Description The purpose of the PAQ-C and PAQ-A questionnaires is to measure the levels of physical activity. The last 7 days, presented by students. Through this research we try to determine the reliability and reproducibility of the questionnaire in its Spanish version. A total of 192 subjects were studied, of which 95 were men, and 97 were women. Children and adolescents whose ages ranged from 9 years to 18 years were considered in the study. To assess physical activity (PA), the questionnaires PAQ-A (Physical Activity Questionnaire for Adolescents) and PAQ-C (Physical Activity Questionnaire for Children) were used. The questionnaires were applied to the subjects in a self-administered way in which the adolescents had 30 minutes to respond. The instrument was applied in two instances, having an interval of 7 days between the two measurements (test and re-test). According to the research, it is important to point out that the questionnaires PAQ-C and PAQ-A have a more than acceptable, transforming into a questionnaire that contributes in a safe and confident way when evaluating the physical activity levels of children and adolescents during the annual school period.
