Geriatric adults (at least 65 years of age) completed the Functional Status Questionnaire twice, first using the original paper-and-pencil format and again using one of six computer-based interactive methods. Scoring via original and computer-based methods was identical. Satisfaction with computers was high. Of the interactive methods, touchscreen required least training and questionnaire completion time and was rated most useful.
