Illustration of the properties of the two item “Pour water from glass to glass” and “Place hand on top of head” (sum score 0-6 points) from the Action Research Arm Test (ARAT), to predict the patient’s ability to have the motor function required to use the paretic arm in a drinking task (FMA-UE ≥32 points), using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves. The optimal cut-off level at 2 points in the different assessments (A-D) is presented. A) the assessment at day 3 predicting day 10, B) the assessment at day 3 predicting month 1, C) the assessment at day 3 predicting month 12, D) the assessment at month 1 predicting month 12. Abbreviation: ACU, area under the curve
