Total 12 tests namely Riding Footwork, Simple Hand touch, Running hand touch, Stooping hand touch, Turn & hand touch, Hopping hand touch, Toe touch, Double attack in toe touch, Drag back and toe touch, Running toe touch, Back kick and Bonus were administered. With this all sample's playing ability was also measured by 7 experts of Kabaddi game. To find the validity of the test each skill's score was correlated with playing ability score which was provided by the experts. To find the reliability test and retest score were correlated and to find out objectivity inter tester's scores were correlated. For all the statistical calculations Karl Pearson's coefficient of correlation was used. Results indicated that all the Kabaddi offensive skill tests found significant correlation with playing ability of players, hence tests are said to be valid. Test and retest scores were also highly and significant correlation with each other hence tests were said to be reliable.
