wrist accelerometers (GENEActiv; GENEA, Kimbolton, UK). Accelerometer is a sensor capable of measuring PA, providing objective measurements. The validity and reliability of the accelerometer have been established previously in children and adolescents ( 20 ). Participants were instructed to place the

the use of rigorous, objective measurements of child activity behaviors and direct observations of the FCCH environment. Measuring PA and SBs across 3 days may not fully represent usual behavior, although evidence suggests that it may be sufficient to capture in-school PA ( 1 ). In addition, this

Prevalence of Physical Inactivity PA differences between sexes have been consistently reported in the literature using objective measurement methods 18 and also in Kuwait using PA questionnaires. 5 For example, in the latter study conducted in 2009 in Kuwaiti adolescents (aged 14–19 y), 56% of

study has not been directly tested, although previous studies examined the scale compatibility and reliability in a small sample. Future studies may consider further investigating variables that impact student enjoyment toward PA and PE, and using objective measurements of PA and SB. Overall, the study

this study includes the objective measurement of PA, the use of the relatively novel ISMs, an examination of BMI and physical performance as potential modifiers, and partitioning of fatigue to its subdomains. The use of accelerometers allows more accurate quantification of ST, PA intensity, PA
