Because the RDFS is based on a 0- to 10-point numerical rating scale that queries each subject to longitudinally quantify their absolute level of fatigue, RDFS is constructed to have good face validity as a direct measure of fatigue severity.
To demonstrate more clearly the statistical reliability of the RDFS compared with the reliability of FSS and MFIS, we compared the ICCs for each of the fatigue measurement scales.
Unlike the single retrospective measurements of fatigue obtained by the FSS and MFIS, the RDFS prospectively captures real-time fatigue over multiple time points.
