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 0.23* (0.20–0.27) 1
Motivation and Confidence 0.39* (0.37–0.42) 0.34* (0.31–0.38) 1
Knowledge and Understanding 0.17* (0.13–0.20) 0.07* (0.03–0.11) 0.17* (0.13–0.20)
  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
