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…

Heemsoth, Tim; Retelsdorf, Jan – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2018
Educational research emphasizes the advantages of multimethod designs. However, if the design comprises different perspectives, the question of construct validity emerges. We related this question to student and teacher ratings of student-student relations, which are of high interest in research on physical education. In our study, 2,160 students…

Wright, Paul M.; Irwin, Carol – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2018
National content standards in PE address responsibility; however, learning outcomes and teacher effectiveness in this area remain poorly defined. This study employed the Social and Emotional Learning framework and a teaching personal and social responsibility (TPSR) model fidelity instrument to address this gap. Our purpose was to examine the…

Sánchez-Oliva, David; Kinnafick, Florence-Emilie; Smith, Nathan; Stenling, Andreas – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2018
This study aimed to validate an English version of Basic Psychological Needs Support Questionnaire (BPNSQ) and the Basic Psychological Needs in Physical Education Scale (BPN-PE) in the physical education context. Participants included 453 students aged between 12 and 17 years. For the BPNSQ, the hypothesized three-factor solution displayed high…

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 E.; Cooper, Brittany Rhoades – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2016
Previous research has used cluster analysis to examine how social physique anxiety (SPA) combines with motivation in physical education. This study utilized a more advanced analytic approach, latent profile analysis (LPA), to identify profiles of SPA and motivation regulations. Students in grades 9-12 (N = 298) completed questionnaires at two time…

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…

Fletcher, Richard B.; Crocker, Peter – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2014
The present study investigated the social physique anxiety scale's factor structure and item properties using confirmatory factor analysis and item response theory. An additional aim was to identify differences in response patterns between groups (gender). A large sample of high school students aged 11-15 years (N = 1,529) consisting of n =…

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.…
