Researchers used the 1 repetition maximum (1RM) leg extension test to assess the validity for lower-body muscular power and found that the standing long jump test can be . CONCLUSIONS: Considering the strong concurrent validity, the excellent test-retest reliability, the RCT is: simple to administer, has ecological validity and is a valid specific-field-test of. ABSTRACTThe reliability and validity of the T-test as a measure of leg power, leg speed, and agility were examined. A total of college-aged men (n = ) and women (n = ), selected from varying levels of sport participation, performed 4 tests of sport skill ability: (a) yd dash (leg speed), (b) counter-movement vertical jump (leg power), (c) hexagon test (agility), and (d) T-test. Criterion validity is the process in which a test is compared to a validated one to determine whether the same variable is being measured The similarity in the results would indicate its by: 1.

Using Reliability, Validity, and Item Analysis to Evaluate a Teacher-Developed Test in International Business Tracie Cooper, Ashley Pittman, and Simona Womack Abstract Authors discuss the importance and the purpose of understanding the proper way to develop and use assessments that would be beneficial in determining achievement outcomes forFile Size: KB. Chapter 7 Evaluating Information: Validity, Reliability, Accuracy, Triangulation Teaching and learning objectives: 1. To consider why information should be assessed 2. To understand the distinction between ‘primary’ and ‘secondary sources’ of information 3. To learn what is meant by the validity, reliability, and accuracy of information 4. validity; thus contributing to the overall construct validity. As Messick (, p. 8) states: Hence, construct validity is a sine qua non in the validation not only of test interpretation but also of test use, in the sense that relevance and utility as well as appropriateness of test use depend, or should depend, on score meaning. Attempts to increase internal validity are likely to reduce external validity as the study is conducted in a manner that is increasingly unlike the real world. Reliability There are many forms or reliability, all of which will have an effect on the overall reliability of the instrument and therefore the data collected.

The test requires the athlete to hop 25 metres as fast as possible. The athlete warms up for 10 minutes. The assistant, using cones, marks out a metre section. The athlete starts at cone A. The athlete uses a jog run-up to the start line cone (B) and then hops the metre section to the finish line (C) on the right leg as fast as possible. POWER MEASUREMENT All proper tests of muscular power must em- ploy a quantitative formulation or measurement that is consistent with the true physical definition of power. Any test that does not meet this criter- ion does not measure power. When attempting to determine whether a muscular performance test score constitutes a true power measure-. Taking a counterstep is the most reliable and valid field test for estimation of explosive leg power. 40 The score is the distance between the first reach and the second. Figure 4. Starting position for vertical by:   Reliability is the amount of consistency between measurements and validity is the amount of accuracy or the degree to which a test measures what it was intended to measure. The key point is that valid tests must first be shown to be reliable, but reliable tests are not necessarily valid.
