In the present study, total energy expenditure values and physical activity levels measured by the armband and 7-d PAAQ were similar and weakly correlated (r = 0.21 and 0.39, respectively).
Additionally, the total energy expenditures determined by the 7-d PAAQ and armband were similar.

The means and standard deviations of PAAQ, SOC, and PANAS scores of female and male students are presented in Table 1.
As can be seen in Table 1, the mean scores of PAAQ, SOC, PA, and NA for the total sample were 1.6, 4.4, 32.5, and 21.3, with standard deviations of 0.18, 0.79, 6.72, and 6.67, respectively Results of t-tests yielded no significant gender differences in terms of the scores obtained from the instruments (all p > .05).

The primary hypotheses of the present experiments fall into two categories: (1) a race-based difference in behavior, and (2) the predictive power of the IAT relative to the PAAQ. Regarding the first category, Experiment 1 was conducted with the expectation that Caucasian participants would exhibit less cooperation in the PD when playing against an outgroup member (i.e., an African American).
The PAAQ (Katz & Hass, 1988) consists of 10 Pro-Black items (e.g., "Black people do not have the same employment opportunities that whites do") and 10 Anti-Black items (e.g., "On the whole, black people don't stress education and training").
In the attitude assessment session, participants were seated in individual cubicles in which they completed the IAT and the PAAQ. The order in which participants completed these two measures was counterbalanced.
The PAAQ was administered using Jarvis' MediaLab (2004b) experimental software.
Mean response latencies (in milliseconds) during the compatible (e.g., Caucasian + pleasant) and incompatible (e.g., African American + pleasant) blocks were submitted to a 2 (Session Order: attitude measures first, PD first) x 2 (Attitude Measure Order: IAT first, PAAQ first) x 4 (IAT Block Composition: Caucasian + pleasant first, Caucasian + unpleasant first, African-American + pleasant first, African-American + unpleasant first) x 2 (IAT Block Compatibility: compatible, incompatible) ANOVA with repeated measures on the last factor.
