Grant, Chris; Beach, Tyson A. C.; Hogg-Johnson, Sheilah; Chivers, Michael; Howarth, Samuel J. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2020
This study evaluated whether real-time applied load feedback and a predefined applied load limit improved inter-session reliability and measurement error of passive glenohumeral rotation range-of-motion measurements. Twenty-one male recreational overhead athletes completed two data collection sessions, approximately 1-week apart. Measurements of…

Fenemor, Stephen P.; Gill, Nicholas D.; Sims, Stacy T.; Beaven, C. Martyn; Driller, Matthew W. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2020
This study compared criterion to minimally invasive, practical measures of core (T[subscript c]) and skin (T[subscript sk) temperature during 30 min of moderate-intensity cycle exercise in a heat chamber (35°C, 60% rH). T[subscript c] was monitored using a core temperature pill (T[subscript c](Pill))] and tympanic thermometer (T[subscript c(Tymp))…

Sabourin, Camille; Trottier, Christiane; Frenette, Eric; Camiré, Martin; Drapeau, Vicky; Goulet, Claude; Lemyre, Pierre-Nicolas – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2020
Research on positive youth development and life skills in sport has gained considerable attention over the past decades. However, there is a lack of translated questionnaires examining youth development and life skills available to non-English researchers and practitioners. The purpose of this research project was to adapt in French two…

Yildiz, Mehmet; Fidan, Ugur – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2020
The aim of this investigation was to assess the reliability and validity of the Fitjump system. Fifty-seven participants (age = 22.62 [plus or minus] 5.24 years, height = 180.69 [plus or minus]12.53 cm, body mass = 75.61 [plus or minus] 9.56 kg) performed three countermovement jump (CMJ) and squat jump (SJ) with a 1-week interval for test and…

Chiu, Loren Z. F.; Daehlin, Torstein E. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2020
Males (n = 29) and females (n = 34) performed vertical jumps. Jump height was estimated from force platform data using five numerical methods and compared using intraclass correlation ([rho]), and linear and rank regression standard error of estimate ("SEE"). Take-off velocity plus center of mass height at take-off and mechanical work…

Nascimento-Junior, José Roberto Andrade do; Fortes, Leonardo de Sousa; Freire, Gabriel Lucas Morais; de Oliveira, Daniel Vicentini; Fiorese, Lenamar; Cronin, Lorcan Donal – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2020
This research adapted the Life Skills Scale for Sport (LSSS) into Portuguese and provided evidence for its construct validity. Study 1 included four translators and five academics who developed a Portuguese version of the LSSS (P-LSSS). During this study, evidence for the content and substantive aspects of construct validity was provided using an…

Mason, Jalyn; Morris, Christopher; Long, Douglas E.; Sanden, Madison N.; Flack, Kyle – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2020
Accurate body composition assessment, which includes fat mass (adipose tissue mass, FM), fat-free mass (FFM), and percent fat mass (%FM) is needed to evaluate health and treatment efficacy. The current study compared body composition estimates obtained from the Norland Elite® DXA, BodPod®, and iDXA® before and after a 12-week exercise intervention…

Children's positive perceived motor competence (PMC) provides motivation for physical activity. Theoretically young children (<8 years) have inflated PMC but as children cognitively develop, perceptions are hypothesized to decrease. This study investigated strength of PMC association over time, whether any change was negative (i.e. PMC…

Frehlich, Levi; Blackstaffe, Anita; McCormack, Gavin R. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2020
The Physical Activity Neighborhood Environment Scale (PANES) has been used internationally; however, PANES properties have not been assessed in all geographical contexts. Our objectives were to assess the reliability and validity of an online and paper version of the PANES in Canadian adults. Reliability was estimated using intraclass correlation…

Fedewa, Michael V.; Nickerson, Brett S.; Esco, Michael R. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2020
Higher relative adiposity is independently associated with adverse health consequences. As such, accurate estimates of body composition in field settings are of utmost importance. The aim of this study was to examine the validity of the Body Adiposity Index (BAI) and Relative Fat Mass (RFM) as measures of total body adiposity. BAI and RFM were…

O'Brien, Myles W.; Johns, Jarrett A.; Fowles, Jonathon R.; Kimmerly, Derek S. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2020
The activPAL is a widely-used measure of sedentary time but few studies have evaluated its ability to estimate physical activity intensity. This study determined the accuracy of the algorithm used by the activPAL to predict metabolic equivalents (METs) from cadence and a curvilinear cadence-METs equation individualized for height. Thirty-six…

Myers, Nicholas D.; Bateman, André G.; Lee, Seungmin; Silverman, Stephen – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2020
Purpose: The purpose of this manuscript is to provide a summary of Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science (MPEES)-related activities in 2019. Manuscripts submitted: In 2019 original submissions (i.e., not counting revised manuscripts) increased by ~52% as compared to 2018. Thirty nine countries were represented across the 210…

Cabral, Luana L.; Nakamura, Fábio Y.; Stefanello, Joice M. F.; Pessoa, Luiz C. V.; Smirmaul, Bruno P. C.; Pereira, Gleber – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2020
The aims of this study were to perform the cross-cultural adaptation of the Borg Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE) 6-20 Scale to Brazilian Portuguese language and to start testing its validity and reliability. After performing the cross-cultural adaptation of the Scale, concurrent and discriminative validity, and reliability were determined on a…

Barnas, Jillian; Ball, Stephen D. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2020
The purpose of this study was to validate an alternative skinfold equation for women created from dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Anthropometrics and a whole-body DXA scan were completed on 77 women (mean age: 28.0 ± 10.2 years). Four Jackson-Pollack (JP) skinfold prediction equations and the DXA criterion (DC) equation were compared to…

Alt, Tobias; Knicker, Axel J.; Severin, Jannik; Horn, Dennis; Nodler, Yannick T.; Strüder, Heiko K. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2020
Many sports demand high forces at high movement speeds. Joint power combines these two measures and is frequently analyzed by isokinetic tests. However, various concepts of assessing joint power lead to conflicting results. The aim was to examine different methods to calculate peak power during isokinetic knee tests of sixty-one healthy male…
