Abstract Introduction:<\b>
Physical literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and participate in physical activity for life. Currently, no instrument assesses physical literacy in accordance with Whitehead’s philosophy. This study aims to systematically review the literature for assessments to measure physical literacy elements within children aged 7-11 years. Methods:<\b>
A systematic review was conducted in accordance with PRISMA-P guidelines. Search terms were defined during workshops with physical literacy experts before the following electronic databases were searched (12 May 2017- 4 November 2017) to identify relevant peer-reviewed journal articles published in English: (i) MEDLINE (ii) ScienceDirect (iii) SPORTDiscus,iv) Education Research Complete (iv)Scopus, and (v)psycINFO. Two independent reviewers screened studies for inclusion and extracted data. Methodological quality of quantitative and qualitative assessment tools were appraised using COSMIN and National Institute for Health and Care Excellence checklists, respectively. The feasibility, interpretability, cost and ease of use of each instrument was assessed. The methodological quality and usefulness of existing tools to physical literacy assessment was summarised in a narrative synthesis. Results:<\b>
The initial search produced 7533 results, with 145 studies included in the final review (cognitive, n=4; affective, n=61; physical, n=75). Conclusion:<\b>
This paper summarises the protocol and progress of a systematic review examining physical literacy related assessments. The included studies are currently undergoing quality appraisal, with the findings to be published in a series of systematic reviews examining the affective, cognitive or physical domain assessments. This research will inform the development of a holistic physical literacy assessment tool.
