Key articles on the creation and scientific validation of the Continuous Scale Physical FunctionalPerformance (CS-PFP) test.

The CS-PFP is a model for validation of performance-based measures. To date, it is the only functional performance measure to be validated against maximal performance measures such as aerobic capacity, balance, strength and flexibility. The CS-PFP has inherent face validity, where direct observation of performance is proof of capability. These peer review publications illustrate the means by which construct, congruent, and internal validity were established. These articles have been used as models for teaching instrument validation. The articles also show the test-retest and inter-rater reliability of the CS-PFP.
