Excerpt from article that describes the research:

The Extended Adolescent Injury Checklist (E-AIC), a self-report measure of injury based on the model of the Adolescent Injury Checklist (AIC), was developed for use in the evaluation of school-based interventions. The three stages of this development involved focus groups with adolescents and consultations with medical staff, pilot testing of the revised AIC in a high school context, and use of the finalised checklist in pre- and post-questionnaires to examine its utility.

  • Calculation of the reliability coefficient indicated a high degree of consistency among the 17 injury situation items (using Time 1 E-AIC data, Cronbach's alpha = 0.80). To determine the consistency of responses over time, the proportion of adolescents reporting specific injuries at time points, three months apart, were compared. The pattern and distribution of responses showed that reports of injury using the Extended Adolescent Injury Checklist (E-AIC) are consistent, and statistical analysis revealed that the proportions reporting an injury overall, a medically treated injury, or alcohol use in association with injury did not differ significantly over time. See Chapman et al. (2011).
