ESEA Title VI Evaluation Report: Adaptive Physical Education Project.
Liechti, Carroll D.; Walker, Ralph E.
An adaptive physical education project was started in the Wichita Public Schools for children who were unable to participate in regular physical education classes due to one or more handicaps. Sixty-nine students in grades seven through nine participated the first year, and 103 students the second year. The program and class procedures were geared to the individual students' needs. Evaluative data was secured from student records, teacher plans, pre and post physical fitness testing, teacher reports, student activity checklists, and interviews with parents and participating physicians. Case studies of three randomly selected students, one from each grade, were also part of the evaluation. Evaluation data showed an increase in physical skills and ability and the program was judged successful. Approximately 1/4 of the students were able to return to the regular physical education program by the end of the second year. Appendixes include forms and information used in the program evaluation.
