Rating research quality
speechBITE provides methodological quality ratings so that clinicians can more easily identify intervention studies with better internal validity (less risk of bias) and with sufficient statistical reporting so the study results are interpretable.
speechBITE uses the PEDro-P scale to assess the methodological quality of randomised controlled trials and non-randomised controlled trials. Find out more about the PEDro-P scale.
The most frequently indexed research design on speechBITE is the single-case design. Find out more about plans to evaluate the quality of single-case experimental research in speech pathology.
