Sheehan, Dwayne P.; Lienhard, Karin – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
The objective of this study was to evaluate gross motor competence and growth spurt in Canadian youth. Eighty-two children (38 boys, 44 girls) were assessed over a time period of five years. Growth rate was measured quarterly; motor competence was evaluated once per year using the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency. Peak height velocity…

Peyer, Karissa L.; Welk, Gregory J.; Eisenmann, Joey C.; Saint-Maurice, Pedro F. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
Interpreting change in Body mass index (BMI) among youth by comparison to growth charts can be difficult because of maturation-related changes. The aim of this paper was to evaluate the utility of several alternative methods for assessing change in BMI among children. Participants included 1,615 children measured for stature and body mass in first…

Chen, Han; Dai, Jun; Liu, Jiling – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2018
The study aims to examine psychometric property, measurement invariance, and latent mean difference of a Chinese version instrument of the Behavioral Regulation in Exercise Questionnaire-2 (C-BREQ-2), which originally includes five constructs. The study also examined the relationship between C-BREQ-2and participants' weekly moderate to vigorous…

Fröberg, Andreas; Berg, Christina; Larsson, Christel; Boldemann, Cecilia; Raustorp, Anders – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2017
The purpose of the current study was to investigate how combinations of different epoch durations and cut-points affect the estimations of sedentary time and physical activity in adolescents. Accelerometer data from 101 adolescents were derived and 30 combinations were used to estimate sedentary time, light, moderate, vigorous, and combined…

Ullrich-French, Sarah; Cox, Anne; Cole, Amy; Rhoades Cooper, Brittany; Gotch, Chad – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2017
Experiencing mindfulness during movement-based interventions (e.g., yoga) may help support adaptive physical activity motivation processes in youth. However, there is currently no measure for assessing state mindfulness with youth within the context of physical activity. The purpose of this study was to qualitatively and quantitatively evaluate a…

Lander, Natalie; Morgan, Philip J.; Salmon, Jo; Barnett, Lisa M. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2016
Fundamental movement skills (FMS) competence is low in adolescent girls. An assessment tool for teachers is needed to monitor FMS in this demographic. The present study explored whether the Canadian Agility and Movement Skill Assessment (CAMSA) is feasible for use by physical education (PE) teachers of Australian Year 7 girls in a school setting.…

Gråstén, Arto; Watt, Anthony – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2016
The current article provides an important insight into measurement differences between two commonly used self-reports and accelerometer-determined moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) scores within matched samples across 1 school year. Participants were 998 fifth- through eighth-grade students who completed self-reports and 76 fifth- and…

Tidén, Anna; Lundqvist, Carolina; Nyberg, Marie – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2015
This study presents the development process and initial validation of the NyTid test, a process-oriented movement assessment tool for compulsory school pupils. A sample of 1,260 (627 girls and 633 boys; mean age of 14.39) Swedish school children participated in the study. In the first step, exploratory factor analyses (EFAs) were performed in…

Lyyra, Nelli; Leskinen, Esko; Heikinaro-Johansson, Pilvikki – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2015
This study aimed to examine the validity and reliability of an instrument designed to measure student perceptions of curricular goals in physical education, the Curricular Goals in Physical Education Questionnaire. Participants were 879 Finnish students from grades 7 to 9 (412 girls, 467 boys; mean age 13.81). An exploratory factor analysis was…

Donovan, Corinne Baron; Mercier, Kevin; Phillips, Sharon R. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2015
The Centers for Disease Control have suggested that physical education plays a role in promoting healthy lifestyles. Prior research suggests a link between attitudes toward physical education and physical activity outside school. The current study provides additional evidence of construct validity through a validation across two instruments…

Richards, K. Andrew R.; Levesque-Bristol, Chantal; Templin, Thomas J. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2014
The study of teacher/coach role conflict has a long history in the physical education literature. However, only a few studies have measured the construct using psychometric instrumentation. Ryan (2008) created one such instrument, but the survey was not validated prior to use. As such, the purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the…

Erfle, Stephen E. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2014
This article examines the proclivity and performance attributes of focal students across time and activities using data from 9,345 students. Three systematic focal behavior partitions are examined: Across activities, across time, and across activities and time. A student's performance is focal if it ends in 0 or 5 for push-ups and 0 for curl-ups.…

Liu, Wenhao; Nichols, Randall A.; Zillifro, Traci D. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2013
This study compared a three-year tracking of health-related physical fitness between two comparable samples of six graders that enrolled either in a PE4life middle school ("n"?=?154) or another school with a traditional PE program ("n?"=?93) in the United States. For the cohort, the FITNESSGRAM[TM] (Cooper Institute for…

Erfle, Stephen E.; Gelbaugh, Corey M. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2013
Histograms of push-ups and curl-ups from a sample of more than 9,000 students show periodic spikes at five and 10 unit intervals. This article argues that these spikes are related to focal points, a game theoretic concept popularized by Nobel Laureate Thomas Schelling. Being focal on one test makes one more likely to be focal on the other. Focal…

Zhu, Xihe – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2013
Achievement in a domain is normally defined by the experts within the curricula. This exploratory study reported student conception of achievement in physical education, attempting to address two questions: (1) what do students expect to achieve and (2) how do students view the achievement in physical education. Students (N = 48) purposefully…
