The Pictorial Scale of Perceived Movement Skill Competence

Overview: The pictorial scale of Perceived Movement Skill Competence (PMSC) was modelled in terms of the picture and response format on The Pictorial Scale of Perceived Competence and Social Acceptance for Young Children (Harter & Pike, 1983) Ages 4 to 7.

The items in the PMSC were initially matched to the 12 items in the Test of Gross Motor Development - 2nd Edition (Ulrich; 2000). These items include six for each subtest: Locomotor: run, gallop, hop, leap, horizontal jump, slide and Object Control: striking a stationary ball, stationary dribble, kick, catch, overhand throw, and underhand roll.
