  10. 10. Reliability Testing <ul><li>SportsLinx has recently presented some test/re-test reliability data for the field-based measures. (Boddy LM, Stratton G, Hackett AF. The test/re-test reliability of a field-based fitness test battery in 9-10 year old schoolchildren. Oral Communication, Pediatric Work Physiology European Congress, Le Touquet, France, September, 2009). </li></ul><ul><li>The study found that all anthropometric measures e.g. Height, weight, BMI, and skinfolds showed high levels of test/re-test reliability. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ICC and Chronbach’s alpha reliability ratings between 0.97-0.99. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Other markers of health related fitness, including the 20mMST (bleep test) also showed high reliability values. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Therefore, we are confident our methods are reliable. </li></ul><ul><li>In terms of the reported prevalence of obesity and overweight coverage impacts significantly. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This may explain the jump in prevalence observed between 2006-2007 and 2007-2008 using the NCMP data & differences between the SportsLinx and NCMP data in the screening programme’s earlier cohorts. </li></ul></ul>
