Anthropometric Training Project. Final Report.
San Diego State Coll., CA.
The Anthropometric Training Project was aimed at providing a training program for select students to develop research competency in an area relating body type, composition, anthropometric assessment, and physical performance measures. The program involves interdisciplinary cooperation in training through seminars, laboratory practice, and independent small-group projects. Major content areas and approximate sequence of instructions included: (1) anthropometric research methodology, (2) resolution of data, (3) physique and body type, (4) body composition, (5) anthropometric procedures and practice, and (6) selected performance parameters. A thorough evaluation of the program is included. The conclusion was that the program did develop research competency in an area relating physical performance to anthropometry. (Author/PH)
