Résumé

Research on exergaming is accumulating, but little is known about user s’ preferences or intentions of exergaming behaviours in a natural environment (non - intervention setting). Insight into these aspects is important for game developers in order to better tailor games to user s’ needs and expectations, as well as from a public health perspective. Specifically more evidence is needed on if and how exergames can increase physical activity participation. However, there are no reliable self -report measures of exergamer preferences or intentions. In this project, we examined the test retest reliability of the EXPAI -9 (a 9 -item likert scale on preferences and intentions regarding exergaming (e.g. I pr efer exergaming over participating in outdoor sports)) among past -year exergamers (n=40) age 19 years on average (64% female). Participants completed the EXPAI -9 through self -report in September 2015 and completed a retest one month later. Twenty -four perc ent of participants reported playing exergames 1 -6 times per month in the last year using consoles and 34% used mobile devices. Individual items exhibited fair to good stability (intraclass correlation coefficient ranging from 0.338 to 0.760). Overall the EXPAI -9 items were relatively stable over one month. Future research should test the reliability of the EXPAI -9 in larger more diverse samples, and examine exergaming behaviour in relation to the EXPAI -9 score over time.
