The Movement Imagery Questionnaire for Children (MIQ-C; Martini, Carter, Yoxon, Cumming, & Ste-Marie, 2016) is an adapted version of the MIQ-3 (Williams Cumming, Ntoumanis, Nordin-Bates, Ramsey, & Hall, 2012).

It is also a 12-item questionnaire, but the instructions have been modified to make it suitable for use with children between the ages of 7 and 12 years.  It assess children’s ability to image four movements using internal visual imagery, external visual imagery, and kinesthetic imagery.

The MIQ-C has good psychometric properties and internal reliability.
