Rogers, Simon A.; Hassmén, Peter; Hunter, Adam; Alcock, Alison; Crewe, Stewart T.; Strauts, Janina A.; Gilleard, Wendy L.; Weissensteiner, Juanita R. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
This study aimed to assess the validity and reliability of jump assessments using the "MyJump2" application. Eleven junior athletes (15 ± 1.4 years) performed five countermovement (CMJ) and drop jumps (DJ) measured simultaneously by a force platform and "MyJump2." Additionally, intra- and inter-day reliability was assessed over…

Biese, Kevin M.; Pietrosimone, Laura E.; Andrejchak, Morgan; Lynall, Robert C.; Wikstrom, Erik A.; Padua, Darin A. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
Objective: Little is known about cognition's effect on jump-landing movement patterns. Design: Participants completed three baseline cognitive tasks. Then, participants performed three jump-landing trials per condition (dual-task trials (DT)): Stroop Color Word test (SCWT), Symbol Digits Modalities test (SDMT), Brooks Visuospatial task (BVT), and…

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…

Stanton, Robert; Doering, Thomas M.; Macgregor, Campbell; Borges, Nattai; Delvecchio, Luke – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
Countermovement jump (CMJ) height is an important parameter in physical performance. This study compared CMJ height measured using ChronoJump contact mat (CJ) and Myotest accelerometer (MT) systems with a force platform (FP). Thirty recreationally active adults (32.1 ± 10.4 years, 75.9 ± 12.0 kg, 173.2 ± 6.3 cm) completed a CMJ protocol where…

Stearns, Jodie A.; Wohlers, Brendan; McHugh, Tara-Leigh F.; Kuzik, Nicholas; Spence, John C. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
The reliability and validity of the PLAY"fun" and PLAY"basic" tools were assessed. The PLAY"fun", PLAY"basic", Canadian Agility and Movement Skill Assessment (CAMSA) obstacle course, and Physical Activity Questionnaire for Children (PAQ-C) were administered to children (aged 8-14 years) in two remote…

Clevenger, Kimberly Ann; Sinha, Gaurav; Howe, Cheryl A. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
Several geospatial approaches have been used to characterize physical activity during recess using global positioning system (GPS) data. GPS and accelerometer data from 23 children collected during recess were analyzed using four previously used approaches: (1) dot map, (2) fishnet grid, (3) hot spot analysis, which determines clusters of high/low…

Krüger, Mirko – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
This study aimed to develop and psychometrically evaluate a self-report instrument to assess attitudes and self-efficacy of Physical Education (PE) preservice teachers toward teaching linguistically and culturally diverse PE classes. An 18-item instrument was developed for the initial tests. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory…

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)…

Sacko, Ryan S.; Brazendale, Keith; Brian, Ali; McIver, Kerry; Nesbitt, Danielle; Pfeifer, Craig; Stodden, David F. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
This study compared the energy expenditure (EE) levels during object projection skill performance (OPSP) as assessed by indirect calorimetry and accelerometry. Thirty-four adults (female n = 18) aged 18-30 (23.5 ± 2.5 years) performed three, 9-min sessions of kicking, over-arm throwing, and striking performed at 6-, 12-, and 30-sec intervals. EE…

The coincidence-anticipation timing (CAT) task assesses one facet of cognitive and motor performance and is used to understand the human visuo-motor system involved in intercepting the moving object. To assess the test-retest reliability and the concurrent validity in the "Bridge Games" package (Bridge) developed to assess the CAT task,…

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…

Park, SeYun; Jang, JungYun; Reifsteck, Erin; Gill, Diane L. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
In this study, we examined the factor structure and reliability of the Korean Quality of Life (KQoL) survey and compared the KQoL survey to both the World Health Organization Quality of Life-Brief Version (WHOQOL-BREF) and the Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS). We also assessed associations between KQoL scores and physical activity (PA)…

Bliss, Alex; Dekerle, Jeanne – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2019
Knee flexor and extensor muscular assessment via isokinetic dynamometry is common practice and established in the research literature. However, reporting assessment methodology regarding reciprocal and nonreciprocal movements is often vague or absent. Such methodological issues are crucial for accurate assessments. Therefore, knee extensor and…
