Abstract

This study investigated the psychometric properties of the Caregiver Assessment of Movement Participation (CAMP), which was developed to measure and identify children with movement participation problems in home contexts. The test-retest reliability, as well as the concurrent and contrast-group validity of the 35-item parent-proxy CAMP, was examined on 312 children aged 5 to 8 years using intraclass correlation, factor analysis, and the Rasch model. Initial findings on the CAMP appeared to support its validity. Testing on other properties from a practical perspective, such as finding the best rating scale structure and cutpoints, are recommended before using the instrument for child health surveillance screening.
