A Stepwise Discriminant Analysis of Eight Selected Basketball Skill Tests.
Hopkins, David R.
The purpose of this study was to determine the discriminatory ability of eight selected skill tests in evaluating the abilities of a group of male basketball players. The raw scores of the skill tests for each participant were analyzed by a stepwise discriminant analysis procedure. The results of this study indicate that a test battery comprised of the speed pass, dribble, push pass, front shot, jump and reach, and the zig-zag dribble will provide an objective measure of basketball skill and effectively discriminate between successful and unsuccessful participants.
