From: The development of a questionnaire to assess leisure time screen-based media use and its proximal correlates in children (SCREENS-Q)

Question (measure) assessed
(all units of measurement are minutes)
Statistical assessment of test-retest reliability
Question 9
 Time spent using screen media on a typical weekday, (child)ICC = 0.72 (95%CI: 0.52–0.86)
SEM = 38.84 min/day (95% CI: 30.09–50.13)
Mean difference = 2.74
Limits of agreement = (− 105.02, 110.51)
 Time spent using screen on a typical weekend-day, (child)ICC = 0.67 (95%CI: 0.47–0.84)

Mean difference = 18.23
Limits of agreement = (− 146.93, 183.39)
 Mean min per day, child (min week-day ×  5) + (min per weekend day ×  2)/7(child)ICC = 0.75 (95% CI 0.58–0.88)

Mean difference = 7.95
Limits of agreement = (− 145.85, 161.75)
question 18
 Work-related time spent on screen media on weekdays in the home, (parent)ICC = 0.73 (95%CI: 0.55–0.87.)
