Area of Study 1: Assessing physical activity and sedentary behaviour

Key Knowledge

Subjective and objective methods of assessing physical activity and sedentary behaviour including recall survey or diaries, pedometry, accelerometry and observational tools in relation to the National Physical Activity Guidelines.

lesson two

Lesson Two

Subjective and objective methods of assessing physical activity and sedentary behaviour

Which method is more suitable for small groups of people?

Which method is more cost effective?

slide5

Objective and subjective

measures of

physical activity task

This task is aimed at students developing their own knowledge about subjective and objectives measures of physical activity. The task will be completed in groups. Each group will focus on one measure of physical activity and present their findings to class. Task instructions are in a Microsoft Word document.

slide6

Read and discuss the information sheet titled:

‘Appropriate measures for assessing physical activity among population subgroups’

subjective versus objective assessment
Subjective versus objective assessment

Subjective methods of assessing physical activity or sedentary behaviour

  • 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
