  • Involves qualitative or descriptive recall of behaviours
  • Are less reliable than objective
  • More easily administered to population groups and subgroups
  • Include: recall, logbooks, proxy reports and diaries
  • Objective methods of assessing physical activity or sedentary behaviour
  • Involves quantitative analysis or analysis of numerical data
  • Are more reliable than subjective measures of physical activity or inactivity and can be highly accurate
  • Can be expensive or time consuming, and are best suited to individuals
  • Include: pedometry, accelerometry and observational tools
  • Testing your understanding Objective measures of physical activity and sedentary behaviour are more reliable than subjective measures? True/ False Which of the following is an example of a subjective measure?A) Direct observationB) PedometerC) Keeping a diaryD) Accelerometer Which of the following is the least effective measure of physical activity for an 8 year old?A) RecallB) Direct ObservationC) AccelerometryD) Pedometry
