Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

Psychometric properties of a novel, mobile application-based measure of group playground play sophistication were evaluated using the Rasch partial credit model. The results demonstrate strong evidence for validity and emerging evidence for reliability of this measurement strategy. This type of measurement can advance the role of OTs in universal playground interventions and playground design.
