Myers, Nicholas D.; Lee, Seungmin; Kostelis, Kimberly T. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2018
The purpose of this annual report is to provide a summary of measurement in physical education and exercise science-related activities in 2017. A recent trend for an annual increase in manuscript submissions to measurement in physical education and exercise science continued in 2017. Twenty-nine countries were represented (i.e., corresponding…

Hackett, Daniel A.; Davies, Timothy B.; Ibel, Denis; Cobley, Stephen; Sanders, Ross – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2018
This study examined the predictive ability of the medicine ball chest throw and vertical jump for muscular strength and power in adolescents. One hundred and ninety adolescents participated in this study. Participants performed trials of the medicine ball chest throw and vertical jump, with vertical jump peak power calculated via an estimation…

Humphries, Brendan; Stanton, Robert; Hayman, Melanie; Borgelt, Hanna; Scanlan, Aaron – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2018
This study aimed to establish the reliability of a novel netball task using a single-leg horizontal jump (SLHJ). Twenty-five females 18-39 years performed SLHJs for maximal displacement and ground-reaction forces. Participants completed two trials for each leg on two occasions separated by 6 weeks of pre-season netball training. Paired sample…

Rosenkranz, Richard R.; Geller, Karly S.; Duncan, Mitch J.; Caperchione, Cristina M.; Vandelanotte, Corneel; Maeder, Anthony J.; Savage, Trevor N.; Van Itallie, Anetta; Kolt, Gregory S. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2018
This cross-sectional study of 504 community-dwelling Australian adults (328 females, 176 males, mean age 50.8 ± 13.0 years) sought to examine the reliability and validity of measurement scales for physical activity (PA) self-efficacy and outcome expectations. Participants completed demographic and anthropometric measurements, and a 23-item…

Driller, Matthew; Brophy-Williams, Ned; Walker, Anthony – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2017
The purpose of the present study was to determine the reliability of a 5km run test on a motorized treadmill. Over three consecutive weeks, 12 well-trained runners completed three 5km time trials on a treadmill following a standardized warm-up. Runners were partially-blinded to their running speed and distance covered. Total time to complete the…

Rudd, J. R.; Barnett, L. M.; Farrow, D.; Berry, J.; Borkoles, E.; Polman, Remco – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2017
This study evaluated the effectiveness of an 8-week gymnastics curriculum on children's movement competence and their physical self-concept. There were 113 children (46% girls, 49% intervention) with a mean age of 9.4 years (SD = 1.8) that participated. Intervention children underwent 8 weeks of gymnastics and the comparison group continued with…

Kringen, Nina L.; Healy, Genevieve N.; Winkler, Elisabeth A. H.; Clark, Bronwyn K. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2016
This study examined the accuracy of self-attachment of the activPAL activity monitor. A convenience sample of 50 participants self-attached the monitor after being presented with written material only (WMO) and then written and video (WV) instructions; and completed a questionnaire regarding the acceptability of the instructional methods.…

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.…

Novak, Andrew R.; Dascombe, Benjamin J. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2016
This study aimed to determine if the Garmin Vector (Schaffhausen, Switzerland) power meter produced acceptable measures when compared with the Schoberer Rad Messetechnik (SRM; Julich, Germany) power meter across a range of high-intensity efforts. Twenty-one well-trained cyclists completed power profiles (seven maximal mean efforts between 5 and…

Cerin, Ester; Leslie, Eva; Owen, Neville; Bauman, Adrian – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2008
This study examined validity evidence for the Australian version of the Neighborhood Environment Walkability Scale (NEWS-AU). A stratified two-stage cluster sampling design was used to recruit 2,650 adults from Adelaide (Australia). The sample was drawn from residential addresses within eight high-walkable and eight low-walkable suburbs matched…

Hands, Beth; Parker, Helen; Larkin, Dawne – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2006
Many behavior patterns that impact on physical activity experiences are established in early childhood, therefore it is important that valid, reliable, and feasible measures are constructed to identify children who are not developing appropriate and healthy activity habits. In this study, measures of physical activity derived by accelerometry and…
