Validy and Reliability of the Eating Assessment Tool (EAT-10)

Validy and Reliability of the Eating Assessment Tool (EAT-10)

I found this article at  EBSCOhost Publishing, written by  Peter C. Belafsky, MD, PhD; Debbie A. Mouadeb, MD; Catherine J. Rees, MD; Jan C. Pryor, MA; Gregory N. Postma, MD; Jacqueline Allen, MBChB, FRACS; Rebecca J. Leonard, PhD  (copyright 2008):


This paper discusses the findings of a study on the Eating Assessment Tool (EAT-10) used on patients with dysphagia. The EAT-10 showed great reliablity, test-retest reproducibility, and criterion-based validity. The data suggest an EAT-10 score of 3 or higher is abnormal. Not only can this assessment tool be used for dysphagia but also other swallowing disorders.
