Help needed for my university final year project
Got my result. 99. whatever that means. Unless it's Plums age? Come on, fess up all..
That you have got more than anyone else so far
I scored a lowly 82
124 for me, and likewise, not too sure exactly what that means, but it's over the 116 mentioned by 'Pudge', so I'm in troible
I got 100 as well. I emailed Hannah back for a bit more explanation and got this...
Here is a little bit more information about the results for the questionnaires... Exercise Dependence Questionnaire The highest possibly score for the EDQ is 203. The paper that I have referenced with your feedback basically just explains that there is no official cut off score for the Exercise Dependence Questionnaire. The paper examines the various cut off scores which have been used in previous research ranging from higher than 116 to higher than 145. There is no correct cut off score as higher than 116 may include false positives and higher than may result in false negatives. It is also important to note that the EDQ is not used as a diagnostic tool, just as a guideline, so a higher score may not necessarily mean an unhealthy addiction to exercise, some that would be described as ?Exercise Dependence? lead a healthy lifestyle and would not necessarily put exercise first even with a score that suggests this. To be officially diagnosed you would need to go through extensive interviews with a psychiatrist. Physical Self-Description Questionnaire The maximum score for 'Health' and 'Self-Esteem' is 56 (8 questions with maximum of 7) and for all the other subscales the maximum score is 42 (6 questions with a maximum of 7). Each score is a positive mark, so the higher your number, you more positively you were that aspect. For example a high score in health means that you perceive your health as positive, but a low score in body fat means you perceive your body fat as negative. With body fat, a low score does not relate to the amount of body fat, just whether you view in a positive or negative way.
I am eating as much as I can in my preparation for Ironman 2015, I will probably start the physical training next year
107 for me. Solid plan fatmo
127.. Oops. I do wonder if my score would be different if I wasn't training for a marathon + HIM though. Perhaps I am just in denial.. best go for a run to think it over.
