Practical Measurements for Evaluation in Physical Education.
Johnson, Barry L.; Nelson, Jack K.
Developed in response to the need for a better understanding of how to measure and evaluate physical skill performance in an economical and practical manner, this book provides data which should augment the physical educator's evaluation skills. The objectives were to develop within the prospective physical education teacher a greater understanding and appreciation of the need for and application of tests and measurements in the evaluation process (some basic statistical techniques are discussed); to offer several tests in each of fifteen subject areas which can be used by the average physical education teacher in a typical school situation; to discuss the various qualities and present brief summaries of pertinent research findings; and to identify problems that arise in isolating and measuring the particular abilities. The tests included were selected from those already published or were developed and modified by the authors. Extensive bibliographies support each of the twenty-two chapters and normative data for the measurement of particular physical abilities is provided. (PR)
