Abstract: 
This article aimed to review outcome measure instruments of self-reported Quality of
Life (QOL) in people with Intellectual Disability (ID). Instruments were identified from five
electronic databases (CINAHL, Medline, PsychINFO, Cochrane Library, and ERIC) and handsearching
with the following inclusion criteria: (i) the paper was to evaluate the measurement
properties of QOL; (ii) measure dimensions/indicators that align with the QOL construct; (iii) the
target participants should include an ID population; (iv) the measurement should include self
report QOL ratings from the ID population; and (v) the study was published in peer-reviewed
English language literature. Nine QOL instruments met the inclusion criteria. The evidence of
reliability and validity of the included instruments varied. None of the instruments reported for
responsiveness. The Choice Questionnaire had the most evidence supporting its measurement
properties while the Maryland Ask Me! Project had the least. Future studies are needed to further
refine these instruments.
