  1. Comparison of four habitual physical activity questionnaires in girls aged 7-15 yr.

    Article - En anglais

    Purpose 

    Questionnaires provide a practical approach to measuring physical activity in children and adolescents, particularly for large-scale epidemiological studies.

    The purpose of the present study was to compare four habitual physical activity questionnaires and to assess their long-term reliabilities.

    Methods 

    Subjects were female, aged 7-15 yr (and their parents who participated in a cohort study in which predictors of the onset of menarche were being investigated.

    Questionnaires consisted of three single-item and one multi-item habitual physical activity questions and were sent to the 640 participants.

    Test-retest reliability of the questionnaires was assessed on 100 randomly selected participants II months later.

    Results 

    The Spearman's correlation coefficient was highest (r=0.40) between the Godin-Shephard Score and the Perspiration Score and was lowest (r=0.10) between the Stairs Score and the Specific Activity Score.

    The correlation coefficients were higher when the questionnaires were reported to have been completed by the parents alone, rather than by parents with the assistance of their daughters.

    The test-retest reliabilities were r=0.44 for the Perspiration Score, r=0.59 for the Stairs Score, r=0.48 for the Godin-Shephard Score, and r=0.53 for the Specific Activity Score.

    The reliabilities were higher when the retest was reported to have been completed by the parents alone. (...)
