Reliability and Validity

Internal consistency of the scale α = .89.

Internal consistency in a sample of long-term care facility residents α = .87.

Concurrent validity – significant positive correlations with measures of exercise behavior (ß= .39, p < .05).

Concurrent validity – OEE detects significant difference between individuals who exercise regularly and those who do not (F = 31.3, p < .05, ß2= .15).

Construct validity – positive correlation with measures of self-efficacy expectations (r = .66, p = < .05).

Administration, Analysis and Reporting

Statistics Solutions consists of a team of professional methodologists and statisticians that can assist the student or professional researcher in administering the survey instrument, collecting the data, conducting the analyses and explaining the results.
