Pictorial Playground-Based Physical Activity Assessment Instrument: Uses and Applications of the ADL-PP
Sinclair, Christina; Babkes Stellino, Megan
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v88 n3 p16-21 2017
Comprehensive school physical activity programs (CSPAPs) are designed to support children in getting 60 minutes of daily physical activity, as well as meet SHAPE America's goal of developing physically literate individuals who have the knowledge, skills and confidence to be physically active for a lifetime. The Activities for Daily Living-Playground Play (ADL-PP) is introduced in this article as a means to help physical education teachers and CSPAP leaders support children in meeting such goals. The ADL-PP is a pictorially based, valid and reliable instrument designed to assess children's playground-based activity behavior. The benefits, uses and applications of this instrument are introduced and described in this article. Particular attention is given to how the ADL-PP aligns with the National Standards, providing a simple, inexpensive method to help increase and document discretionary-time physical activity, as well as promote learning across the psychomotor, cognitive and affective domains.
