. Intra-class correlation coefficient (ICC) for this adapted perceived movement skill competence questionnaire was 0.84, indicating a high (>0.8) reliability ( Landis & Koch, 1977 ). Actual FMS Competence Test examiners assessed children’s actual FMS performance using The Test of Gross Motor Development

’s games in real time. Asking children to score each game immediately after participation, they found no correlations between state enjoyment and PA intensity ( r  = −.07). Using Rasch Rating Scale Modeling (RRSM) analyses, the 9-item FAS was found to have too many options to accurately assess perceived

Next, Pearson correlation coefficients were calculated to observe the association between smartwatch EE estimates and indirect calorimetry EE measurements at rest and

heterogeneity regarding the number of PA metrics being reported, limiting comparability between studies ( Silfee et al., 2018 ). Distinct forms of PA measurement can provide confusing or even contradictory findings ( Thompson et al., 2009 ). Numerous studies have shown that correlations between device-based and

To determine whether the four experimental groups differed in regard to relevant demographics (e.g., age, year in school, basketball involvement, rating of basketball ability), a one

Equation 1 was combined with one of three variations on Bridge Equation 2. In addition, we examine the performance of meta-analyzing multiple indirect routes. If available, we used published bridge equations. If relevant equations were unavailable but correlation coefficients and basic (mean and SD

In contrast, 6 of 11 studies of adolescents reported that higher crime rates are correlated with lower physical activity. 3 Sex

Associations were then evaluated using univariate and multivariate 2-level organizational models (or mixed models). The intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) was computed to

Thirty-three men (age 26–55 years) who did not exercise regularly were exercised to exhaustion using an incremental treadmill protocol. Blood lactate concentration was measured to identify lactate threshold (LT, oxygen consumption at which blood lactate concentration begins to systematically increase). The correlation coefficient for LT (ml · kg−1 · min−1) with age was not significant, but when LT was expressed as a percentage of peak oxygen consumption (VO2 peak), the correlation was r = +.69 (p < .01). This was despite a lack of significant correlation between age and VO2 peak (r = −.33). The correlation between reserve capacity (the difference between VO2 peak and LT) and age was r = −.73 (p < .01 ), and reserve capacity decreased at a rate of 3.1 ml · kg−1 · min−1 per decade. It was concluded that the percentage of VO2 peak at which LT occurs increases progressively with age, with a resultant decrease in reserve capacity.

The purpose of this study was to examine the reliability and validity of a newly developed computerized Dutch version of the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ).


Subjects (N = 53) completed the computerized IPAQ at three specified times. Subjects wore a CSA activity monitor during seven full days and simultaneously completed a 7-d physical activity diary. Finally, respondents filled out a paper and pencil IPAQ.


Intraclass correlation coefficient ranged from 0.60 to 0.83. Correlations for “total physical activity” between the computerized IPAQ and the CSA activity counts were moderate (min: r = 0.38; kcal: r = 0.43). Correlations with the physical activity diary were also moderate (min: r = 0.39; kcal: r = 0.46). Correlations between the computerized and the paper and pencil IPAQ were high (min: r = 0.80; kcal: r = 0.84).


The computerized Dutch IPAQ is a reliable and reasonably valid physical activity measurement tool for the general adult population.
