Abstract

Background and Purpose. The reliability and responsiveness of 2 physical performance measures were assessed in this nonrandomized, controlled pilot exercise intervention. In this pilot study, the PPT-8 was shown to have good internal consistency as an 8-item scale, with a Cronbach alpha of .785; there was excellent interrater reliability as well (ICC=.96).
