Microcomputer Useage for Data Based Psychomotor Performance Measures in Adapted Physical Education.
Powers, P. J.
The paper describes Project RISPE (Rural/Remote Interdisciplinary Special Physical Education) and its data-based psychomotor curriculum for profoundly/severely handicapped children ages 0-21. The curriculum, divided into five diagnostic/prescriptive areas (placement, baseline, instruction, post-test, and maintenance), includes over 300 specific performance objectives. The computerized program for the data management system includes both descriptive and statistical records. Suggestions are offered for helping adapted physical education educators to integrate the computer into their psychomotor or sport programs for handicapped children by informally familiarizing them with computers.
