Abstract

Following the presentation of the ASSO Project, as discussed in theprevious issue of JSSL (Tabacchi G. 2011; 1-3: 267-269 ), one of the firstobjectives of the study is to develop helpful and efficient tools to create a webbasedsoftware for the collection of data on adolescent lifestyles. Differentmethods have been developed and used throughout Europe to collect informationon adolescent lifestyles. In order to select the best methods to be used in theASSO project, a Systematic Literature Review (SLR) on the most valid dietaryand physical activity/fitness assessment methods used in the target population hasbeen perfomed. After the SLR and a meta-analysis of the retrieved studies,different tools have been developed within ASSO, in order to create a userfriendlyand cost-effective toolkit for the creation of a web-based software for thedata collection. A Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for data collection hasbeen prepared and addressed to all the people involved in the preparation,administration and management of the questionnaires. The SOP has the purposeof standardizing methods and procedures to prevent systematic errors in thecollection and reporting of data. Moreover, it is useful to provide reminders andguidelines of the correct way to deal with the information material related to thestudy, to perform the interviews, to manage the compilation of the questionnaireand to store the collected information. An informative letter on the project and theinformed consent to be signed by the parents have been developed. Afterobtaining the parents’ consent, a list of all the students participating in the studywill be prepared and an identification code and a password will be attributed toeach student in order to respect the privacy.
