Reliability and concurrent validity of the movement assessment battery for children
Reliability and concurrent validity of the Movement Assessment Battery for Children were evaluated Nvith a sample of 106 boys and girls, distributed into four age groups: 5-6 yr. (n=20), 7-8 yr. (n=20), 9-10 yr. (n=46), and 11-12 yr. (n=20). Test-retest reliability of the Movement Assessment Battery for Children, estimated using intraclass correlation coefficients, was high across all age groups, and concurrent validity yielded moderate Pearson correlation coefficients between the Movement battery and long and short forms of the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency. These results support the use of the Movement battery as a measure of motor ability in children, ages 5 to 12 years.
