  • Karnofsky score of 80-100% = ECOG performance status of 0 or 1
  • Karnofsky score of 60-70% = ECOG performance status of 2
  • Karnofsky score of 10-50% = ECOG performance status of 3 or 4
  • Karnofsky score of 0% = ECOG performance status of 5

This scale may be used with children age 1-16 who have any type of malignancy. It may be used for both inpatients & outpatients, and for patients undergoing active treatment as well as long-term follow-up. It is rated by parents based on their child's activity over the past week. Parents fill out the assessment based on the directions on the form, and the form is readministered over time to assess for changes in performance status.

"Think about your child's play and activity over the past week. Think about both good days and bad days. Average out this period. Now read the descriptions and pick the one that best describes your child's play during the past week."
