Background

Multiple organizations and research groups have constructed registries of physical activity self-report instruments. The shared goal is to establish a resource for accurate and efficient measurement of physical activity; however, few provide guidance for the uninitiated about how to choose a self-report instrument from the many available. A checklist for evaluating the validity, cultural sensitivity, and feasibility of administration is presented to guide instrument selection from a registry as well as design and reporting of instrument validation studies.
