The Need for Subjectivity and Objectivity in the Athletic Training Evaluation.
Bell, Gerald W.
Because of the importance of evaluation to students' learning, performance, and self-concept, the evaluation of students preparing to become athletic trainers must be encompassing and informative. It must include the three behavioral objectives of cognitive, affective, and psychomotor skills required in athletic training. A good evaluation requires that instructors develop objectives for successful performance in classroom, field, and clinic. General procedures instructors should use for measuring and evaluating are: (1) determine what is to be measured; (2) define behavioral objectives; (3) select or design appropriate instrument; (4) record results; (5) evaluate evidence and make judgments; (6) ensure that evaluations are continuous and participatory; and (7) follow up with diagnosis.
