imagery is widely accepted by sport psychologists, coaches, and athlètes to be a useful psychological technique in the training of athlètes for excellence (1998; Janssen & Sheikh, 1994). If imagery training is to be maximally effective, practitioners need to establish an understanding ofthe athlètes' ability to image. achieve this, it is necessary to assess imagery ability in a reliable, valid, and comprehensive manner (Moran, 1993). As yet no multi-modal, multi-dimensional, sport spécifie test has been fully validated. The purpose of this thesis is to describe the development, reliability, and validation of an assessment tool for use in imagery research and training programs, the Sport Imagery Ability Measure (SIAM).
