This chapter will introduce the reader to an example on how an assessment instrument, based on the international classification of functioning, disability, and health can be developed. It lines out the reasoning behind the development of the new instrument as well as the methodology that was used. The instrument is a questionnaire designed to evaluate functioning in vocational rehabilitation – the work rehabilitation questionnaire (worq).in a further step the strengths and weaknesses of a generic instrument as the worq and the need for disease-specific or symptom-specific instruments and their respective roles in the vocational rehabilitation process will be discussed.in this context we also reflect on the role of environmental and personal factors when evaluating functioning in vocational rehabilitation.
