BACKGROUND This study was designed to model the relationship between an ActiGraph-based "in-school" physical activity (PA) and the daily one among children and to quantify how school can contribute to the daily PA recommendations. METHOD Fifty boys and 43 girls (aged 8 to 11 years) wore ActiGraph for 2 schooldays of no structured PA. The daily moderate-to-vigorous PA (MVPA(d)) was regressed on the school time MVPA (MVPA(s)). Then, a ROC analysis was computed to define the required MVPA(s… CONTINUE READING
