MORALES, Juan C. P.; GRECO, Pablo J.  and  ANDRADE, Ricardo L.. Content validity of the instrument for assessment of the tactical procedural knowledge in basketball. CPD [online]. 2012, vol.12, suppl.1, pp.31-36. ISSN 1989-5879.

The aim of this study was to establish the content validity of the tactical procedural knowledge test in basketball (TPKT-Bb), starting from the calculation of the content validity coefficient (CVC) as proposed by Hernandez-Nieto (2002). Seven basketball coaches (n=07) participated in the study. All of them were graduated in Physical Education and had a minimum of ten years experience in working with the processes of sports initiation, specialization and high performance in basketball. We have proposed 24 items to evaluate the behaviour of the players during individual and group tactical actions. During offense situations, the player was assessed when in possession of the ball and also when not. In the same way, on defense the player was evaluated when marking the ball-handler and also when marking the opponent not in possession of the ball. The content validity coefficient (CVC) was calculated by means of language clearness and practical relevance for each item of the instrument (CVCc) and for the overall instrument (CVCt). The results confirm that, for the purposes of language clearness (CVCt = 0,94) and practical relevance (CVCt = 0,91), the proposed items present satisfactory psychometric properties.

Keywords : Basketball; content validity coefficient; tactical procedural knowledge.
