What the literature tells us about score sheet design


Bugnon, Philippe; Heimann, Maike; Thallmair, Michaela (2016). What the literature tells us about score sheet design. Laboratory Animals, 50(6):414-417.

Abstract

Score sheets are an essential tool of animal welfare. They allow transparent assessments to be made of
animal health and behavior during animal experiments and they define interventions when deviations from
normal status are detected. As such, score sheets help to refine animal experiments as part of the 3R
(replacement, reduction and refinement) concept. This mini review aims at summarizing the scarce literature
available on score sheet design.
