Test-Retest Reliability of a Survey to Measure Transport-Related Physical Activity in Adults
Badland, Hannah; Schofield, Grant
Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, v77 n3 p386-390 Sep 2006
The present research details test-retest reliability of a newly developed, telephone-administered TPA survey for adults. This instrument examines barriers, perceptions, and current travel behaviors to place of work/study and local convenience shops. Demonstrated test-retest reliability of the Active Friendly Environments-Transport-Related Physical Activity (AFE-TPA) survey is essential for researchers to ensure confidence in reliability of scores from the instrument's findings. Findings showed that the AFE-TPA survey reported almost perfect test-retest reliability. It also provides insight to travel behaviors. (Contains 2 tables.)
