Abstract

Purpose: To validate the Movement-Specific Reinvestment Scale for Children (MSRS-C) in English-speaking children that assesses a child’s propensity to consciously monitor and control body movement (termed movement reinvestment). Method: Three-hundred and forty children aged 7-13 years completed the MSRS-C alongside a measure of sustained attention. Results: Results from the confirmatory factor analysis revealed that the MSRS-C possessed sound internal validity, fair convergent validity, acceptable internal consistency, and test-retest reliability. Negligible gender differences and no association with age were found. Conclusions: Future research can further ascertain the predictive validity of the MSRS-C. Understanding movement reinvestment in the child population has practical implications for practitioners responsible for teaching children motor skills and in children’s sustained engagement in sport and exercise.
