI results from internal consistency and IRT. Conclusion: This study offers evidence that occupational therapists can assess and intervene toward the quality of the occupational participation in community-dwelling elderly.
