Hoffmann, Matt D.; Loughead, Todd. M. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
Using a multiphase approach, the purpose of the present study was to develop a psychometrically sound questionnaire to measure protégés' perceptions of peer athlete mentoring functions. Phase 1 consisted of three stages: (a) item development, (b) assessment of content validity via think-aloud interviews with peer mentored athletes, and (c)…

Clevenger, Kimberly A.; Molesky, Monroe J.; Vusich, John; Montoye, Alexander H. K. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
Despite proprietary algorithms to account for differences, output from activity trackers worn on different wrists may not be comparable because individuals vary in their reliance on each hand during free-living activities. Participants (n = 48) wore Fitbit Flex or Flex2 monitors on each wrist for three days. T tests, equivalence tests, and…

Montoye, Alexander H. K.; Mitrzyk, Joe – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
Introduction: Wearable activity monitors have been developed for jump height assessment, but the Blast Athletic Performance monitor has not yet been validated, and it remains unclear if the Blast can track changes across a sports season. Methods: Collegiate women's volleyball players (n = 20) wore the Blast monitor (waistband) while performing…

Liu, Hong-Yu; Lu, Frank J. H.; Zhang, Xue-ling; Gill, Diane L.; Chiu, Yi-Hsiang; Chan, Shih-Wei – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2018
The purpose of this study was to translate Arnold and her colleagues' (Arnold, Fletcher, & Daniels, 2013) Organizational Stressor Indicator for Sport Performers (OSI-SP) into Chinese and examine its psychometric properties with Taiwanese athletes. In study 1, the psychometric properties of the items and the underlying structure of the…

Murphy, Joseph J.; Murphy, Marie H.; MacDonncha, Ciaran; Murphy, Niamh; Nevill, Alan M.; Woods, Catherine B. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2017
The purpose of this study was to compare the validity and reliability of three short physical activity self-report instruments to determine their potential for use with university student populations. The participants (N = 155; 44.5% male; 22.9 ± 5.13 years) wore an accelerometer for 9 consecutive days and completed a single-item measure, the a…

Rex, Camille C.; Metzler, Jonathan N. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2016
The purpose of this research was to develop a measure of sport injury anxiety (SIA), defined as the tendency to make threat appraisals in sport situations where injury is seen as possible and/or likely. The Sport Injury Anxiety Scale (SIAS) was developed in three stages. In Stage 1, expert raters evaluated items to determine their adequacy. In…

Overstreet, Brittany Star; Crouter, Scott E.; Butler, George A.; Springer, Cary M.; Bassett, David R. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2016
The purpose of this article was to examine the validity of self-reported pedometer steps/day. Forty-seven participants were provided a New Lifestyles NL-2000 (NL-2000; Lees Summit, MO, USA) pedometer and a physical activity (PA) diary for 3 weeks, but not informed of the data-storing capabilities. For weeks 2 and 3, each participant was given a…

Habeeb, Christine M.; Eklund, Robert C. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2016
Dyadic interactions generate direct relationships in which interdependent sport behaviors can be destructured. The focus of this investigation was to develop a two-level performance framework and corresponding measures of individual- and dyad-level sport performance. The described procedures surrounded a male-female cheerleading paired-stunt task,…

Moore, E. Whitney G.; Brown, Theresa C.; Fry, Mary D. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2015
The purpose of this study was to develop an abbreviated version of the Perceived Motivational Climate in Exercise Questionnaire (PMCEQ-A) to provide a more practical instrument for use in applied exercise settings. In the calibration step, two shortened versions' measurement and latent model values were compared to each other and the original…

Strömmer, Sofia T.; Ingledew, David K.; Markland, David – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2015
There are existing measures of exercise motives (what people want from exercise), but corresponding measures of gains (what people get) are needed, because motives and gains could influence each other and together influence other variables. An exercise motives and gains inventory (EMGI) was developed by creating gains scales to complement existing…

Webb, Carrie; Vehrs, Pat R.; George, James D.; Hager, Ronald – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2014
The purpose of this study was to develop a step test with a personalized step rate and step height to predict cardiorespiratory fitness in 80 college-aged males and females using the self-reported perceived functional ability scale and data collected during the step test. Multiple linear regression analysis yielded a model (R = 0.90, SEE = 3.43…

McElhiney, Danielle; Kang, Minsoo; Starkey, Chad; Ragan, Brian – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2014
The purpose of the study was to improve the immediate and delayed memory sections of the Standardized Assessment of Concussion (SAC) by identifying a list of more psychometrically sound items (words). A total of 200 participants with no history of concussion in the previous six months (aged 19.60 ± 2.20 years; N?=?93 men, N?=?107 women)…

Baker, Thomas A., III.; Byon, Kevin K. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2014
A scale was developed to measure perceptions of sexual abuse in youth sports by assessing (a) the perceived prevalence of sexual abuse committed by pedophilic youth sport coaches, (b) the perceived likelihood that a coach is a pedophile, (c) perceptions on how youth sport organizations should manage the risk of pedophilia, and (d) media influence…

Moore, E. Whitney G.; Fry, Mary D. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2014
This study's purpose was to examine the psychometric properties of two new scales developed to quantitatively measure participants' ownership in exercise classes and empowerment, with respect to exercise. These two outcome measures will compliment Achievement Goal Perspective Theory (AGPT) grounded research to better understand participants'…

Hogue, Candace M.; Pornprasertmanit, Sunthud; Fry, Mary D.; Rhemtulla, Mijke; Little, Todd D. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2013
Salivary cortisol is often used as an index of physiological and psychological stress in exercise science and psychoneuroendocrine research. A primary concern when designing research studies examining cortisol stems from the high cost of analysis. Planned missing data designs involve intentionally omitting a random subset of observations from data…
