The purpose of this pilot study was to compare exercise stage of change classification using five instruments and an interview designed to determine readiness to change, as described in Prochaska's well-published model. Thirty healthy adults (15 males and 15 females) completed five instruments in random order and then underwent a face-to-face structured interview. Classifications based on all five instruments and interview were in 100% agreement in only 8 of 30 subjects, or 27% of the time. Percent agreement in classification between each instrument and the interview ranged from 40% to 80%. Significant Spearman rank order correlations between classification from each of the instruments and interview ranged from rs=.77 to .85. The scale-ladder and the scale-true/false instruments had the highest percent agreement with interview. Based on these results, caution is warranted in published exercise stage of change instruments, until more sophisticated psychometric studies are conducted using larger samples.
