Courses established for shuttle walking or running tests require only 10 or 20 m, respectively, plus turn areas of 5 m at each end. See Chapter 3 for an illustration and description of the shuttle course. Calibration, accuracy, and precision A measuring wheel provides the easiest way to measure a walking or running course accurately. Alternatively, careful measurement with a 30-m tape measure would be acceptable. The accuracy of such courses need not be perfect. However, reproducible starting and ending points, as well as a reproducible route, are of primary importance.

400 m) with time as the criterion measurement? , 12 min) with distance covered as the criterion variable? Both approaches are frequently used, but the measurement of time to complete a premeasured distance is preferable as both time and distance can be known more precisely. When a patient walks for a Wxed period of time, distance can be measured, but often with less precision, and usually with more diYculty. Additionally, knowing, and when possible, being able to see the distance to be covered seem to set a more easily interpreted endpoint for the participant.

The regression equation is used to correct future measurements. Accuracy refers to the ability of an instrument to measure its true value. If an instrument is accurate it is also said to be valid and reliable (or precise). 00%, it is accurate for that value. The oxygen analyzer (or, by extension, any other instrument) may not be accurate at another value. Instruments should have the capability of acceptable accuracy over the range of values one expects to measure. What to do with calibration data In the event that the instrument cannot be physically adjusted to provide the true value, mathematical ‘‘adjustments’’ can be made in the form of a calibration curve.
