To evaluate and compare four different methods commonly used to measure vertical jump performance, 52 physically active males each performed five maximal vertical jumps. Kinetic and kinematic data were used to analyze each trial using the four methods: a criterion test based on body center of mass displacement (VJPT); two methods based on vertical take-off velocity as calculated form the force platform (JUMP2 and JUMP3); and one method based on time in the air (JUMPAIR). All four methods showed excellent reliability (R>0.97). Using VJPT as the criterion, the other three methods showed excellent coefficients of validity (R>0.95) but poor accuracy: the vertical jump results were statistically different among all methods (p<0.01). From the discussion, JUMPAIR is considered a relatively simple and inexpensive method to obtain valid and reliable measures of vertical jump performance without an arm swing, provided the appropriate adjustments are made to the jump results. info:eu-repo/grantAgreement/Universidad de Costa Rica/Escuela de Educación Física y Deportes//Costa Rica// info:eu-repo/grantAgreement/University of Michigan/Rackham Dissertation Grant//United States// info:eu-repo/grantAgreement/Universidad de Costa Rica//VI-245-95-276/Costa Rica// info:eu-repo/grantAgreement/University of Michigan/Rackham Predoctoral Fellowship//United States// UCR::Vicerrectoría de Docencia::Ciencias Sociales::Facultad de Educación::Escuela de Educación Física 2015-04-20T19:51:52Z 2015-04-20T19:51:52Z 2000 info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/acceptedVersion Artículo científico http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1207/S15327841MPEE0404_2#.VRXEyfmG_Cs essn:1532-7841 issn:1091-367X http://hdl.handle.net/10669/11391 10.1207/S15327841MPEE0404_2 en_US http://kerwa.ucr.ac.cr/handle/10669/29494 Atribución-NoComercial-CompartirIgual 3.0 Costa Rica http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/cr/ application/pdf Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science 4(4):215-228
