Abstract

This study examined convergent and discriminant validity for the Children’s Active Play Imagery Questionnaire (CAPIQ; Cooke et al., 2014), which assesses the frequency of one’s imagery use for active play. In order to establish validity for the CAPIQ, four questionnaires were utilized including the Physical Activity Enjoyment Scale for Children (PACES for children; Moore et al., 2009), the Sport Imagery Questionnaire for Children (SIQ-C; Hall et al., 2009), the Sport Friendship Quality Scale (SFQS; Weiss & Smith, 1999), and the Competitive State Anxiety Inventory for Children (CSAI-2C; Stadulis et al., 2002). One hundred and ninety-four elementary school students (9-14 years of age) were recruited (n = 82 male; n = 111 female). Spearman correlation coefficients were calculated to determine relationships between the CAPIQ and the subscales of the PACES for children, SIQ-C, SFQS, and the CSAI-2C. Results provided support for both the convergent and discriminant validity of the CAPIQ.
