Table 3 Partial correlationsa and 95% confidence intervals between physical literacy domain scores in healthy-weight childrenb (controlled for age and gender) (n = 5307)

From: Associations between domains of physical literacy by weight status in 8- to 12-year-old Canadian children

  Modified Physical Competence Daily Behaviour Motivation and Confidence Knowledge and Understanding
Modified Physical Competence 1
Daily Behaviour 0.29* (0.27–0.32) 1
Motivation and Confidence 0.42* (0.40–0.44) 0.35* (0.33–0.38) 1
Knowledge and Understanding 0.22* (0.20–0.25) 0.10* (0.08–0.13) 0.21* (0.18–0.23) 1
  1. aCorrelation coefficients were classified as weak (0.1 ≤ r < 0.3), moderate (0.3 ≤ r < 0.5), or strong (r ≥ 0.5) [25]
  2. bBody weight status was defined according to the World Health Organization reference data [20]
  3. *Significant correlation coefficients, p < 0.001
