Once an item's questions have been answered and its rating of Strength, Area Needing Improvement, or NA assigned, reviewers must completed the Reason for Rating and Documentation section. This part of the OSRI provides space to write a general statement justifying and clarifying the item's calculated rating. This general statement, referred to as a Main Reason statement, is followed by a number of specific follow-up questions designed to help further clarify the rationale for the assigned rating.
Note that, even if all 23 of the OSRI's items and all seven outcomes have been rated, the instrument is not considered completed and ready for finalization until all of its rating documentation has also been completed. For information on completing rating documentation in the automated instrument, see Module 6.4.3: Item Ratings and Rating Documentation.
