  • Aim servicemembers: Edgren Side Step Test, T-Test, and Illinois Agility Test

    • Establish reliability and convergent construct validity of Edgren Side Step Test (ESST), T-Test, and Illinois Agility Test (IAT) in young, nondisabled, physically active male servicemembers (SMs).

  • Relevance

    • Performance-based outcomes have been used to assess agility in athletes and nonathletes.

      • However, reliability and validity have not been established.


Method
Method servicemembers: Edgren Side Step Test, T-Test, and Illinois Agility Test

  • 97 male Active Duty U.S. Army SMs completed ESST, T-Test, and IAT twice within 24–48 h.


Results
Results servicemembers: Edgren Side Step Test, T-Test, and Illinois Agility Test

  • No significant differences between ESST (p = 0.10), T-Test (p = 0.09), and IAT (p = 0.23).

  • Reliability:

    • Excellent interrater.

    • Moderate to good test-retest.

  • Relationship between tests:

    • Good positive between IAT and T-Test (r = 0.76, p < 0.001).

    • Moderate negative between ESST and both T-Test (r = –0.69, p < 0.001) and IAT (r = –0.65, p < 0.001).


Conclusion
Conclusion servicemembers: Edgren Side Step Test, T-Test, and Illinois Agility Test

  • These tests are valid measures of agility.

  • They uniquely assess movement in different planes, thus providing a comprehensive assessment of high-level mobility.
