Test Protocol

Procedures required for administering a reliable test. (NSCA CPT, pg. 199)

2

Reliability

An expression of the repeatability of a test or the consistency of repeated tests. (NSCA CPT, pg. 200)

3

Test-retest Method

A strategy to promote reliability by repeating a test with the same individual or group. (NSCA CPT, pg. 200)

4

Validity

The degree to which a test or test item measures what it is supposed to measure. (NSCA CPT, pg. 200)

5

Indirect Measure

7

Standard Error of Measurement

The difference between a person’s observed score—what the result was—and that person’s true score, a theoretically errorless score. (NSCA CPT, pg. 201)

8

Air Quality Index (AQI)

The AQI is an index for reporting daily air quality. It tells you how clean or polluted your air is, and what associated health effects might be a concern for you. (NSCA CPT, pg. 204)

9

Field Tests

An assessment that is performed away from the laboratory and does not require extensive training or expensive equipment. (NSCA CPT, pg. 209)

10

Norm-referenced Standards

12

Percentile

Percentage of scorers at or below the client’s score. (NSCA CPT, pg. 212)

14

Criterion-related Validity

Measures how well one measure predicts an outcome for another measure. (NSCA CPT, pg. 200)

15

Face Validity

The degree to which a procedure, especially a psychological test or assessment, appears effective in terms of its stated aims. (NSCA CPT, pg. 200)

16

Content Validity

Refers to the extent to which a measure represents all facets of a given construct. (NSCA CPT, pg. 200)

17

Good AQI rating meaning

Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk. (NSCA CPT, pg. 204)

18

Moderate AQI rating meaning

Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution. (NSCA CPT, pg. 204)

19

Unhealthy for sensitive groups AQI rating meaning

Members of sensitive groups may experience health effects. The general public is not likely to be affected. (NSCA CPT, pg. 204)

20

Unhealthy AQI rating meaning

Everyone may begin to experience health effects. Members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects. (NSCA CPT, pg. 204)

21

Very unhealthy AQI rating meaning

Health alert: everyone may experience more serious health effects. (NSCA CPT, pg. 204)

22

Hazardous AQI rating meaning

Health warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected. (NSCA CPT, pg. 204)

23

Progress toward a goal during reassessment

A formative evaluation. (NSCA CPT, pg. 213)
