Proficiency Testing for Physical Education.
McGee, Rosemary; Drews, Fred
This document is a manual that presents the supporting concepts and developmental procedures for implementing proficiency testing programs in physical education. The term "proficiency test" is defined as a test administered to a student upon his request to determine whether he meets a predetermined standard of performance and knowledge in a specific sport or physical education activity. Proficiency tests may be used (a) to establish exemption from a course that is generally required, (b) to place a student at a particular level of performance, or (c) to assist in the determination of a grade or evaluation. Under the main section, "Procedures and Policies," this document presents a discussion of the following aspects of the topic: organization of the faculty, administration of a proficiency testing program, role of the students, selection of proficiency measures, and evaluation. A bibliography is included. The appendixes are as follows: (a) "Partial List of Colleges and Universities Having Experience with Proficiency Testing Programs," (b) "Sample Forms and Notices," (c) "Sample Test Packages," and (d) "Sample Knowledge Tests."
