Sansano-Nadal, Oriol; Wilson, Jason J.; Martín-Borràs, Carme; Brønd, Jan Christian; Skjødt, Mathias; Caserotti, Paolo; Roqué I. Figuls, Marta; Blackburn, Nicole E.; Klenk, Jochen; Rothenbacher, Dietrich; Guerra-Balic, Myriam; Font-Farré, Manel; Denkinger, Michael; Coll-Planas, Laura; Deidda, Manuela; McIntosh, Emma; Giné-Garriga, Maria; Tully, Mark A. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
The main aim of this study was to assess the criterion validity of the Sedentary Behavior Questionnaire (SBQ) to measure SB in community-dwelling older adults using thigh-measured accelerometry as the criterion method. 801 participants (75.6 ± 6.1 years old, 57.6% females) provided valid thigh-based accelerometer data (activPAL/Axivity) and…

Kozinc, Žiga; Šarabon, Nejc – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
We examined the relationships between heights of different vertical jumps and isometric single-joint strength characteristics of ankle, knee, hip, and trunk joints in young male soccer players (n = 117). The highest peak torque and rate of torque development (RTD) outcomes were in low to moderate correlation with jump heights (r = 0.25-0.50). The…

Zhang, Zhiguang; Predy, Madison; Kuzik, Nicholas; Hewitt, Lyndel; Hesketh, Kylie D.; Pritchard, Lesley; Okely, Anthony D.; Carson, Valerie – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
This study examined the concurrent validity of a tummy time questionnaire and time-use diary against an accelerometer measure. Participants were 29 parents and their 6-month-old infants from the Early Movers project in Edmonton, Canada. Tummy time was concurrently measured using a parental questionnaire, a time-use diary, and a validated GENEActiv…

Burgueño, Rafael; Calderón, Antonio; Sinelnikov, Oleg; Medina-Casaubón, Jesús – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
This research developed and psychometrically tested the Sport Education Scale, a measure of students' perceptions of the structural features of a Sport Education season. In the first study (N = 277 students), a pool of 28 items was developed, and an exploratory factor analysis found a 7-factor solution. In the second study (N = 656 students), a…

Edwardson, Charlotte L.; Maylor, Benjamin D.; Dawkins, Nathan P.; Plekhanova, Tatiana; Rowlands, Alex V. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
The aim was to establish which postural and physical activity outcomes are comparable across different accelerometer brands worn on the thigh when processed using open-source methods. Twenty participants wore four accelerometers (Axivity, ActiGraph, activPAL, GENEActiv) for three free-living days. Postural and physical activity outputs (average…

Maïano, Christophe; Morin, Alexandre J. S.; April, Johanne; Webster, E. Kipling; Hue, Olivier; Dugas, Claude; Ulrich, Dale – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
The objective was to assess the psychometric properties of a French-Canadian version of the third edition of the Test of Gross Motor Development (TGMD-3). Participants were 127 French-speaking Canadian children. Results supported the validity-reliability of a bifactor exploratory structural equation modeling representation of the TGMD-3.…

Karaca, Ayda; Demirci, Necip; Yilmaz, Vedat; Hazir Aytar, Sinem; Can, Sema; Ünver, Evrim – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
This study aimed to determine the validity of the ActiGraph wGT3X-BT for step counts (SC) at five different body locations in laboratory settings. A total of 29 male adults participated in this study. The participants walked or ran for different speeds on the treadmill while wearing ActiGraph wGT3X-BT on their right wrist (RW), left wrist (LW),…

Kaltsonoudi, Kalliope; Tsigilis, Nikolaos; Karteroliotis, Konstantinos – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
Common method variance refers to the amount of uncontrolled systematic error leading to biased estimates of scale reliability and validity and to spurious covariance shared among variables due to common method and/or common source employed in survey-based researches. As the extended use of self-report questionnaires is inevitable, numerous studies…

Ullrich-French, Sarah; Cox, Anne E.; Huong, Christopher – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
This study expanded the State Mindfulness Scale for Physical Activity (SMS-PA) to include acceptance items to better represent core elements of mindfulness. Young adults who just participated in physical activity (N = 394) completed a survey to assess state mindfulness and theoretically relevant constructs about affect, motivation, and body image.…

Crowley, Emmet; Ng, Kwok; Mujika, Iñigo; Powell, Cormac – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
The aim of this study was to examine the trends in Olympic Games (OLY) and World Long Course Championships (WLC) across three performance categories (1st-3rd, 4th-8th and 9th-16th), and to make predictions for the 2024 OLY. Top 16 rankings were obtained for all OLY and WLC competitions between 2011 and 2019. Linear regression and forecasting…

Bateman, Andre; Myers, Nicholas D.; Chen, Sisi; Lee, Seungmin – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
Self-efficacy is a psychosocial determinant of physical activity in adults. Different scales have been used to measure physical activity self-efficacy. This review examines the theoretical and measurement quality of scales measuring physical activity self-efficacy in physical activity-promoting interventions. The search strategy was based on the…

Matthews, Evan L.; Horvat, Fiona M.; Phillips, David A. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
The YMCA step test uses a prescribed step height which is difficult in a telehealth setting. Examine a modification of the YMCA step test allowing for the use of preexisting in-home objects of variable height as the "step" in a virtual environment. Young healthy participants (n = 40) performed step tests with a small and large object of…

Pacewicz, Christine E.; Hill, Christopher R.; Lee, Seungmin; Myers, Nicholas D.; Prilleltensky, Isaac; McMahon, Adam; Pfeiffer, Karin A.; Brincks, Ahnalee M. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
In physical education and exercise science, it is common to examine mean differences between groups or to assess change across time. However, before group differences or change can be confidently examined, measurement invariance can be tested. Measurement invariance tests the equivalence of a construct across groups or across time. If measurement…

Pennell, Adam; Patey, Matthew; Fisher, Jenna; Brian, Ali – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
Falls are a significant medical and economical concern worldwide. Younger individuals with visual impairment (VI) may be more susceptible to falling and fall-related injuries when compared to peers without a VI. Self-perceived balance confidence is a psychological construct that may predict and/or mediate fall- or other health-related outcomes in…

Palmieri-Smith, Riann M.; Garcia, Steven A.; Rodriguez, Kazandra M.; Krishnan, Chandramouli – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2022
Electrically evoked torque at rest (i.e., the torque produced from supramaximal stimuli applied to a resting muscle) has been shown to be related to muscle size in healthy adults, but this relationship has not been evaluated in pathological populations where atrophy is present. This study aims to evaluate the relationship between the electrically…
