The lack of consistent scoring approaches to "micro-scale" environmental assessments presents a challenge for translating research findings into effective active living policies. Two separate teams of researchers developed methodologies for creating micro-scale scoring systems for the Irvine Minnesota Inventory (IMI) and the Microscale Audit for Pedestrian Streetscapes (MAPS). This 3-hour workshop provided an overview of and brief training on IMI and MAPS.
Participants will become acquainted with coding portions of the IMI and MAPS tools.
Participants will practice scoring portions of these tools using SPSS syntax.
Participants will understand the differences in scoring mechanisms and the conceptual models that guided them.
